How can these Republicans defend Henry Paulson and the George W. Bush administration’s handling of the beginning of the stimulus with their three-page plan to give their friends $350 billion without any restrictions? And how can they blame President Obama for those thieving traders at AIG receiving bonuses that were the norm for the deregulated financial sector during the last administration and started during the Reagan/George H.W. Bush administration? This delusion is outrageous.
Cheney pulled off a caper just like Enron before the administration left office. They started this way with Enron, Sempra, and El Paso Corporation and they end their term with Paulson’s three-page plan on lined paper written in crayon with no restriction at all. The Republicans have no plan and their only talent is to look for someone to hate and blame. Investigations for fraud and war crimes are in order for Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al.
