Republicans Hasten Economy Toward Recession & Obama Toward White House

The failure of House Republicans today to pass Paulson's $700B economic stimulus package -- which despite all talk to the contrary is not a bailout -- shows a lack of understanding and a lack of leadership. Republicans' abdication of responsibility places their personal interests above the good of the country and will ensure more Democrats win Congressional seats, and likely the presidency, in November. I am not sure I have ever been more disappointed in my party.

P.S. The media should be tarred and feathered for pitting Main Street against Wall Street. They are the same. Who among us has not sought a loan on our car, house, etc? Who among us does not own stock, if not in a personal portfolio, then as part of a 401k, 403b, IRA, pension, etc.? To try to separate the two is ridiculous; akin to lowering the water level on only one side of the tub.

It is politics above all else...SNAFU; Stuation Normal, All F&%*ed UP!! The "business" of getting elected (and staying there for your entire life) has overshadowed any real caring of elected officials for real people who put them there in the first place. In addition, the "media" is a sham. They are NOT reporters they are spin masters that promote their pet items, politicians, and stories that win them ratings. Truth and actual FACTS are now a lost art. It's very sad. Once again it is the American people who are sold down the river.
