nah - the O admin has repeatedly made it clear that these were extraordinary times that required extraordinary intervention, & that to allow the collapse of certain industries would have been far more catastrophic than they have been thus far, which has been devastating to many already, of course. their actions & approach have been recommended & supported by literally hundreds of the nation's top economists. most importantly, however, perhaps for folks like yourselves, is the explicitly stated desire by the admin that this was *not* a series of measures they *wanted* to take, & that their explicit desire is to receive payback of loans asap &, here's the clincher: get out altogether as *soon* as possible

as you certainly must know, the motives were to stop the hemorrhaging, not to convert us to a marxist-based political/economic philosophy & system. i think we can all imagine how much worse the consequences would already have been if the US gov't slammed the door shut, buried their head in the sand, & left a sign on the door reading "you're on your own, people"

otherwise, i hafta say some of this russkie's generalizations of american culture are fair enough, unfortunately

he said that (or something similar) when he was a young hothead of about 20+ yrs old or so. who among us wouldn't like a few hundred 'take-backs' from our days at that age? he has publicly acknowledged that it was a cocky, obnoxious thing to say & that he has mellowed, & more importantly, grown up since then

but you knew that already, h-bomb..

While George Bush was accused of lying to us about weapons of mass destruction, Obama now lies to us using weapons of mass distraction.He has the country and the media totally conned while he digs this country into a hole so deep we will not see the light of day for decades to come.

Most respected scholars on the economy agree John Maynard Keynes was 100% WRONG.This country will not come out of the current mess thru bailouts.These phony-baloney bailouts put huge sums of money into the same hands that got us into this fix.Take GM..all the billions spent and they will still file for bankruptcy.George Bush PREDICTED this would happen when he was reluctant to give GM and CHRYSLER any government money last year.Chrysler should have gone into bankruptcy..Daimler tried for 10 years to straighten out that company and finally threw in the towel.What do you think FIAT will do.If those brilliant Germans couldn't fix Chrysler,do you think a bunch of hot-blooded Italians who themselves make lousy cars(Fiat, not Ferrari!)are going to do much better?

the contrition i saw & heard him express was about some comment he made about "slaying the enemy" or somesuch in his younger days; however, you have totally taken his comment out of context for your ideological convenience & left out his simultaneous quote: “What I mean by that is that it’s an opportunity to do things you could not do before. Things we had postponed for too long, that were long term, are now immediate and must be dealt with.â€

a very respectable & commendable point of view, i'd say. cheers!
