    So, just to make sure I have you straight:

    -We have to keep loaning them money for however long it takes to pay it all back;
    -We have to also keep spending money on everything else as well, until the banks pay it all back;
    -NONE of this is in any way contingent on the performance of the economy.

    Right?

    Isn't your position as I described it?

    I think my position is pretty clear that we need to support our financial system otherwise the dollar will not be worth the paper it is printed on.

All this tells me is that neither side has a freaking clue what the future holds but they are jockeying for position to stand clear of the blame.

    The sound our economy is making is a giant sucking sound.
    It tells me that Obama is just as inexperienced and untested as some of us feared during the election. He can't even keep a message on track...

    Um...
    You DO know that --asking-- you if I understood your position correctly isnt putting words in your mouth, right?

    <edit>
    I guess, from you lack of response, you do NOT understand that.
    Hmm.
