There are a few pieces of the puzzle that are missing: accumulated wealth in the hands of a few that allows undue influence of public policy, candidates (who are willing to be influenced), elected officials (who are willing to be influenced), the decimation of legitimate and wise regulatory legislation by, yes, a Democrat: Clinton. So…this is Wall St. having much to much money and power, democrats who are not serving the public good (and in some instances are as much war criminals as Bush, Cheney, Powel, Rice, etc.). To point the proverbial finger at Wall St. and the monetary costs of war, exonerates by omission those who have the power within the Democratic party who have aided and abetted the policies that took us into Iraq and Afghanistan (and other countries as well), aided and abetted the removal of banking regulation and corporate excess, those who have been elected by any party and now hold office AND who do not speak out, nor vote, nor propose or draft legislation that is in the interests of the common good.
I admire the work of Robert Greenwald. Nevertheless, I believe that it is a serious omission to eliminate the culpability of not only a vast number of Democrats in office, but most particularly those we choose not to name: if you are a Democrat it's Obama and Clinton, etc.; for the Republicans its Bush, Kissinger, Powell, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice, etc. Neither party is without blame. Neither party is without the guilt of silence and complicity.
