The US has banks all over the world and I think you picked the wrong cause here. Protectionism does not work.
It's China's dishonesty in rating their currency and stealing of protected intellectual and patented properties that is the problem; Not doing business with them.
In fact this may be a very good thing if it helps lead to a properly valued yuan and it might.
A fellow named Barney Franks and his flunkies were the primary cause of our issues here with banks. Banks are just entities, it's when they are lead by crooks they become an issue. They are not inherently bad, just like no corporation is bad. Sometimes the Exec's can be very bad, but the banks and corporations are the stockholders. These days they are owned by ordinary people as part of their retirement investments. Hate the crooked Exec's not Grandma for owning stock in her retirement portfolio.
It's hard to take seriously the idea of a person criticizing Obama and at the same time embracing his invented Class Warfare. Literate people know the truth and are not fooled by class warfare or folks who hate business and don't really seem to know why as they covet their next Mac or IPad.
Remember when the fanatics in the Gulf region boycotted the BP Stations? They actually thought that BP owned them They hurt their own neighbors out of illiteracy and bigotry. They are why people like Obama get elected in the first place.
