had several distinctly different positions that are in complete
conflict with each other philosophically in any rational thought
pattern. I couldn't even begin to follow his logic.
First he was upset by the entire idea of bailing out any corporations.
A total waste of our hard earned tax dollars to give our money to
these failing companies. (Nevermind that it was Bush's financial
disasterous ideas in the first place that first got us here, then did
a crappy job of bailing them out in the first round as if he was
leaving office in a few months and couldn't be bothered to do it
Then he was upset that Obama is even attempting to finish doling out
the money Bush got but gave to him to dole out.
Then he was upset that after Wall Street totally ticked off the
American public by continuing to misappropriate the money, Obama
wanted to add at least the minimum amount of strings to them getting
Finally he was totally upset that Obama had the nerve to tell the auto
industry to clean up its act before he'd give them OUR money. This is
the strangest argument the GOP has ever made...
I know it all makes so little sense I'm hoping I'm misunderstanding him...
These are TAX PAYER Dollars!!!
If the big corporations don't like being pushed around by the Federal
government when they are looking for a handout, they have two other
choices. Fix the problem themselves or file for bankruptcy.
When I was a teenager and went to my dad for $20, I learned really
quickly that dad wanted to know what I was going to use his hard
earned money for... If I didn't want to have to answer that question
and bring back the receipts or justify the really cool off the
shoulder 80's sweater I HAD to have there was another way to get it.
Get myself a job and earn my OWN money. Which is exactly what I did!
Dad was quick to give me bus fare to get to my job. ;)
These whiny CEO's need to learn that if they need daddy's money, he
wants to know how they're going to spend it.
If they don't want to be accountable to daddy, then they need to NOT
RUN THEIR COMPANIES into the ground!
These spoiled children have never had a daddy who taught them the core
American values of work hard, save money, reinvest to make more money
(including making sure your employees can buy your cars), and only
take a salary from the PROFIT that is left over after all the bills
Obama is teaching them that hard work pays, gambling and partying
costs, and daddy is only going to pay the bus fare to get them back to
work. Sounds like conservative values to me...
The GOP is scarily grasping for straws for any reason, no matter how
inane, to have a reason to exist after their grand plan has failed so
Help me out here. What am I missing?
