Mr. Obama: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

Mr. Paulson: We're closin' for lunch.

Mr. Obama: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this stock market what I purchased not half a year ago from this very economy.

Mr. Paulson: Oh yes, the, uh, the Unfettered Free Stock Market... What's, uh... What's wrong with it?

Mr. Obama: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. It's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

Mr. Paulson: No, no, 'e's uh,... it's... adjustin'.

Mr. Obama: Look, matey, I know a dead stock market when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that if you just legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, that their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous their prosperity will find its way up and through every class that rests upon it....

Having behind us the commercial interests and the laboring interests and all the toiling masses, we shall answer their demands for a gold standard by saying to them, you shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns. You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.

William Jennings Bryan “Cross of Gold Speech” July 9, 1896.
