- If the Congress passes the bailout of all bailouts and allows the golden parachute clause, Dems will forfeit their advantage within the next two election cycles. I will be among those who wash my hands of them. This is a moment of truth.
- If a man shows up on your doorstep and says you must buy a bridge or millions will die, do you trust him?
- If the man tells you there's no time to read over the details of the deal--you must sign now!--do you still trust him?
- If the man tells you that he will oversee the deal and that you won't actually be managing it at all, do you still trust him?
Congress was offered the opportunity to buy a pretty new war under these circumstances. Remind me again--how'd that turn out?
