President Obama did everything but quote from Adam Smith in his recent town hall on CNBC. No, he insisted, he's not anti-Wall Street, not anti-hedge fund.Personally I'm one of the people who feel he actually hasn't done enough to crack down on Wall Street, but that's neither here nor there. What's more important, I think, is that I've found some evidence indicating that Steve Schwarzman may have had a point when he said "It's like when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939." He was referring to Obama trying to raise taxes on private equity managers -- really makes you think of Hitler, doesn't it? -- but he could have been talking about something that is likely to make the fat cats even more likely to flip their lids.
