"We're mad as hell and we aren't gonna take it anymore!" That seems to be the attitude of the American people. This bailout is the last straw.
The NYT is reporting that Representatives and Senators are getting slammed by constituents 95% AGAINST a bailout. The article is interesting. It shows what people really think of this administration. No wonder McCain is calling to cancel his campaigning. He's going to get painted as a White House supporter.
The best quote from the article:
War opponents, for instance, are telling lawmakers that they are tired of an administration that, in Mr. McDermott’s words [Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington, D], has “cried wolf” and played “the fear card” too many times by leading the nation into war in Iraq to find nonexistent weapons of mass destruction and curbing civil rights in the name of pursuing terrorists
I'm glad. It shows that Americans are tired of taking it lying down. They are still interested and engaged after what seemed to be a long period of complacency.
