My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. Jack Layton
Who backed giving the banks billions again?
Centerists, bankers and most of the media.
Oh and the Bush and Obama Administrations if I am not mistaken. But it was these last two that really favored the "no strings" approach. I think I told you that I thought the bankers should have to crawl over broken glass to get the money. Thinking back, I think I was being too kind.
The Bush and Obama administrations, yes.And who were the "anarchists" who didn't want to do it?
We both know who opposed. In the end, I came around to believing it was necessary, but I wanted the bankers to groan under the weight of the conditions attached. Instead they are laughing and are beginning to act like the "Masters of the Universe" again.
