25. Quite an article!

I wasnít paying close attention back then. I had no idea that Obama and McCain were part of the planning on the stimulus and that they were fighting Republicans arguing for more deregulation. Iím trying to imagine Trump bringing a bipartisan meeting together under similar circumstances. We are in big trouble if this keeps developing. Is it possible that McConnell might actually swallow his hubris and try to bring in saner heads if the economy is on the line? Am I crazy for even posing the question?

But even if they did come to their senses a bit, as others have mentioned, it doesnít seem like we have any maneuvering room with interest rates so low and the deficit so high.

Part of me has been half hoping for the economy to take a downturn just to unravel support for these clowns. But the other part of me knew that was wishing for a lot of suffering. And now I realize I had no idea how relatively well Republicans and Democrats coalesced together to minimize the damage in 2008.

Wow. We are truly in a precarious position.
