With those three, we get pretty much what you expect (not that you or I want it). Bush has become one of my less favorite politicians because I expected someone who would endorse at least some libertarian values, but has turned out to be a liberal in sheeps clothing. The same goes for Arnold.

Dubya and Cheney are far and away my least favorite but a few of the others are:
  • Pelosi (not because she's a woman; I just don't like her)
  • Boxer (not because she's a woman; I just don't like her)
  • Hillary (not because she's a woman; I just don't like her)
  • and uh, Antonio uh, Villa uh, rai uh, gosa.

1. Barbara Boxer
2. George W. Bush


Boxer, unlike Feinstein, does nothing for the state of California. Onlly through the ineptitude of the California Republican Party has she managed to stay in office.

Bush has simply been the worst President of my lifetime whose mistakes are so numerous as to be a waste of time to list now.

Have you forgotten Ted Kennedy, or are you just being charitable today? :mrgreen:

Although he would be on my list, i won't go there. The reasons are obvious as he is fighting the biggest battle he ever fought.

NanciPelosiandHarryReid (names have to be slurred together to indicate disdain)

BillandHillary (hard to figure which is more onerous)

Ted Kennedy (who is only now starting to reap the consequences of a life HORRIBLY misspent)

Barney Frank (when he pretends he knows what he's talking about ... other than that, he's a non-entity)

Barak Obama (he's lied to me and he continues to lie to a lot of others, even today)

John McCain (ibid)

CAVEAT: The suggestion there are "least" favorite politicians has to stipulate that there is any such thing as a "favorite" politician. Since I believe the definition of a politician precludes me from having a favorite, I can't really spend all the time to list every politician as a least favorite.

A friend in some of the other communities I haunt is committed to tracking (and getting others to track) our elected representatives who vote FOR this bailout plan.

Those congressmen (et al) who support a bailout are CLEARLY not listening to their constituents who are, the way I hear it, running 80% against a bailout and at several points throughout the weekend, shut the government's e-mail servers down with all their messages to their elected representatives.

His point is we should keep track of who votes for it and, then, vote THOSE folks out in our own version of a proletariat revolution.

He makes a lot of sense but for me, that means only tracking Dick Durbin, because my Representative, Jerry Weller, won't return to congress and my other senator is Barak Hussein Obama, who has never and will never get my vote for anything.

So, Dick Durbin, I'M WATCHING YOU!

But how many in that 80% know the first thing about finance or economics? Up until about a week ago, most people thought this whole thing was about keeping deadbeats in their houses, so I have to wonder what their opinions are based on.

Not that I have any idea if this thing will work, but it seems to be the best option I've heard. The stock market doesn't seem to be too happy, though. :shock:

I'll grant you, a good portion of that 80% is parroting the opinion of someone else and, hopefully, someone they can trust with economic insights. But that 80% of Americans can agree on ANYTHING is something worthy of note (well, I guess, by anyone OTHER than a congressman).

The "first" vote in the House just went down to defeat. 205 Yea votes and the democrats are saying there is no point in doing another vote as there is no chance this one will pass. While that is good news, I find it a tad disheartening that only 135 Republicans, the one independent, and 94 Democrats were actually listening to the 80%.

As to the markets, it is my opinion that they WILL suffer for awhile if we don't bail out the big investment bankers. it's the market's way of punishing us for not bailing them out. But the market, though fickle, is essentially a sound instrument and it will recover...and grow. It has tanked on MUCH LESS substantial news than this and it will continue to.

Leave the market alone (both the stock market and the marketplace). Survival of the fittest: Make bad decisions, get devoured and the market returns to equilibrium ...
