Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan has been held up as the icon of everything that a financial corporation CEO should be!
Turns out he is really no different than many of the other "lesser" leaders as oversight and controls inside the firm apparently failed and a surprise $2 billion trading loss was disclosed to the markets.
The full extent of the loss and ultimate impact of this "grievous mistake" may not be know for some time.
Jamie Dimon, like the rest, "are who we thought they were!" (Video Rated PG-13)
Now on to the Watcher's Council voting results!
The Watcher's Council nominations for the week of April 16th were presented, the votes were cast and counted, and the winner will now been announced!
For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!
Each week members select and submit an article of their own creation in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.
While you may not always agree with what you read, that alone may make the experience that much more valuable!
Once the submissions have been received at an undisclosed location in secret ballot form, the Watcher's Council members then individually vote for their favorites.
Those votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner named for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize consists of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end though, we all win because of the range of information and important analysis received on the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watcher's Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
