ABC Newsblog Stephanopoulos: Paulson Fears Deal May Collapse

September 25, 2008 6:05 PM

ABC News' George Stephanopoulos Reports:

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson fears the Wall Street bailout deal is falling apart after a chaotic White House meeting, sources say.

Paulson walked into the room where Democrats were caucusing after today's meeting at the White House and pleaded with them, "Please don't blow this up."

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chair of the House Financial Services Committee was livid saying, "Don't say that to us after all we've been through!"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "We're not the ones trying to blow this up; it's the House Republicans."

"I know, I know," Paulson replied.

Democrats believe that House Republicans are torpedoing the framework deal reached in the bipartisan agreement of principles released by the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday.

The Democrats are playing into the hands of McCain and the House GOP. This bill is incredibly unpopular, and they are crediting McCain and Congressional Republicans for standing against it. This is hilarious!

When talking about Barney Frank, you need to be more specific -- Blowing what up?

Here is the must see video

Thank you House Republicans!

Screw you Nancy. You have a majority and no filibuster in the House. No one’s stopping passage there, you just won’t cover for this horrific plan and they aren’t interested in covering your hides.

Like I said, we may be forced to do something, but that something damn well doesn’t have to be what Paulsen cooked up.

They better come up with something to replace it. This isn’t a situation where just stopping it does anyone any good.

It would be a disaster. If they have a better idea I am all for it, but they have to get it done no later than Monday or we all could be screwed.

Wasn’t Nancy Pelosi one of the largest receivers of payoffs from Fanny Mae?

it’s the House Republicans.”

I thought McCain was being blamed by the Dems? He’s in the Senate. GAWD, the DEMS want to blame everyone else so bad they can’t get their own blame-game straight!

On Fox Business right now, I'm watching her "expert" Barney Frank do his tap dance. Frank is as crooked as a dog's hind leg, tor reasons I put in my column this week. See below.

The "leader" on the Senate side is Chris Dodd. He's in the pocket of Fannie Mae. I covered that, too.

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "We're not the ones trying to blow this up; it's the House Republicans.""

What an ultra-maroon. I guess she hasn't heard that Capitol Hill phones are burning up with calls from people livid over this bailout plan.

These stories are so bogus. Aren’t you all in total sympathy for poor “livid” barney Franks, an absolute goon who never lets anyone else talk? And of course democrats are all doing the public good it’s those evil republicans and McCain causing all the trouble.

Boo hoo they didn’t reach a deal the first day. What pathetic scum they are, and you can be certain the dems will wreck our economy for political gain. Duh.

Bush and Paulson focused on being sure they had something the Dims supported, 1st; knowing their majorities could kill a deal.

In that process they gave away too much.

Then, they tried to force the House and Senate GOP to simply accept what Bush and Paulson had given the Dims.

There was no “bi-partisan” deal.

There was a Bush-Paulson Dim deal, and the House and Senate GOP was simply told to accept it or be the spoilers.

If Bush and Paulson had gone first to the House and Senate GOP, got THEIR limits into the plan, took that plan to the Dims as the Bush-Paulson plan, Bush would have done right by his party and its principals and the American people.

Dems are too cute for themselves. They wanted a liberal bill and then they wanted to force the GOP to give them political cover. At the same time, the people who are opposed to this are playing with fire. WE NEED A LIQUIDITY WORKOUT. The concern is that if this isn't fixed, we have a crash.

We need to show an alternative that would work.

Well, it may work out better.... with Bush's name attached to what is in essence the liberals' dream deal... it does have the effect of turning rabid anti-Bush Dem voters into attack dogs against this crazy plan, or at least throws them into confusion. How can they support their leadership if their leadership is in bed with "the chimp"?

Newsflash for Pelosi & Co. From what I’ve seen posted on some forums it seems even liberals are up in arms about this bailout and oppose it.

The lack of liquidity moved the markets up 200 point today. That’s an amazing thing to do with no cash...

Markets will go down tomorrow. It was thought a deal would be made today. Uncertainty is not the markets friend.

Yes it will go down, but not due to lack of liquidity like the fear mongers scream. But because the kids won’t get there way so they don’t want others playing with their toys.
