    Apparently Corbat is doing just as good a job as Pandit did. When you compare Citi to the other peers that have reported, this is pretty much a complete bed wetting.

    Citi is the new Fannie/Freddie..Implied government guarantee...they will never perform like any of the other big banks, and they will never file a bk.

    Very disappointing. The shadow of Robert Rubin still hanging over them.

    At least the current CEO wasn't picked by Weill or Rubin, but it will take awhile to exorcise the Weill/Rubin demons from this company. If I was Corbat I would ask John Reed to come back and be an informal advisor.
