The Wall Street Bailout failed in the House today. I am torn. On the one hand I don't want another Great Depression. On the other I don't want to give 700 BILLION DOLLARS to this administration.
The stock market fell 777+ points today also. They are back to the same levels they were when Bill Clinton left office. In other words, the past 7 years' gains have been wiped out.
No money for Social Security, no money for Medicaid or Medicare, no money for education, no money for anything. The GOP has always believed that government was the problem and should be eliminated. I guess they have gotten their wish.
George W. Bush's task I believe was to destroy the federal government. Well, mission accomplished.

I've been thinking about the John McCain cheerleaders I see on my TeeVee. They look as if they are simply going through the motions. Like they really don't care for this guy. But they want to see him elected, not because they think he will be the best man for the job, but because he will be worse than Bush. It's called the Tiberius Effect. Bush's legacy is 9/11, the War on Iraq, Katrina and now the meltdown of the financial markets. Bush has nothing that will save him so the only thing that can be done is to elect someone to the presidency that will be vastly worse for the country than him. So bad in fact the people will look back on the Bush years with nostalgia.
