Stocks slide for third straight day
Worries about banks are sending stocks toward their third straight day of losses -- albeit, not as bad of a loss as the previous two days -- about 90 minutes into the trading day.
As of 11 a.m., the Dow is down a little more than one-tenth of 1 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is down by about the same amount and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down nearly half of 1 percent.
Wall Street hates President Obama's plans to put new limits on banks and his pugnacious attitude, saying he was ready for a "fight" with the Street.
Of course, Wall Street got some good news from the Supreme Court yesterday, which eliminated the limits on corporate spending in political campaigns.
This will be a boon for those of us in the battered media industry, which will see an influx of new advertising for this fall's mid-term elections and the 2012 presidential election.
