This is a big deal! America’s financial stability rests on the ability of Congress to put a bi-partisan package together. This package needed to cover necessary principles of protection for taxpayers. These principles were not partisan – they could have reached an agreement
But House Speaker Pelosi had to get in front of the cameras and make a partisan speech – degrading the Republicans and championing the Democrats.
This was totally foolish. She sent a message all right – the message is that she is a partisan buffoon who is unable to legislate – because legislation requires compromise and a willingness to act like an Adult. Right or not – Pelosi’s comments were ill advised.
2:20 PM CST: There are news conferences all afternoon by Democrats and Republicans – they are all pointing fingers – all blaming the other guy. What fools. I only regret that I have but one vote for a Congressman to give to my country.
We all know that we are not supposed to shake babies – but does that rule apply to people in Congress?
3:30 PM CST: Speaker Pelosi should apologize to the Republicans for bringing partisan politics into the debate. This is not about pride – it is about the future of our country.
3:31 PM CST: John McCain should keep his self-interested mouth shut.
3:31 PM CST: It is time for America to elect grown ups to Congress and the White House.
