Here is a quote from a NY Times article today.
"As for the president’s television appearance, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, said the president should use it to explain things to the American people.
“Today we face what economists call the gravest economic danger since the Great Depression,” Mr. Reid said on the Senate floor. “We’ve come to this point after eight years of President Bush waging a war on fiscal responsibility. His Republican philosophy of removing all accountability from big business — and expecting no responsibility from them in return — has created this crisis that now threatens to devastate America’s working families.”"
My sentiments exactly. I am so fed up with the people in power saying, "How did this happen?" I am thrilled that people are demanding accountability. It is no mistake that this disaster has arrived at the tail end of W's presidency. I believe his administration has all but purposely created it, by being fundamentally economically irresponsible. You cannot lower taxes, spend billions on a war without just cause, and deregulate the financial system, and expect things to work out in favor of our country, let alone the average American.
Sorry, Georgy, it's a little too much like the little boy who cried wolf. The last time you urged immediate action without delay, it was to wage a war that many in high ranking positions deemed would fail, and it has miserably, all to chase weapons of mass destruction that weren't even there, which other people were ALSO telling you. So tell me now why I should believe you here? It certainly has the potential to affect me more directly than Iraq. But I am SO TIRED of the lies...
