There is nothing much to say about today’s failure in the Democrat Congress to get a bailout package passed It was a bipartisan rejection of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Bush bill – bottom line.
And I doubt the hyper-partisan pre-vote speech by the bitter liberal Democrat Speaker of The House was a rallying cry for support:
A reminder to Pelosi: Bush called for reform at least 17 times while in office, Democrats blocked it. McCain co-sponsored a bill to head this off in 2005, Democratds blocked it. Democrats were going to go home for the election until Bush called on them to act. Pelosi is the biggest disaster to America since Benedict Arnold.
Addendum: Remind me again were Obama’s vaunted ability to cross the aisles and bring both parties together played out here again??? Â If not now, in a moment of national crisis – when?
