A message from Barack Obama:
And then yesterday, John McCain's big solution to the crisis we're facing is – get ready for it – a commission. That's Washington-speak for "we'll get back to you later." Folks, we don't need a commission to figure out what happened. We know what happened. Too many in Washington and on Wall Street weren't minding the store. CEOs got greedy. Lobbyists got their way. Politicians sat on their hands until it was too late. We don't need a commission to tell us how we got into this mess, we need a President who will lead us out of this mess – and that's the kind of President I intend to be.
You've heard of finance capitalism--this appears to be finance socialism.
Were I Barack Obama, I would announce now that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are calling congress back into session to deal with the financial crisis the day after the election--and if George W. Bush won't sign the plan they pass, they will repass it on Inauguration Day.
What the plan should be--ah, that requires a little thought...
