The governor of Michigan calls anyone against the bailout “Un-American”. I don’t consider myself un-american, but I am un-Big Three, un-Detroit, un-UAW and un-Michigan if it requires forcing the government to “lend” huge amounts of money to businesses that no self-respecting bank will. The big picture is that most of the senators that don’t have UAW plants in their state are voting against this. Most of the people in this country that I have been reading about, talking to and have heard from think throwing gobs of money at a failed business model is a complete waste. Just because they’ve already done this for the financial industry doesn’t mean we have to double down and replicate the bad decision-making we’ve already allowed. Bush has no business intervening at this late hour–flip-flopping is pathetic–show some spine, W! If the Democrats insist on just throwing money to the existing boards/management with some lame-*ss mandate for “green cars”, I want personal guarantees from all the congressmen who vote yes on this that they will step down when these companies come back for more (as they most certainly will), because it proves that their congressional decision-making is wrong, bad and a hazard to this country’s financial well being. Isn’t anyone responsible for their decisions anymore? Or is that just for poor working stiffs that work in the real world?
