I can think of no better argument against this bailout than the fact *he* is for it.

It may be nothing, but to me it implied that he held himself separate from the populace.
As far as what he did say, I noticed that he only mentioned a couple of reasons why we are in the mess we're in now, when everyone knows that there are a lot more reasons then those he mentioned.
All in all, I think it was a pretty weak speech considering the depth and immediacy of the problem at hand. I think the plan he's pushing sucks and won't accomplish anything in the long run but to make more money for those who have already made a fortune off of their lack of forethought and business savvy.

He's been looking pale and ill since his last meeting with Putin at the olympics. He looks like hell.
