  • So what is your point OP?
    Do you want to blame Obama & his cabinet? Both sides took the money from the bailout companies.

  • Watch out Akin you are getting "Attack of the Unenlightened Anon." Before you know it they will use words like "get over it", "we won", and "give him a chance". Rather dull, Predictable! But nonetheless, dull.
