Note that Only The Congressional Democrats Are Yapping (John Batchelor)
The John Batchelor Show ^ | September 26, 2008 | John Batchelor

Posted on 09/26/2008 5:15:37 PM PDT by chuknchez

There is no deal likely, not today, not tomorrow, not this weekend, and the holidays next week move this melodrama to late next week. And why? Because the emails and faxes and phone calls to Capitol Hill are running 10 to 1 against the Hank Paulson deal. Ten to one against from the Democrats. One hundred to one against from the Republicans. Because the American taxpayer is making a stand. Because the House GOP has found the high ground, and the American citizenry is on the same high ground. Why do we see (right) Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Chuck Schumer at the microphone blaming and carping and whining and spinning? Because the GOP does not need to talk. The Paulson deal is unacceptable. No handouts to the plutocrats. The Democrats realize by now that they have goofed. How to get out of this. Yell louder? You gonna shout down the American voters? Do you hear them, Barney? " No deal!" Spoke to my colleague Jodi Schneider, Congressional Quarterly, and she told me that Nancy Pelosi has heard loudly from her members in the majority that if they vote for this deal while the GOP votes against they will be barbecued by their constituents. Roasted. Run out of their districts. It is not close. There is revolution in the air. Paulson and Bush are gone in months. The GOP starts again in January, and the young GOP knows that there is no future for anyone who signs on to this folly from Goldman alumni. One hundred to one.

"They have the majority to pass anything they want and a president that is willing and able to sign it. "

That open door at the end of the hall looks like it might really be a guillotine for those who try to pass through.

Too bad Nancy is not up for re-election this year. I can’t wait to see that old hag out of office. She is a disgrace.

UH, all Representatives are up for election every 2 years. I think Cindy Shehan is running for her seat.

I’ve been saying that we should name the group responsible for the Fannie/Freddie fiasco as “The Fannie Pack”. That way, Bwany Fwank can be the chief Fannie Pack’er

First with drilling and now with “no bailout”, the conservatives in the House have found a winning message. When will McCain and all GOP candidates latch on and ride these two issues to victory in November?

Rosh Hashanah is early next week. Barney and Chuck are (to my embarrassment) Jewish, and not likely to work then.

“We stay together or they will cut us up for bait.”

Maybe it’s time for a giant Freeper rally in Washington. Just like old times.

You got it. The offshore drilling that the Dems passed was the biggest joke to ever hit the pike, and; the bailout is even worse.

We need drilling everywhere in the country plus offshore. We need to be able to value the assets if the public is going to buy them. We need safeguards, tough laws for offenders having fiduciary duties, stronger SEC laws and not weaker.

You do not buy a house without an apprasisal. Yet, the Dems solution is always to throw more money at a problem without identifying the problem(s), or passing laws to prevent them from recurring, and holding people accountable for their mismanagement and even fraudulent waste of our money and/or their clients.

Meek’s line, my bars—and Barney as the Satanic Congressman from Sodom financed by the Fannie PAC.
