For all their railing against the evils of big bad banks, Democrats aren't shy about jumping into bed with them when the price is right. And they don't much care whether taxpayers lose out in the process.
And you think they are looking out for YOU?

jesse- IF ALL (or at least the vast majority) of politicians are the same, how would an INDIVIDUAL or even a group counteract that culture? If your cronies do not agree with YOUR plan, and you need their support to effect change, how does change ever happen? It would lead to gridlock, imo. 2 wrongs making a right? NO WAY. 2 wrongs together make 4 wrongs, that's what I am saying. They are guilty, and they all (or vast majority) LIE and misrepresent themselves. THEY make decisions that benefit them; their culture-which has little to do with 'For the good of country". I think lusting for some 'Upstanding Republican" who would have come in and performed so much better and SELFLESSLY is using pie in the sky reasoning.

Are ppl saying that because Obama's platform was change, since it hasn't happened thus far, he is a more duplicitous politician than others or those before him? Did ppl really think this man and his admin was going to fix all that was wrong with this country in Nov 08? Really? Just can not imagine thinking like that-

Carpy- Are you and yours among those ppl? It seems those on the "Right" are the ones MOST bothered. Why are YOU so disappointed ? Did you actually BUY that rhetoric? If not, imo, you'd be much more indifferent! Independence, personally, financially and politically suits our family quite well-
