The President has acted boldly. This is the worst financial crisis of our time, and possibly ever. The Government's job is to protect Americans, and this plan will help do that, help stabilize the economy, and put America back on track to health and prosperity. The financials in this country as still sound. The President and his team acted boldly.Nevermind the fact they hate government involvement, hate spending, believe the market should work itself out, and the like. He will leave office, a fiscal conservative, having spent more money and created more debt than any President ever before him. He will have believed so much in "markets" that he would pretend to be a deregulator, having just been in office during poor regulations, not less.
Everything that has taken place during his 8 years has been a complete and utter failure.
Of course, their mantra, as I've mentioned before is "One day we'll look back and realize how bold he was..." Like, when things finally turn up, when the war finally ends, and maybe when environmental problems start to decline (if), they will rejoice and recommend that we put his face on the penny. And we should, because like him, the penny to the common man is worthless.
