Bank of America & the largest poker pot in the history of the world

January 16, 2009

cardsThe news that Treasury will provide BofA with $139 Billion for the Merrill Lynch deal, reminds Rocky of the saying: “If you’re in a poker game, and you don’t know who’s the sucker, then look in the mirror.”

Rocky speculates that Ken Lewis’ December threat to walk away from the Merrill deal was a massive bluff. The US Government folded.

Although Ken Lewis may be getting heat now, after the economy heals, Ken Lewis will be remembered as The Greatest Gambler of All Time.

Rocky also shares, “When I’m at a racetrack, I’ll never eat at a restaurant called Mom’s, nor bet on a horse owned by The Government.”

    Rocky says that this is completely true and provides the following Money-Back Guarantee: If you EVER find him at a racetrack eating at a restaurant called Mom’s OR betting on a horse owned by The Government, hand him this page and he will hand you a crisp new $100 bill. No questions asked.

    Me thinks that Ken Lewis was dupped and there was no bluff.
