Subject: the Wall Street scam
Taking advantage of another horrible strike against
the American working class,
this Pearl Harbor-sized event just conveniently
allows the Republicans to play the fear card again.
The theatrics begin:
The treasury department issues an obviously unacceptable
Both the Democrats and Republicans reacted strongly
against this ridiculous proposal
that only makes sense if it was written with
the intention of getting universal rejection.
This administration had to know they were going
beyond the bounds anyone would accept,
leaving them suddenly standing alone on policy.
Bush essentially took one step backward
from that perfect alignment the administration
and the Republicans projected for all those years.
Without changing position at all it looks like
the Republicans all just stepped forward, volunteering
to stand apart from this President, now firmly
moving toward the side of the working class.
But wait, not to be outdone, our hero, John Wayne,
I mean John McCain, comes charging in
to rally the troops to save the taxpayers from
the evil Presidents plan.
The whole thing is a scam. A manufactured
crisis the Republicans believe will keep them in power.
Believing somehow that in times of crisis the
voter will always vote for leaders that will charge to
our rescue not thinking of consequences.
I'm not accusing anyone of creating the problem
on purpose, but certainly of mismanaging it
and using it to manipulate public opinion to
their favor. Crises work so well for these guys,
that actually preventing problems would take
away all their opportunities.
Where is the motivation in that?
