A person’s behavior during the time of a crisis, is often largely a reflection of their true character and motivations. Remembering the actions of politicians during the recent legislative attempts to address the bailout crisis during the first go round, well reflects the selfish motivations of some Democrats. Their own political careers. This was first addressed in an earlier post, and bears revisit.
Congressional leadership via Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, failed to sway fellow Democrats on bailout legislation. Could there be any hope to sway the Republicans, if the Democrats were unable to come together themselves?
