Just a note to let all the Obama peeps know that Obama agrees with Bush on the financial bailout. According to Yahoo "Barack Obama said on Friday he supported efforts by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve to shore up confidence in the financial markets and said he would hold off from presenting his own economic recovery plan. "The events of the last few days have made it clear that we must take further bold and decisive action to shore up confidence in our financial markets and avoid a deepening economic crisis that could jeopardize the life savings and well-being of millions of Americans," Obama said in a statement. Obama said he supported efforts by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to work with the Congressional leadership to find a solution to the deepening crisis." Obviously Obama had not heard that Congressional leaders had gone home citing they "didn't know what to do" and according to most pundits it is the Presidents job to take matters into his own hands to solve this crisis. Of course the aforementioned "action" is the sole proprietorship of El Presidente and should not be mistaken for any sort of responsibility of Presidential candidates, especially senators. I am just glad to report that Obama is going to "hold off" on stating what he would do, like his Harry Reid cohorts. At least he and Congress are consistent at accomplishing NOTHING. And President Bush thanks you for your support of this action and of course the Bush Doctrine.
