The Case for Bashing Tony Blair, Bill Clinton and Timothy Geithner

Dean Baker makes the case here and he is correct, though he appears to be a much greater fan of Elizabeth "My Panty Hose Were Too Tight" Warren.

But I don't think he comes anywhere close to suggesting a correct fix for the problem of political opportunists, though he implies something needs to be done. What needs to be done is that the power centers that Blair, Clinton and Geithner controlled when in power need to be torn down. Without the power to favor financial institutions with cash and favorable regulations, no one would pay attention to these characters in the first place and they would end up where they should on the economic grid, perhaps as pimps in Cleveland.
