I can see where people may have gotten surprised by the TARP bailout and not completely understood what was going on.
I don’t see any excuse whatever for the Government Motors takeover. None. It was a pure union payoff, and it will end up destroying Detroit’s car companies.
I still have not seen a credible argument for blocking the price discovery process. The TARP vote was a coward vote.
I agree with you on TARP, that was a most dire time for the markets.
The rest was a terribly misguided group of votes. No excuse at all.
