    I guess....somehow....it's "different" when "conservatives" give-away tax-dollars.

    :rolleyes:

    Isn't it obvious? BUSHCO's flippin'-and-floppin' on where our $700B is being spent.

    As usual....they're restating their bu$ine$$-plan. :rolleyes:

    Whew!! At least there's no SEX involved! Then, they'd REALLY be in-trouble!!!!

    Maybe the House Democrats could have thought of that before writing a blank check with no oversight on how they money would be used.

    Yeah.....that's what it was....the Dems sneaked it past the Repubs. :rolleyes:

    So, what's that say about the borrow-and-spend Repubs? Lemme guess....the Repubs figured China would pick-up this tab, as well?

    No one "sneaked" (nice verb usage by the way) anything by anyone. In case you did miss it it was House Republicans that led the charge against the first bailout bill. A big reason was a complete lack of oversight.

    Now I agree that Republicans have spent a ton of money as of late, but at least we made an attempt to get some form of oversight, which in hindsight seems like a pretty good idea right about now.

    So are you denying that House Republicans did exactly what I just said they did?

    Yeah....sure......they've all-of-a-sudden lost-their-appetite for interest-payments to China, and decided to get "fiscally-conservative"...seeing-as-how someone else is gonna be responsible for their excess!!!

    I guess it's a little late for Lil' Dumbya to remind everyone he's got an MBA. :rolleyes:

    I take it by this you would rather no one get "fiscally conservative" and we just spend into oblivion? That seems to be what you are advocating.

    What I'm suggesting is.....too-often (it seems), "conservatives" get all fiscally-conservative around the time their pockets are packed....and, they wanna make damned-sure no one else gets what's left-over! I guess it's one o' those Divine Rights to which they're entitled.

    Trickle-down is supposed to cover everyone-else.

    This only makes sense if you completely blow off a large element of the Republican party and only focus on the President.
