Bush went on TV tonight to tell us that we have to support the creation of a $700 billion bailout plan for Wall Street.
$700 billion is the size of the defense department. We're now supposed to create something that big in a week's time.
There is no doubt we have to do something to boost confidence in the market and try to avoid a major collapse of the modern financial system.
I just don't want to hear it from this guy.
Does he honestly think he has the slightest bit of credibility left?
He's marginalized the most important job on the planet and decimated our position as a world leader and friend to other nations.
I'm tired of hearing words coming out of his mouth because we can't rely on what he says.
We've been lied to about WMD, Valerie Plame, torture, Katrina, Anthony Gonzales and countless other things. I mean really... countless.
So please, put someone else up there in front of the camera to tell us that the tax payers are going to have to foot the bill for the corporations and high net worth executives who couldn't keep from gorging themselves, did so without fear of oversight, and never really trickled much down either.
Please Mr. President... go away and have someone else deliver this news.
