You just cannot make this stuff up ...
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, September 25, 2008

Yeah, these guys know exactly what they're doing:
In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy.

"It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."
Freakin' amazing.

Can I call the treasury dept and ask for a really large number too?

A pox on all their houses. At this point, I am considering very strongly voting against any incumbent simply on the grounds that they’re all idiots, fools, liars or worse.

So the Bush admin warned the dem majority
17 times
that this was going to happen and the dems blocked it each and every time.

And watch Bill Clinton say:
“(Democrats, who were) resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”
Will we ever see any media outlet actually point the finger, but no they are worried it would lose the election for Obama (and it would and should).

But so long as we have democrat aligned sheriffs and DAs threatening arrest to another who "lies" against Obama then we are entering something really scary

I dunno. McCain rushes back to Washington with big fanfare to "address this crisis" and, in the end, doesn’t achieve very much (no consensus, no GOP support, no passed bailout bill). Meanwhile, Barry-O just stands there and looks his usual GQ-esque self. I cannot tell who is the bigger form-instead-of-function poseur here.

Right because "everyone" was expecting this was going to be an easy fix and we should just trust the Bush administration with $700 billion dollars.

Dr Evil would be gobsmacked...

I am going to use this theory on April 15.
