    It was 96 DEMOCRATS IN THE house that blocked this bill from passing. You're probably right, there are some very stupid people in this country. And guess who they're supporting? The "messiah"--Barack Obama.

    Hey--maybe he'll phone in a solution to this problem!

    Just going to keep those fingers in your ears Oreo and ignore all those republicans who blocked it?

    2/3 of the Dems voted for it.

    Doesn't he understand that the 140 votes that Pelosi provided was part of the agreement?

    :iagree:

    Can't imagine if this thing actually passed though. Republicans would be praising John McCain as the greatest thing since sliced bread. :eusa_whistle:

    Democrats did not need Republicans to pass this bill. Democrats have the majority in the congress & senate.

    96 DEMOCRATS BLOCKED THIS BILL--Nancy Pelosi--democrat house leader only needed to convince 11 of them to change their minds to move this bill forward. SHE FAILED.

    Prior to the vote, on this supposedly bi-partisan bill--house leader Nancy Pelosi gave a 5 minute partisan-hateful--finger pointing speech directed at republicans & President Bush. I don't know how she expected to win any new republicans over with that. In fact, after the speech--I am frankly surprised she got 2/3 of republicans to vote for this bill.

    One thing is for certain:

    We now know how BO is going to handle that 3 a.m. phone call.
    He is going to have someone else answer it.

    A "weaker" version of the bill will pass within the next week or so.

    if by weaker you mean with less partisan bull slipped into it...

    then yes I agree. Until then..I doubt any bill will be passed.
