    Maybe the US Government should finance all these companies to get back into business again in order to create still more jobs and make the unions even more powerful.. It really makes a lot of sense, doesn't it!
    No where did I say should. But regardless of what any of us think should be, no politician was going to let them fail. And if one did, that politician would be unemployed the next election cycle. Denying the truth isn't helpful. Government is acting the way we demand they act. And it is for just this reason Medicare, SS, and military spending will not be cut either. We the people make it impossible form our leaders to actually do the things needed and keep their jobs. You want to blame someone, look around you.

    An effect? Maybe. But not a positive one. They are incoherent and ignore reality. And have led to some real nutter candidates winning.

    This is the other reality.

    "But regardless of what any of us think should be, no politician was going to let them fail. And if one did, that politician would be unemployed the next election cycle"

    This not allowing any business to fail is a rather new concept to the United States and obviously not a healthy one for the people. It's amazing to me that there are so many who speak out against "Big Business" on the one hand who appear to support their bailouts with the other.

    So you are a fan of large multinational corporations then?

    The Tea Party is against bailouts while you and many others are for them. The line appears clear enough.

    It's not a matter of credibility. It's recent history.

    but wait a minute, wasn't it also Obama and liberals that preached that the Bush tax cuts were "only for the rich"? You can't have it both ways there.

    Joe, are you going to be posting on Nov 3? Or just hiding out in severe depression like all the other partisans will be? lol.

    Except that it looks like it will.

    54% told scott rasmussen (founder of espn) they're less likely to buy gm cuz the federal govt is majority owner

    sorry
    Go check out GM's sales per month and tell me if that matters.
