Putin on the Ritz

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/wall-street-executive-thanks-putin-ukraine

On the national level, the shift away from a focus on income inequality and reining in Wall Street stems both from the economy, which is slowly improving, and the dominant issue of the day, which is now the crisis in Ukraine.
The aggressive actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin have eased the anxieties of Wall Streeters sick of being portrayed as the enemy. “We obviously see other things driving the news cycle,” a top industry executive said. “Ukraine keeps the focus off the evil 1 percent, so I guess we have Putin to thank for that. The improving economy helps as well.”


These guys probably sit around waiting for another Tsunami or Chernobyl to further take the "heat" off themselves.
