Caught between a Rock and a Hard Place of their Own Making.

This is where the U.S. government sits tonight. Whichever way Congress moves on the bail-out or as the spinmeisters are now labeling it ...the rescue package ... the fools on capitol hill will be facing their constituents in a no-win situation.

If they adopt the bail-out package, Congress will be accused of bailing out the Wall street psychopaths and sociopaths while sticking the American public with yet another Ponzi-scheme from the bankers.

If they don't adopt the plan and the credit markets freeze, sending the U.S. economy down the tubes, they will be blamed for that as well.

The fact of the matter is that Congress deserves its ultimate destiny. These pompous, self-serving, do-nothing, fat-cats sat on their collective butts and allowed this financial mess to happen. All of this mess could have been so easily avoided if THEY HAD DONE THEIR JOBS. If they had actually cared one iota about the American public whom they were elected to serve and not destroy!

Even the slightest amount of regulation and oversight could have prevented all of this. But no, the cowboys on the Hill completely and effectively deregulated Wall street allowing all of the corporate gypsies, tramps and thieves to excess America to death.

Tonight the Congress, Bush, Bernanke, Paulson, et al; continue their charades and theatrics. On the one hand Bush, Bernanke and Paulson are stating that a financial Armageddon will happen if the bail-out isn't approved.

On the other hand Congress appears to be balking. They claim that they need more time to deliberate the the implications and ponder alternative plans and modify the current proposal to make it more palatable to voters.

Forget about making your "solutions" more palatable to American's!!!!

Grow a back-bone and do what's right!!!! Quit rolling-over like little puppies every time some financial scum-bag or lobbyist offers you a bone!

If American's are left "holding the bag" for a mess which they didn't create, then every incumbant in Washington should be fired (voted out of office) because they did not do their job and as a result placed every single American in harms way.

Obama and McCain are right. Washington does need a change ... and that change should begin by giving every single politician their walking papers.
