Lew being a Jew is irrelevant to his many contributions to America's and Europe's present financial crisis. He was a driver of legislation signed by Bill Clinton which ended the regulatory restraints of the Glass Steagall Act. Consequently, Wall Street was turned into a gambling casino and we know the rest. Obama is disclosing by his recent appointments that he continues to be a rubber stamp for Wall Street and the Pentagon. During Obama's first term, Lew pushed for economic restraints on indebted Americans comparable to those imposed on Europeans. If Obama had taken Lew's advice he would not have been re-elected. Imagine, as bad as Obama's administration is looking, what Romney's would look like.
