    Does this clause in the bailout bill make anyone else uncomfortable:

    Why would we give one person so much power with absolutely no recourse against him or her?

    Not even mentioning we have no idea who this person will be in January.

    I posted this too. Glad to see others are aware. I can't wait to hear our republicans take on this. How will they spin this.

    So far, not a peep from them, because this is downright bullshit. I say the Dems won't give him this power.
