Here is the deal.
You have a rabidly unpopular bailout plan that 33% of folk hate because they feel like they are getting stuck paying for a party they weren’t even allowed to attend and 33% of folk hate because someone told them too, even though they have only a passing idea of what it actually means.
John McCain made a BIG deal this morning about how he saved this thing and got it done.
Except it ain’t done.
Barack Obama made a point of layin low and trying to stay out of the foolishness, supporting it tepidly at best, because near as I can tell, he KNEW it was ricketty and after watching McCain run out on the plank so far, he decided the safest plan was to simply mind his Ps and Qs and stay on his grizzle.
So, here we are, no bailout, Dow down 700 600 575, a Jewish holiday tomorrow, and pretty much nothing good has come from this so far.
And whose fault is this?
Pick a name out of a hat, and you would probably be right.
