Bailout Bill Passes House

Sphere: Related Content

Nothing like some sweet, savory pork to get the Dems to go along. Well, that and the game changing, guiding hand of The Messiah:

Some Democrats are touting calls from Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) as an explanation for why they are switching their votes to support the financial recovery package the House will consider Friday.

The announcements by at least seven Democrats that said Obama had helped sway them suggest the bill could pass without significant additional Republican support.

The Democrats — most of them freshmen — held a press conference during the floor debate on the $700 billion Wall Street bailout to announce that they were switching their “no” votes to yes.
So, just like that we've nationalized damn near an entire industry.

What have we done?

Update: McCain has been about as bad on this issue as he was on immigration. He's lost a good many Conservatives he managed to gain back with his shameful stand on the bailout bill. He had the chance to pound the Dems repeatedly and say "no, we will not go against the basics of free market economics" but he chose to punt.

The NRCC has a new ad--What Just Happened:

We, as Conservatives have hurt ourselves badly. Perhaps the current brand of Conservative lite will be seen for what it is: Democrat lite.

But, but, but it was the GOP who were the bad guys the last time they voted for not passing it. Now they will be bad guys becaue they did? Interesting logic there.
