Those companies were profitable... They goat boatloads of free money. The execs helped bring that in. In that regard the executives saved the day by ensuring those banks got the money they needed to get them out of their hole. They were rewarded handsomely for their hard work. This is exactly how markets and businesses work. You can't fault those companies or their management at all.
Maybe Americans will learn that fascism doesn't work and actually pay attention to who they vote for... Nah, that will never happen. We'll get another neocon, socialist, or fascist. Welcome to USSA.
