    Please vote Democratic this election. I can't handle any more. There is a lot of work to be done to turn these Bush years and Republican dominance around. Anybody who thinks that this was all caused by a Democrat led Congress with less than 2 years in control is fooling themselves. Try selling that somewhere else. Hopefully, people will realize that the Republicans are responsible for this mess. Either that or go right over the cliff...

    It was going to happen anyways, this was only a temporary fix, it would have been just as bad after Nov.
    Great market for other countries to buy up. Scary...the CEO's are probably on a plane now to another country..and that is NOT funny....

  5. Thanks but no thanks McCain


    He's not there to pull this through-- So under the republicans watch they destryoed the economy and McCain was named the so-called savior, really, so what did he accomplish last week... Other than alot of attention away from the dropping polls!!! Which by the way, have dropped even futher after the debate!

    He looked like such a idiot- he coudn't even face Obama is a "debate" no less!

    These Represenatives have heard from their constituents and most of them are against a bailout. Call your Senator and Congressman and let them know how you feel.

    I have been trying to get the final version of this bailout bill to see the HR number and see the changes. I don't seem to be able to find it. I would like to see how each representative voted on this. How can I find this?

    I would like to thank the Republican Party for stripping oversight and regulation away and leading us to the brink of the Greater Depression. This is going to be fun...

    Everyone on here blaming Republicans and Democrats alike need to stop, take a deep breath, and re-think their comments. This country is at the point where it doesn't matter whose fault it is. What matters is that we, as a people, come together to find a solution. I do not like what is happening on Wall Street. My retirement is gone. But, I do not believe that socializing our economy is the answer. These financial institutions made their bed. It is time to let them reap what they have sewn. We as Americans, outside of the government, need to come together and get ourselves through this mess by helping each other – neighbor to neighbor, friend to friend. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have shown that when it comes to true leadership, those in charge of both parties are impotent.

    The Republican leadership supposed to deliver half their membership and they now say their feelings were hurt by Nancy Pelosi so they didn't vote. Pelosi said nothing that would have caused this.

    Attempting to blame it on the Democrats is such baloney. The Republicans and their "leader" John McCain are jokes who put party before country.

    No more support for the failed policies of the republicans. The repubs are doomed.

    Obama/Biden will fix the mess that the republican administration left the country.

    Obama/Biden 08/12.

    What a bunch of fools/ Those who voted against have to answer to us all when the bottom falls out. If anyone beleives they will not be impacted welcom to foolsville. Than you Mr. McCain and "his republicans". We need to prepare for the worst. Suggest if anyone has a 401 or IRA you will be able to use those worthless pieces of paper to burn in their fireplaces this winter when they can't afford oil.

    November 4 is coming up–time to vote against every incumbent, Democrats and Republicans alike. These morons have demonstrated they can't run a country and it's time to give some new people, people not made cynical and arrogant by years of power, a chance.

    Where's McCain "leadership" within the republicans? McCain is a clown and Palin is a bad, bad joke. Next stunt please...

    I knew this was a gimmick all along from the beginning. It reeked of Karl Rove tactics and Mccain was at the top of its performance. NEWSFLASH: You cannot outsmart the Democrats, and the American people. Thank GOD ALMIGHTY – that Bush and his cronies did not get their way. They would be rich, while the American people suffered. The world will heal itself without their influence anymore come January 20, 2009. After America takes a long hot shower to rid itself of the yuk from the Bush administration.

    Hey republicans! Remember that this is your "dear leader's" bill. What's wrong? Looks like you're more afraid of losing your jobs and not getting reelected. Stop blaming Pelosi. You sound like children. Wah!

    Canadian View: I'm betting a dollar to a donout that next thing on the agenda will be the Republicans accusing the Dems for the Bail Out Failing as they're means of winning election

    One definition of lunacy is doing the same thing over and over again.

    We've had a republican president for eight years.

    It's time for a change!
