As a new subscriber to The Nation, I waited with enthusiasm for my first print addition to arrive in the mailbox. I was disheartened, however, to read this editorial. Really, you were simply dying to be rid of the Bush administration, and now that the White House has been properly deloused, you pull a Limbaugh on Obama. Give the man a chance! There may come a time when the FDIC has to take over the banks, but it is more wise to start off small. Remember, many people cannot see the bigger picture. If the banks were nationalized tomorrow, the US would go into culture shock. If you have an illness that could be effectively treated with medicine, would you try it, or jump ahead to surgery where the risks could kill you? Give Mr. Obama some breathing room, or run the race yourself in 2012.
