The "right" can't think straight, they are dug in deep and in full smear mode. The world banks are in pretty serious trouble and all Sean Hannity can talk about is Bill Ayers. The McCain campaign has released they have "turned the page" on the economy so they can focus on smearing Obama.

Please, McLame tried to bring a bill up in 2005 that would have put the kibosh on Fannie and Freddie and it was never brought up for a vote in the Senate. Now Barney Frank is trying to accuse the GOP of being Racists. The Massachusetts Democrat, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the GOP is appealing to its base by blaming the country's mortgage foreclosure problem on efforts to expand affordable housing through the Community Reinvestment Act.
"They get to take things out on poor people," Frank said at a mortgage foreclosure symposium in Boston. "Let's be honest: The fact that some of the poor people are black doesn't hurt them either, from their standpoint. This is an effort, I believe, to appeal to a kind of anger in people."

What a louse, and yet he is part of the crafty bailout team. Stiglitz has it right. This bailout won't work, now what is the plan???
I can't wait for all the govt employees, Local, State, and Federal to find out that their pensions are gone too.

I'm having a hard time rectifying these two comments of yours:

"Please, McLame tried to bring a bill up in 2005 that would have put the kibosh on Fannie and Freddie and it was never brought up for a vote in the Senate."

"The majority party is responsible for assembling a majority vote . . . ."

In 2005, Dems did not control Senate. So I guess you are saying it is the Repubs fault after all?

Yes, the whole Congress is at fault. I would vote them all out. No exceptions. Too bad the debate last night wasn't like V. They could have blown the whole stage up and the candidates with it.

Most people feel the same way...except when it comes to their own representative, who most people feel is doing a great job.

Yeah, it all depends on whose ox is being gored. Hopefully this market debacle, and the astute leadership that's presenting in DC, will make people think twice this November.

And a bunch of you-know-whats would merely replace them.

So you are not voting, since you seem ot be of the opinion that it makes no difference who is elected to any office?

What I'm saying that if every member of Congress were to croak or resign, their replacements would be no better.
