Curt's a smart guy who should have realized he's not savvy enough to run a business of that size. (and he does realize that now, judging from interviews I've read.) So he's 100% to blame for losing his own money.
What really ticks me off is the "Let's just get more loans to fill these holes for a month!" mentality that he fell in to, especially when it started involving taxpayer money.
If he gets his ass handed to him over this, I sure hope that those bastards in government that okayed this go down with him.
