RULE ONE--NEVER ADOPT A CRISIS AS YOUR OWN:

Pelosi Gives Thumbs Down to Bailout Proposal (The Page, 9/21/08)

While saying that circumstances required decisive action and a bipartisan solution, because "your jobs, your savings, your economic security, your house" are at risk, the senator did not offer his explicit support for a plan that his campaign says he is still reviewing closely.


Financial markets across the globe rocketed upwards on news of the Bush/Paulson plan, so Democrats think there's political hay to be made in opposing this surge too? They're handing Republicans the blank check to beat them over the head with.
