    Amazing article from Steve Benen:
    Read the rest at the link.

    I know I'm a little late in posting this, but I just found it..Felt that Benen put everything into perspective, like I haven't seen done in awhile.

    I remember Bush holding hands with whatshisface.

    And I think there was an airline bailout in 2000, or somewhere around there. And TARP was under Bush, too. Was there a bailout during the S&L crisis in the 80s?

    And I guess BigAg subsidies could be considered a bailout of sorts.

    Begin the Pissing Match!

    I agree.

    After the Bush fiasco, the right is after blood. Anything the president does or doesn't do will be cast in a negative light. With regard to Glenn Beck, Ron Steward said it all.

    If everything that Obama is doing that is objectionable is just something some Republican has done before then how can anyone say Obama came to Washington to change things?
    Obama=George W Bush's 3rd term.
