The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

GOP pres­i­den­tial hopeful Newt Gin­grich says he sees no ev­i­dence that the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion is tak­ing steps to pre­vent Iran from build­ing a nu­clear weapon.

Mr. Gin­grich told CNN’S “State of the Union” that Iran is play­ing U.S. lead­ers for fools.

He said the White House is “try­ing des­per­ately” to per­suade the Is­raelis not to launch a pre-emp­tive strike against Iran’s nu­clear fa­cil­i­ties. But Mr. Gin­grich said no leader of Is­rael could re­spon­si­bly al­low Tehran to have any nu­clear ca­pa­bil­ity.

Iran in­sists that its nu­clear pro­gram is for peace­ful pur­poses.

In all of 2010, reg­u­la­tors seized 157 banks, the most in any year since the sav­ings and loan cri­sis two decades ago. Those fail­ures cost the fund about $23 bil­lion. The FDIC has said 2010 likely was the high-water mark for bank fail­ures from the Great Re­ces­sion. Last year’s 92 banks fail­ures cost an es­ti­mated $7.9 bil­lion.
