The bankers drew the short straw and were asked to sit down with the president for a talk. Seems the banks are not lending even those who got bailed out by the government. I seem to remember that some of the banks were told they had to take the government bail out. As far as the lending, that's one of the reason they got into this predicament, lending to those because they were told to lend to people they might feel were not a good credit risk.
What still private industry will be receiving invites next from this president and will the doors be left open for all to see and hear what is said and who does all the talking?
