Dean: You shouldn’t get rewarded in a capitalist system for doing a crappy job

Apparently Howard Dean is now a paid contributor for CNBC. Good idea? Well it only took him his very first appearance to offer a perfect explaination of the American outrage over Wall Street’s bonuses:

(h/t) Think Progress

DEAN: I think you guys are looking at this the wrong way. I don’t think people resent Wall Street because they’re making millions of dollars. Everybody wants to be rich in this country. I think people resent Wall Street for making millions of dollars while the folks who are reading the newspaper are out of work. You shouldn’t get rewarded in a capitalist system for doing a crappy job. That’s what the issue is.

(emphasis mine)

Yup.
