Would you lend to someone who couldn’t pay you back?

That’s what the Paulson/Bush team is publicly asking financial institutions to do.

Why are we in this fix in the first place? Because people couldn’t pay back their loans! If you had $700 billion, would you give it to the very people who put you in this fix? How stupid do they think we are?

We are very stupid if we swallow the idea that this bailout is designed to help anyone who doesn’t have a Swiss bank account.

Paulson didn’t make $700 million on Wall Street being so stupid he doesn’t know why his bailout isn’t working. He is the magician convincing us, through the press, that he’s helping us while picking even the lint from our pockets.

The Bush/Cheney/Paulson administration has spent the last eight years lining the pockets of their cronies at the expense of the rest of us. The “credit crisis” won’t be solved by lending more money to the fleeced, and they know it. They’re laughing all the way to the bank and can’t wait until January 20th.

Bush/Cheney/McCain/Paulson jiggered the tax code to spread the wealth to one corner of the toast, then they recoil in feigned horror when Obama suggests spreading it around a bit. It’s time to unjigger the tax code so there’s some real money in the system, not just “securitized” IOU’s.
