Brokaw blasts banksters angry about Obama win: “Yeah, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for them.”

A great come-back by NBC’s Tom Brokaw when a quite-sorrowful Andrea Mitchell asked him about Wall Street types who are vewy vewy angwy about President Obama winning re-election:

ANDREA MITCHELL: The business community, you speak to people here in New York, today again, they are very suspicious and very angry.

BROKAW: Yeah, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for them. The fact is, they’ve done pretty well in the last four years, all things considered. The big banks did get bailed out, and then didn’t spend the money anywhere else in the country. I think New York does distort your view about this a little bit. Given the amount of money that’s available around here, and what their expectations are about what they’re “owed.”
