Umm... He announced a bailout for subprime borrowers - but only the ones with good credit historys. Who would that be?

Let's see - he is planning on helping roughly 80 thousand out of the roughly 2 million people expected to go to foreclosure, and this depends on Congress actually acting on his words, which means maybe by the time Bush leaves office there will actually be legislation on the table....I don't see this really helping things at all...

you guys are underestimating bush and his "team", i'm kind of happy with high gas prices, iraq, china kicking our butt, the democrats winning back the senate and house, and a weak dollar... that is why i voted for him twice!

Hey, many of these CEOs / alpha guys have got an eccentric hobby. Larry Ellison likes to fly in a military jet, John Mackey posts on message boards and Mozilo, ...well he likes to have a nice tan...

I am one of those people who cannot afford a house because of the inflated market in the Washington D.C. area.  I didn't want to take the risk of an exotic loan.  If the government bails out these people who took a bad risk and lost, then maybe I should go out and buy a Lamborghini that I cant afford and when the bill comes in I should just forward it to congress!

Seth, how about reformulating your Number 1? I wanted to cast my vote, but then I realized that I have trouble applying the adjectives "poor" and "huddled" to someone who just got an expensive house for free from the congress. In my broken English, I would call that "clever".

jimlamp31, that's precisely the idea :)
