Again, I'm not a huge fan of bailing these ******'s out. However, I'm smart enough to know when to shut up and listen. And if the leading economists were freaking out saying it would be the end of humanity as we know it, then I'm probably going to listen. Again, one of those things, we'll never know what would have happened if we did nothing. If you can't admit that, we don't really need to go any further. As far as 77% of Americans go.....whew....were do we start? 77% of Americans can't find Europe on a map. Let along the first thing about an economic crisis. Do you really think we should listen to them? Or do you think we should listen to the experts in the field? I know who I want my President to listen to. Experts. Why don't we listen to kids when they say they don't want to go to school? I'm sure 77% would vote against going to class. What about speed limits? You think we could get enough people to vote them down too? I do. What about taxes? You think 77% of people would approve a bill that said from now on, there are no more taxes? At some point you have to not listen to the people, no matter how unpopular it is. Just ask George Bush. He did it regularly.
