Chances are, Suze Orman disapproves of how you've handled your finances. She's said as much in her dozens of television appearances in the past months, becoming big enough for SNL to parody her. ("The greatest honor of my career.") Women's Wear Daily looks at how Orman became the shrill, savvy money guru she is today, and gets some plum backstage finger-pointing.
One favorite target is George W. Bush: "You blew up every single financial vessel we had and if you think you aren’t personally responsible, well, the blame starts at the top. There is no higher top than you, SIR!," says Orman. "You owe the American people every penny of your fortune and your family's fortune."
