    I think that by last fall, the problem had passed the point of fixing. We are all in for a very rough ride. The Second Great Republican Depression has started.

    I was under the impression that the bail out was supposed to stop the bleeding and prevent an outright complete meltdown.


    Also, this honesty is at least refreshing. The dude is saying we're in for a rough ride and it could take years to dig out of the hole. Bush, his supporters, and John McCain spent much of the last 18 months telling us that the fundamentals were strong, and the economy was in pretty darn good shape.

    If there's a patient who needs CPR in one bed, and a patient in the next bed who doesn't need CPR, and you give the CPR to the wrong patient, guess what?

    The CPR won't help.

    THAT is what we're doing right now.

    It depends on how you define fundamentals. Bush is right, the fundamentals of a free market still are successful, this is until the government gets involved... Sure the economy as a hole is not great but the fundamentals of a free market are still solid.

    By the way, could you imagine if Bush said the economy is in trouble... The papers and Democrats would've ripped him a bigger hole (if that's possible). Even though the President really doesn't have law making power... It all comes from Congress.

    I predict there will be dire consequences with the stimulus.
