Since Paulson doesn't know how he's going to spend it, how does he know he needs 700 billion?
I'm starting to think the Dems need to just say no as well. It's beginning to look like the Repubs are going to do just that, and use this not only to court public opinion but break with Bush in time for campaigning back home.
That's good. Because I thought he might be acting like a petulant little boy who didn't get his way and is doing the absolute minimum required and can't bring himself to even utter Barack Obama's name. Thank goodness.
Folks have been pussy footing around the Keating Five scandal throughout the campaign. It can be argued that at this point its very relevant to our current economic mess, and if McCain wants to trot out Tony Rezko and pretend he has anything to do with this election, I say a commercial that gives a history lesson on the Keating 5 is in order.
From the start this campaign has been about "we" not "him". This is a grass roots campaign and the campaign management does not have a monopoly on good ideas. We need the ideas of everyone, and Barack and the campaign can sort them out, but to try to stifle people is exactly the wrong thing to do.
