The Bailout Drama

Ed Morrissey notes that the Dems can pass this without any GOP help. However, they don’t have the courage, nor do they want to be siding with Bush on this.

McCain is no solid Republican. When he gets consensus he gets it from the Dems. [hence bipartisan action] He can support ‘the plan’ and the Dems would have their cover.

He’s still thinking.

In the meantime Diplomad was kind enough to share thoughts on McCain or rather Obama.

He, like the Japanese in WWII doesn’t understand something big.:

the principle that “no plan survives first contact.”

McCain keeps throwing Obama for a loop because McCain isn’t doing what he’s ‘supposed to be doing’. Had any Democrat over the years actually studied up on McCain instead of making him a Bush III, they could have seen this.

A bit of holier than thou, a bit of personal responsibility, a bit of the long bomb, then throw in a heated campaign……
Obama’s deer in the headlights/snarkiness/call me when they need me is ridiculous.

  1. I think this is the biggest rip off in the history of the USA
    They say if we don’t bail them (who every that is) out then we will hit rock bottm. Hell, I been at rock bottom. And you know what, when your at rock bottom you have something to stand on. And when you have something to stand on then you can stand up and make something for yourself.
    $%$# A HAND OUT
    %$# A BAIL OUT
    How about a free market? Is a free market a new idea? I just don’t get it.
    Mad as hell about government and it giving away my hard earned money.

    UPDATE: I’ve (Terri) have edited out the cussing. Sorry Mike. I don’t like it. Elsewise, the comment stands as Mike’s.

  2. The ‘bailout’ (and I don’t understand well enough to have a good opinion) would not be a total giveaway to these companies.

    The taxpayers would buy cheap and own these areas and could resell them high (or higher) to others later. There is no real knowledge of what this will cost, or even if it will cost us anything.

    People seem pretty certain that yes, we’d hit rock bottom without it.

    I know people who’ve been through the depression and as bad as we whine about $4/gallon of gas I really don’t want to see a depression.

    Your hard earned money is a tribute not only to you, but also to ‘the system’ that makes it possible for businesses to flourish.

    From what I understand of ‘the system’ small businesses have been continueing to operate successfully because they don’t survive as much on short term loans like large businesses do.

    However within ‘the system’
    – anyone who has investments in the market is likely to suffer directly if there is a domino affect with banks.
    -anyone who does business with anyone who has investments in the market is likely to suffer if there is a domino affect with banks
    -anyone related to the people above are going to suffer too.

    Sometimes you have to just roll the dice.

  3. Does everyone love how the elitist illuminati have flip flopped the plans of the bailout? We knew it would happen.
