    “We should have went Swedish on them…”

    Best line in an excellent interview.

    Obviously Larry & Chris both picked up that reference, but for the sake of the average viewer, I wish CNBC would devote more time to explaining just what that implies. When Swedish banks screwed up royally, their gov’t didn’t just roll over like a bunch of indentured servants, they made absolute b***busters out of themselves and saw to it that the banks paid for what they got from Swedish taxpayers. There was another way, and Bush/Obama apparently ignored it.
