Economic Bailout

They said they would be working through the weekend. I checked today, Saturday, at 3:00 PM PT.  H.R.2638”, “Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, and for other purposes”, had passed. No other Nay or Yey votes so far. (more…)

A funny thing happened on the way to the debate. Some guy name Paulson told some other folks that life as we know it was about to come to an end, and pretty soon, with no credit, we’d all be back to the barter system or the gold standard or some darn thing.

Folks was gonna be living hand to mouth and lucky to have a job, and forget livin’ to be old, ‘cause you know, we’d probably starve by then with no 401K. So Paulson told some people called senators all about this, and boy! Was there a stir! So them senators got together and figured a senator’s gotta do, what a senator’s gotta do!

Obama rebuffed his GOP rival, saying the next president needs to “deal with more than one thing at once.”…]


I really can’t tell from this whose idea it was but, see this:

McCain campiagn asks to suspend debate to focus on economy

Associated Press

Republican John McCain said Wednesday he is directing his staff to work with Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign and the presidential debate commission to delay Friday’s debate because of the economic crisis.


I don’t know about you, but a one person debate sounds more like a speech to me. How will this drama play out? I just heard from PocPuma that even Rendell thinks it a good idea to take care of business! And really, can you get any more snarky, then over the “deal with more than one thing at once” comment? They are both senators first after all! Interesting maneuvering going on.
