"I can see where people may have gotten surprised by the TARP bailout and not completely understood what was going on."

I still have not seen a credible argument for blocking the price discovery process. The TARP vote was a coward vote.

I was against it. But you have your own Republican-appointed Treasury Secretary saying that if you don’t do it, the world will come to an end. It was not evident to everyone at the time that Paulson was a crook. I thought it was a mistake, but a lot of smart people said it was the only possible thing to do.

So, sure, the vote was misguided. But I’d be more incline to forgive it if he hadn’t voted for Obama’s Government Motors takeover.
