Goldman Sachs (GS), said to be "totally freaked out" about the Volcker rule, is making a big lobbying push aimed at shaping the regulations defining the rule, Reuters reports. Blankfein himself is on the front lines: "Wall Street chiefs do not often lobby top regulators directly, but this issue is unusually important to Goldman."

    I seriously doubt he is "Freaked Out" all that much. After all this guy banked personally close to 80 Million bucks in the past few years....the only thing freaking him out his whether he gets to play golf every day first or hit the pool.

    Goldman should keep quite and let other companies like JPM or BAC do the lobbying. Government is watching each and every step of Blankfein including when he goes to restroom. If he pisses more than normal there will be inquiry. So be careful Blankfein.
