Hmm...This could be why Obama didn’t immediately say he would go to Washington to work on the bailout.

Curiouser and Curiouser.

We care, they don’t, including he MSM. We have our values they have theirs. Theirs are amoral, ours are moral. Common sense makes no difference.

did anyone hear obama on fox news talking to britt? I think he said credit card debt. “there was no consensus on credit card debt”.

Well of course they are. They all stand to profit from the meltdown, and obama benefits.

It is a travesty that McCain has failed to drape Fannie/Freddie about Obama’s neck. He’s got Raines, and Johnson, and the Fannie/Freddie donations, and McCain has the bill he cosponsored to reign them in. And McCain talks of this not at all.

I don’t know? However when was Greta Van Susteren interviewing Barney Frank last night she didn’t ask what Barney’s take on the Government Bailout of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac when Barney Frank said Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were not in financial trouble in 2003. This was reported on the Martha Maccallum show by John Gibson it is on his web site!

Well the word as to what happened is that the meeting was very angry in tone and ended bad...real bad. The repubs are standing firm. But of course Mccain is getting blamed, of course the RATS are blaming him—lying and saying they had a deal until McCain showed up...which we know is not true and maybe it will work in Mac’s favor since the country doesn’t want the bailout at all!

Obama now saying that as to the Presidential candidates it is not good for them to get involved in delicate negotiations...he said he has "found that" as if he has experience in delicate negotiations...oh wait! He does...he did have negotiations with felon Tony Rezko.

Also Obama is still saying he is planning on the debate.

McCain has been talking to house repubs to try and get something that is do-able...so he is working right now and all night, while Bambi has had time to do pressers.

Cavuto is saying that cooler heads will prevail, that maybe this isn’t as bad as they are saying...and that a bad deal is not going to help either. I think McCain is on the right track with not jumping on this hastily, Obama and the RATS sound like they want it NOW, but of course are too afraid to pass it through without Repubs on board. I hope people see them for what they are and vote them out in droves.

If I was McCain I would tell everyone that I wasn’t going to the debates. Then when they call out Obama’s name I would come out and say here I am, let’s talk about the economy!

When Americans see the 200 billion dollars in pork tacked on to the dim plan, 80 billion for new infrastructure like bridges and National Parks... loan giveaways to minorities... education funding for aspiring communists etc... they will turn on these bastards. Schnitt was all over this thing this afternoon. It is “new deal II”!

I agree, I think that is something in the Repubs favor—as it is the American people are against this bailout and when they find out that Pelosi and the rest of the rats want to add more on for people who don’t pay their bills, they will be even more angry and McCain will be the hero.

He said a bunch of stupid stuff and Britt didn’t call him on it. He blamed “speculators playing with other people’s money” or something to that effect. So either he’s just parroting the BS or he doesn’t understand the issue...or both.

Hume is an idiot. A typical jounalism major, who never took a single economics or business course in his life, and he darn sure has no idea what national income accounting is. Ask Hume what a credit deriative is? What do hedge funds do? How do they operate? Ask him what ERISA is? Where do you you find a due on sale clause? Sadly, I doubt that he knows.

Other than Hannity, Fox can’t really be trusted. Yesterday, they ran a sickening bio of the chosen one. A real love fest.
