Moral tone--that's a laugh and a half. While I'd be the last person to defend Clinton's personal ethics, don't pretend that the "moral tone" in the business world isn't all about making money. Money is the measure of the winners and losers, of who's right and who'se broke. While they were paying themselves exorbitant salaries--many times that of the average worker, beyond what even legendary financier J. P. Morgan felt was suitable (Imagine! Greed that would have made J. P. Morgan blush!), they claimed the market demanded their special qualifications. But now that so many of them seem to have been qualified mostly at lying and cheating, and by cashing out early, they keep their dough while the suckers get taken to the cleaners.
As if any further evidence that Bush just doesn't get it is necessary, he still thinks investing Social Security taxes in the market is a good idea, despite the fact that his own party now seems to consider the issue radioactive.
The bottom line: In addition to touting his so-called business expertise, Bush campaigned as the responsibility candidate. As such, he has not one to blame but himself if he's held accountable for his actions and statements. (Or--oh, my--was it all a pose?) In my view, it's high time.
