Obama To Reduce Budget Deficit By $262 On "Fewer" Than Expected Bank Failures





Archive this one for the funny pages.

Pardon us, but last time we checked, not only did the FDIC have no cash left in the FDIC, and was effectively in a debtor position vis-a-vis the administration, but of the top 4 banks pending for blow up, Colonial was under (granted with some arbitrarily optimistic loss expectations), Guaranty was about to be hawked over to a few siesta loving left midfielders, and Corus was about to... well, we are not quite sure what the hell Corus is doing these days.

The Congressional Budget Office, which forecasts a $1.75 trillion budget shortfall for the Sept.
