FT front page roundup

Jean-Claude Trichet, head of the European Central Bank, told the elitists at Davos that banks better stop hoarding all the free monies he'd been giving them. He then burned a copy of the Basel II Accord, tipped over the podium, and walked off stage.

Barack Obama publicly castrated Wall Street douches who insisted on bonuses this year.

Bankers reacted to the president's remarks with a mixture of anger and resignation.

"Attacking Wall Street is like fishing out of a barrel at the moment," said one financial executive. "Obama is in the middle of a tough political battle to get the stimulus plan approved. He has to say these things."

Yea, dude. He actually really likes shoveling billions to the people who broke everyone's economy, and nevertheless continue to reward themselves. He just has to pretend he doesn't. Ha, yea. Sorry, fuckers. "The Man" is now black.

Ford "Everything is Fine, Seriously" Motor company is drawing on an emergency "prudent" $10 billion credit line.

Wen Jiabao, speaking in Germany, said China doesn't manipulate its currency, but will manipulate it at a "reasonable and balanced level."

And Illinois governor unemployed man Rod Blagojevich, Hairpile of Freedom, was impeached by the Illinois legislature, much like Rosa Parks.
