As far as drinking the coolaid and agreeing with whatever Bush wants to do goes, I'm sure republicans will do that without question and condemn the
rest of us who know better, for not accepting the lies and BS without question. The simple fact is that the war in Iraq was never about
"terrorists", it was about WMD's which were proven to never have existed there. There is no one else but the Bush Administration to blame for the
last 8 years leading up to an economy in the crapper. Average Americans aren't distracted by the Iraq war. Their top issue is the economy and no
amount of rhetoric or spin can trick them out of it now.
You have to ask yourself why the Republicans in Congress were so against this bill in it's original form? It gave Paulson far too much power and
clearly was never designed to do anything for the American People. It's not about us. It's about the Wall Street rich guys who screwed the economy
(that's you and I who aren't rich) and want us to bail them out for their screw ups. The House didn't pass it the first time, the Senate only
passed it with quite a number of revisions, and by the time it made it back to the house and passed, it wasn't the same bill that Paulson and his
cronies came up with. There will be quite a bit more congressional oversite of the bailout plan and the availability and usage of the money than Bush
or Paulson wanted. They're just going to have to accept it. As for what this bill is suppose to do for you and I down here in real America where the
price of gas continues to be high despite the price of oil per barrel having come down, since we're paying for bailing these guys out, I'd like
someone to provide us all with facts on what this will do for you and I, who aren't rich?
