Obama lost control of his herd when Nancy Pelosi got up before a critical vote requiring broad bi-partisan support and let lose with typical DC hyper-partisan finger pointing (you can see the video here). Why did she tank a bipartisan bailout with partisan sniping? Is she really that dumb – or is she that calculating she figured another week of bad economic news and Obama would be a shoe in for the Oval Office?
As I noted in the post below the rejection of the Bill was highly bipartisan – 133 Reps and 95 Dems. Some basic 6th grade math shows us Dems made up 41% of the opposition! “Anything Goes” is the projection coming from liberals as they do anything to get Obama elected. Which seems to now include setting the stage for a massive stock loss equaling $1.1 Trillion dollars, more than the bailiout itself. “Anything Goes” was the mantra when the liberals tried to surrender Iraq to al-Qaeda by pulling the funding.
“Anything Goes” … We’ll remember that Nancy. No wonder Congress is only supported by less than 20% of the public (and a bizarre group of people that must be!).
