Skip to comments.Republican free-market madmen are getting in the way of a Socialist Takeover!

When he said "this sucker could go down," Bush wasn't talking about the bailout plan.
He was talking about the American financial system.
Even the mainstream media were stunned by the details emerging Thursday night of what went on behind closed doors in the White House Cabinet Room at a meeting that brought together leading members of Congress from both parties; the two presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain; and George Bush and assorted administration officials.
Beforehand, Congressional leaders said they were basically united on the bailout plan. It seemed like Bush and the two presidential candidates would give their stamp of approval, and the deed would be done.
But then, according to reports, House Minority Leader John Boehner announced that he and fellow Republicans just couldn't go along with a proposal that violated their free-market principles by putting the private sector's financial assets--worthless though they may be--into the hands of the federal government. The meeting then devolved into shouting matches and recriminations, according to reports.

I refuse to give them the webhit
He was talking about Barney Frank.
“Behind closed doors”????? This whole thing must be viewed by the general public. The people need and have the right to see who is saying what. Obama acts like he is controlling the whole thing. He is so out classed by the people meeting with the President, it isn’t even funny any longer.
If the average American can’t grasp what the left is up to here, including Obama’s attempts to politicize a VERY serious situation, then they deserve what they get!
congressman Trent Franks of Az. called nito local Phoenix radio and said the calls coming in on this bail out is 50 / 50
50 percent....NO........50 percent.....HELL NO !
How DARE they do such a thing!!!! ;^)
“If the average American cant grasp what the left is up to here, including Obamas attempts to politicize a VERY serious situation, then they deserve what they get!”
They do, but I don’t. I will be collateral damage I suppose.
I look at Americans, and I accept what’s coming, and that’s socialism. I’d like to avoid it as long as possible, hoping that I pass before we become a communist paradise like Cuba. But, I don’t think I’ll make it. America is well on the road to becoming a communist state. And someday, people will realize what was lost. That is when the price to regain freedom will be much greater, the blood of many will be spilled.
Yep, I see a bleak future.
“50 percent....NO........50 percent.....HELL NO !”
Amen to that! We don’t need this bailout! When will the liberals realize that we don’t want socialism????
If they want socialism that badly, then they should move to Europe....
It has been reported that Barney “Lollipop” Frank offered to...no...somewhere, someone is eating breakfast.
I was listening to glenn beck and he just made a GREAT POINT~!
The Democraps all want this, and the President wants this.
THEY HAVE CONTROL
Why do they NEED Republican support or to even negotiate with them??????????
For years they have been complaining (especially about McCain) that he VOTES WITH BUSH- BUT IN THIS CASE THE DEMOCRAPS ARE VOTING WITH BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This excerpt reads like the Democrats daily talking points.
Don't ya love this BS?
But who in Washington cares what the people think today?
I too was hoping that I would pass before it happened. I have however come to realize that I have a very good chance of dying in CW2 fighting those who would impose it on us. We are in VERY dangerous times.
the democrats care at least for the next 48 hours because the democrats do not want their signature on this during election time
You will not be alone, my friend. Many of us will die fighting for the principles upon which this nation was founded against “enemies, foreign and domestic”.
Let the so called “leaders” in our Congress bail this thing out with their own money...that they took from us anyway!
Silence (tolerance) IS consent in Washington DC my friend.
Evil will prevail every time good people don’t do enough to stop it...
And the taxpayer ALWAYS gets the tab.
I find the level of ignorance, even in many self-styled “conservatives” today, to be frightening!
You ain’t lyin’...
Congress is filled with treacherous traitors... We are nearing the point when only the 2nd Amendment will save us and we will have to use it before we lose it.
Oh that is PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!
Did you know who started the subprime markets ... Jimmy ‘the Hammer’ Carter (forced upon the mortgage lenders).
Do you know who came up with the zero-down idea ... that would be the Clinton Administration.
Do you know who put all of those lame concepts to work? That would be a Democrat controlled congress.
Do you know who tried to put an over-sight department on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? That was the Bush administration ... and it was shot down by the Democrat congress.
Do you know that two of Obamas economic ‘advisers’ were given control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by the Clinton administration and they both sucked about $100-million dollars out for their ‘service’ before walking away?
Why are people so short on the real history? Simple .. because they trust what they read/hear from the wrong sources (that would be the major media) and are to lazy to GO GET the truth.
Nearly EVERY single failed welfare program in the country (and that would be ALL of them) were ‘dreams’ of ‘change’ by Democrats and they are all major failures.
If the Democrat Party was a forest .... 80% of the trees would be dead and all of their speeches would paint a picture of the beautiful forest they created. So ... instead of all the rhetoric demeaning Republicans ... how about somebody sending me a list of all the wonderful, successful and spectacular things we have that were created at the hands of the Democrats.
I signed up at the age of 17, took the oath and meant every word of it. Did combat time in ‘Nam. I won’t shy away, they’d best not doubt me.
Thanks for your service, my friend. Then and now.
Dittos to you sir!
