Why wouldn't capture apply to the Obama administration as well? He received plenty of funding from wall street, no?

Because eight years of featherbedding and partisan pruning emptied the appropriate SEC, DOJ, Treasury, and FBI enforcement offices horribly short of personnel to bring financial crimes cases.

And it's not like a single Republican will vote for the increased funding and reorganization needed to fix the situation.

@NYCMT: Not sure damage during the Bush years can explain a continued decline during the Obama years.

@BMunro: Since the Democrats controlled Congress during Obama's first two years, Republican attitudes aren't really relevant.
