The New Zealand stock market (first to open) is up 22 points (0.7%).

It's still off about 26% from its 52-week high. So far, the markets appear constrained in their approval.

Pelosi is a lying sack of hair. The sound of her voice makes me want to hurl.

I think they should just vote against it, but that’s MHO. The Dems have enough votes to pass it.

I just told my husband that voting against it might lose us the election...but do we really want our candidate to preside over a cooked up scheme like this where the Republicans are once again going to get the blame if everything goes south.

Let it be the Dems baby, let them win the election because of it, if that’s what voting against it means. At some point you have to stand on principle...just my 2 cents.

The press is going to spin it negative for the Republicans no matter what we do, so do the right thing...say no if it doesn’t meet the criteria “we” (the Republicans) think is necessary.

They can’t decide whether the bill is theirs or not.

The bill from the President was no good, so it was dumped. The Democrats worked hard. It was a bipartisan effort.

Oh, they mention Reps all right - In the role as reluctant children who need the discipline of the likes of Reid to join in the Dem efforts to save the Country.

Not a Rep in front of any camera, a complete shunning by the MSM.

I got so ill looking at her face I had to leave the room. I was being nasty and my sweet husband told me to be nice! I am not an angry person, but sure got angry looking at the likes of Polutesi, Dodd, Frank and Dirty Harry!

I lost it as soon as Polutesi said the “failed Bush policies caused the problem”! When will Republicans lay it all out and end their constant lies? Never mind, I know the answer. Never!

Amazing....These are the same people on Friday that were trying to ram a democratic bailout through.....with all the normal democratic special interest manure....ACORN, Labor bosses...etc. And if it were not for the House Republicans, they would have succeeded.....
And the sheer audacity to have BARNEY FRANK as part of the solution. Frank should be found guilty of covering up the mess and headed towards a cell somewhere.
Note there were no Republicans there....and the first thing that Dirty Harry said was “the last 8 years”. Remember, Harry said “we don't know what to do” about a week ago and now he is taking credit for solving the problem. These people are beyond disgusting

Schumer was a big face in the media at the start of this, but dropped out. Biden is also conspicuously absent.

Pelosi and co. seem oddly sour and unhappy...and keep saying this is "the administration's bill". What is the subtext here? What is in this bill that they want to be disassociated from?

Barnie “lollie Pop” and Senator (Countrywide) Dodd were given oversite over these matters. They've been in control for 2 years, this mess squarely belongs to them. They huff and puff and blame Repub’s, what have they been doing?

ACORN, Frank Raines, Jim Johnson, et al.

I've read bloggers say McCain didn't look at Obama buring the debate. Well, look at Harry Reid, he didn't even look into the camera... Why? because this is a sham and he knows it. Shame on this sorry group.

She and Reid have single-handedly saved the country.

Then she and Reid are also single-handedly responsible for the hundreds of bilions earmarked for corporate welfare.

GOP house should pretend to go along and switch their yes votes to no at the last minute, leaving the Blue Dogs in the crosshairs.

Well today showed us we know who and what they are - and that they feel comfortable in their lies to the people.

I’ll never forget today and what I saw and heard.

This wasn’t a government of the free people - this was a gang of dictators telling us what we would have to do with our money which we have entrusted to them.

We were not allowed to hear argument, rebuttal or more sane suggestions - and we are now expected to agree and shut up?

Hope somebody will save this crap from her mouth. This is not over. Banks and loan companies will fail. Credit Unions offer much more at better service than banks and I predict that in 5 or less years banks will pitch a bitch again and need bailouts. The RATS are destroying America financial institutions just with one small piece of the market - bad home loans.

“and keep saying this is “the administration’s bill”. “

they are? That’s interesting.

That’s the ploy they played toward the end of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform dog and pony show.

There are many similarities with the Imm. show and the current one. Speed, sending Cheney, failed, Bush going on TV, failed, meeting with Dems and demonization of “House Republicans”, Pelosi outright saying she won’t pass this without 100 Repub votes for political CYA. Only thing not here again is Bush calling the public racist for not supporting his bill.

In 1999 the Glass-Steagle Act was repealed by Congress and signed by Pres. Clinton.
In 2001 Alan Greenspan began lowering interest rates for too long a time.
In 2003 the REPUBLICANS in House passed a bill to put back the REGULATIONS REPEALED IN 1999, and it passed the House, but in Senate it got only promised 60 votes, and never made it to Senate Floor.
In 2004 five firms went to SEC (Christopher Cox?) and asked for an EXEMPTION from the RESERVE the banks were supposed to keep on loans, and wanted it changed to $40 dollars could be loaned for every $1 in Reserve...and got it. Those banks were Bear Stearns, Lehman, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanly and Goldman Sachs (where Paulson was from 1999-2005).
Banks and mortgage companies allowed people who really didn’t qualify to borrow home loans, and got sub primes, arms, balloons and things they didn’t understand.
5. THE DEMS PELOSI, FRANK, DODD, AND REID and other DEMS stood firm and DEMANDED that Freddi Mac and Fannie Mae loan to poor people to get homes...and now FREDDI AND FANNIE are under investigation for fraud. The poor people would have been better if they had stayed out of their lives.
President BUSH said many times in last 4-5 years that there needed to be more regulation and that there were changes that were needed in the financial system...but Congress has to do that!

Well, up to very recently the Admin has been telling us that the economy is strong and all is well.

Surely they weren’t “being less than candid”?

BTW, thanks Bush/Paulson for the nice unconstitutional screw job and getting to buy the worst performing investments of Wall Street.

The next 2-4 years are going to be very difficult for the Republic. Politically, the conservative movement and GOP fortunes would be greatly enhanced if BO were to win the presidency.

The problem is that we cannot afford this as a free nation. At minimum, we have to consider the war on terror and the federal courts. BO would be disastrous on both.

Yea, I just about lost it when I saw Pelosi up there lying through her teeth. It us unbelieveable in this day and age when everything you have every said or done is on the public record. We have video and audio and transcripts of the democrats saying there is NO financial crisis. 4 years ago, they said Bush and McCain were just unnecessarily alarming the American public.

McCain introduced reform legislation in 2005 and the Dems BLOCKED it.

Now they stand up there and act they the Bush administration was responsible and they saved the day.

McCain and the House republicans are to be commended for stopping the Pelosi/Reid/Frank train wreck last Thursday. This bill is still not great, but McCain’s leadership got a better overall bill.

Get the stupid thing signed and lets move on. Then McCain and the democrats have got to get out in front of this thing. McCain should buy up 30 minutes of national air time to explain what the democrats did the last 8 years or so to get us into this mess. Intersperse with actual video of the dems saying there is no issue. Tel the American people the truth.

How can the democrats just lie so brazenly?
