Good morning, AB.

Did you count Bloomberg as one of the eight Republicans?

I'm looking forward to the opening of tax season, when the Sunday shows will have Charlie Rangel as a guest to talk about how to properly report and pay all income taxes. Maybe they will call it the “Lead by Example Tour”

Paulson is dominating the talk shows this Sunday, good thing that the vote for the 700 Billion Dollar blank check will be soon right?

This will be the public debate on the measure, Paulson on Sunday shows.

Morning all, thanks again AB for the thread.

I am fuming!

Once again the rats have laid the trap and we have fallen into it by giving rat lenders yet another pass.

Does Socialism loom on the horizon? Will our kids have insurmountable debt? The jury is out but coming back soon. ..............

John Boehner, can't wait to see him, he's the man!! Best we have behind Sarah.

frank luntz was just on FNC

he was saying “the public wants guidance.”

Notice how he never says DEMOCRAT PARTY controlled washinton DC.

The MSM (fox included) NEVER seems to have the ability to say DEMOCRATS predominate in dc. Even in unelected politions, the democrat party members hold those jobs.

It is all about spin now.

tight race means high ratings.

they have to prop up the marxist.

Morning rodguy,

I see three culprits in the financial mess. Corporate, executive and congressional. Corporations are doing what they always do, anything to make their profits. The executive is hampered by too many people they cannot get rid of but still at fault for less than successful management of the agencies they head. And congress that refused to address these problems, and still don’t know what to do other than ask for more donations and pass favorable laws supporting those donors.

This is one main reason to support McCain/Palin. They may not be able to do more than prior executives in stopping the DC mentality, but at least they will try.

Just a heads up. I was listening to Religion On The Line, this morning, because one of the hosts is Rabbi Joe Potasnik. The show is addressing the disinvitiation of Sarah Palin.

He had a guest on who is involved with the rally. He apologized for what occurred. Said they were forced into a position to revoke the invitation. Said that one of the group that was attending the rally sent a letter from their lawyer saying that their tax status could be affected if they allowed Sarah Palin to speak.

Lutz also said the key word is “accountability” and this is what everyone here on FR has been saying for years now.

we bought 80% of AIG at a severe low.

it was depressed in part by short selling which is now suspended.

rather than knee jerk perhaps we should be looking to see how we are going to make a profit.

Naahhhh... they leave all the tough questions for us. We start the ball rolling and then Rush, Sean and Mark kick it out of the stadium tomorrow.

Anyone hear Mark's show Friday? It was truly revealing! He exposed everyone and linked the deal to the rats like no one it was a riveting expose.

accountability is a very diluted word.

for democrats accountability is just code for government control and supervision.

for conservatives it is personal.

luntz has a credibility issue. He could not grasp Hillary is a socialist. I very much doubt he can comprehend obama is even MORE of a socialist.

Good analysis,in all fairness (Mark did point out on his show Friday) that on several occasions GW and the adm. did try and head off what was a demorat inspired fiasco. It went something like this:

We must let our constituents(those who don't qualify for standard home loans) to have the loans anyway.

So Dem/rats broke all the rules that bankers had used for years and sooner rather than later we have lots of people who bought homes they could ill afford that should not have been there to begin with, not paying their mortgages and defaulting.

Do we now give all of them a pass or let banks foreclose, giving passes just brings us one step closer to Socialism which is where we are headed.

Let's hope McCain and Sarah can turn this lipsticked pig around and head it back to the barn where it belongs.

FNC just ran a repeat of who’s to blame. It too fixes the date at 1999. That would be Clinton but it is also with a Republican congress.

Allowing the commercial banking industry to combine with the investment industry without solid oversight seems to be the underlying culprit in all this.

One more reason to oppose power and money in DC. We need government to keep the playing field level but they must be stopped from helping businesses, or choosing winners and losers.

Problem is I signed up with the govt. that seals borders, wins wars, does the basics of govt., not plays fast and lose in high finance. That wasn't the govt. I signed up for.

When businesses do well and make money, shareholders benefit. When things go the other way shareholders lose., To change that equation and we are head in the wrong direction IMHO.

But as I said yesterday I am not an economist/financier nor do I play one on TV.

what about the people born here?

seriously, the MSM is so busy trying to pump their ratings and rescue obama the marxist, that they are missing the “WHY”.

So busy repeating DNC talking points that they are missing the “WHAT”

What people want is a leader who speaks for them not AT them. Someone who is conservative as the majority of the nation. conservative is not locked in the past, conservative respects the past but builds a future.

The WHY is centered on why are conservatives united now behind McCain? McCain was persona non-grata to the base. Palin came in as a CONSERVATIVE and the core united IN 24HOURS! then people noticed the vp pick was a woman and asked, “but she is a conservative.”

The MSM is refusing to do their jobs under the first amendment. It is little wonder it is left to us amatures to do the job right and BETTER.

[that last sentence must realllly frost the “paid media personalities”]

If I had to guess I would say that Rush gets as much as 35-50% of his info off the web. Some days more, some days less. FR is always a part of that equation although we seldom get credit. Whether its 5% on some days or as much as 10-15% on others is hard to say but to infer that we have no influence at all would be naive.

Exactly,the banking system had some pretty hard fast rules it worked with for many years. For most mortgage seekers you had to have enough income to meet monthly obligations and you needed a substantial down payment in order to buy a home. When those rules were thrown out in the trash it was only a matter of time.

I like to go with the ronald reagan concept:

you can get a lot done if you don’t care who gets credit.

does it matter that bill clinton is the one who signed the 1996 immigration reform doing away with anchor babies? (not to be confused with birthright citizenship), the 1996 Defense of Marriage Amendment, or Welfare reform?

If we can, as unpaid volunteers, help then that is just a plus.
