At a loss for words, really.
The Bush administration asked Congress on Saturday for the power to buy $700 billion in toxic assets clogging the financial system and threatening the economy as negotiations began on the largest bailout since the Great Depression.This is the party of accountability, right? The party that treats any candidate who talks about raising taxes as though they're in favor of puppy and/or kittenicide? The party, if my horrible medium-term memory serves, entered office in 2000 with a budget surplus, all the while bemoaning the evils of "tax and spend" liberals?
Can't wait for somebody on the "conservative" side of the aisle to have the courage to acknowledge that our government can't keep spending money we don't have, or to question the value of building up the infrastructure of other countries while ours slowly crumbles. I won't hold my breath, though. I'm sure this crisis is all the fault of the Clinton administration, anyway.
