Well here we go... I am curious under what other pretense they will take further direct control of the banks. If stocks continue to drop, and credit-lines do not open, will they take even further control? Paulson clearly has been given too much power imo, and it's worse when you consider the guy that couldn't forsee this coming and did nothing to stop it, is the one slated to fix it.
