Bush Defends Rescue and Praises McCain

By Dan Eggen
President Bush waded at least a little way into the presidential campaign today during remarks at the White House, defending his administration's massive financial rescue plan as benefiting Main Street and offering another endorsement for GOP candidate John McCain.

Bush said the rescue, which will amount to the largest federal intervention in the markets since the Great Depression, was necessary to ensure that the crisis is contained, and appeared to be responding to campaign trail criticism of the plan.

"You know, you hear them talking about Wall Street and Main Street -- well, this is Wall Street plus Main Street, and I'm worried about Main Street. I'm worried about people being able to send their kids to college or to be able to afford their homes," Bush said. "...I said, what's it going to take to make sure Main Street doesn't get affected by the policies of Wall Street? And this is what they came up with, and this is big ticket, because it's a big problem."

Bush's comments came during an appearance with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, who -- along with Bush -- advocates a free-trade agreement between the United States and his country. That deal appears dead in Congress, and Bush disputed a contention, raised by a reporter, that passage of such an agreement might be more likely under Obama than McCain, presumably because of Democratic control of Congress.

"I think the best thing for the country will be the victory of McCain. I'm a big believer in Senator John McCain and his capabilities to do this job," Bush said, adding: "It's very important that we get the trade bill out of politics and into the realm of strategic thought. It's in our strategic interests that we get this bill done."

Bush has said relatively little about the presidential campaign, and McCain has sought to distance himself from the unpopular current president. The two have not appeared in public together since May, and McCain aides have said there are no plans to invite Bush on the campaign trail this fall.

Bush praises McCain...sickening. There was a day when McCain would have bulldozed "W". I remember at a Whitehouse dinner, Bush was making an "a$$" of himself towards Jim Webb (D-Va), Webb called him on it, pushed him aside and went on his way.

John McCain, we knew John McCain...and you are NO John McCain! You are definitely NO Jim Webb.

Probably very difficult to do, but we need to find a way to tie stock prices more to underlying net asset value combined with current earnings, and less to perceived value. By doing so, we could steer the market away from the casino culture of the zero sum game, and realign investment with real productivity while stabilizing valuation for investors.

I'm not going to continue exacerbating this crisis by voting for any one of several John McCains I've seen in the last few years.

I predicted Bush would be the next Herbert Hoover eight years ago, and he is unfortunately proving me right. Obama and Biden are our best hope now.

This weekend I got to catch up on the events of the week and the behavior of the candidates.

Unfortunately this thing will drag on and there will be problems to meet in the coming two years which I hope is not longer than that. In some ways it is worse than I feared and in some wasys it is better.

Obama semed more focused on the long term plans, the ones that he would affect as president. McCain seemed moe focused on the short term on blaming Chistopher Cox and Obama. For the most part Obama focused on the isis and he did not blame McCain who from being in Washington for the past 26 years would have more culpability than Obama. Nothing to me distinguishes the two candidates more than the advisers they chose to navigate these troubled waters. For Obama there is Warren Buffett and Bob Rubin and former Fed Chief Volcker and many other Clinton advisers who were part of the job creation f thier decade.

McCain surrounded himself with Washington lobbyist and the chief promoter of deregulation, Phil Gramm. McCain was an advocate of deregulation and made grandiose statements about deregulation but I never considered him the cause of the idiocy of deregulation but Gramm was at the top of the list.

There is quite a difference in the level of integrity and knowledge between Buffett and Gramm. When there was financial corruption found at General Re a Buffett owned company the stain of wrong during or complicit participation in wrong doing was never attached to Buffett. However Gramm and to a much greater extent his wife was found to be an intricate part of the unethical dealings at Enron and in the area of finance malfeasance his wife was a dominate figure, though I don't think criminal.

Because of Obama's calm nature and the quality of his advisors that contributed to the calm Obama did not make contradictory statements throughout the week where McCain repeatedly did.

The same sense I have about Bush, saying things for political effect and not information, I found in the utterances of Sen McCain, although I can't tell if his actions were dissembling or a reflection of a lack of information and perspective caused by an unqualified economic support team.

Two weeks ago the Republicans and their cohorts have said that there is no funds to secure healthcare for American Families. somehow Bush & Paulson can find $700 billion for Wall Street, but no funds for the Americans caught up in the mortgage scandals or health care for that matter. I am tired of hearing the Republicans speek capitalism when it comes to Wall Streets Profits and socialism when it comes to their self inflicted losses!

Where is Bush anyway these days. Where is he with his policies and his management skills when America needs them? Asleep at the wheel or is he just hiding under Palin's skirt along with Palin herself, McCain and the Republicavemen party. Hoping no one notices them until after the election.

When you are all connected, part of the problem and wanting to keep the policies and strategies and management in place that has caused the trouble in the first place, you need to hide. Keep spouting impossible lies, lies so whopperish that people start to think that there must be some truth because how could anyone lie like that? And they must hope no one notices the truth about the issues that matter.

This is an election that should be on the issues. And if it can't be on the issues, then it needs to be a referendum on McCain who is too old and can't remember what he said from one day to the next, or can't tell truth from fiction or else, more worrisome, he is a liar and he's driving the "Lying with a Straight Face Express".

Oh yeah, Bush 43 has been so quiet, forgot he was the President. Clearly, the idea that America can be the wild wild west and get away with it - no regulation, lax enforcement, cut taxes for the rich, destroy the dollar, destroy wall street, and main street, and the side streets too. I guess he better step up to the plate now when the crisis is going to destroy America's economy and the global economy for the next 8 year.

Of course, he was hoping this economic 9/11 might be held off just a few more months and he could blame McCain, or better yet, Obama.....

I think Bush politicking for McCain from the White House is yet another nail in the coffin of a united United States of America. It seems to me the American President should be neutral. Probably, Bush' endorsement hurts McCain anyway.

Finally to comment on this poster: "Bush has a lot of flaws and I never voted for him. However, after seeing the terrible bombing in Pakistan today, we do have to give him credit for keeping this country safe from bombings like this and other acts of terrorism since 9/11.
We all may be against the war in Iraq, but at least we are fighting terrorism on foreign soil.

Posted by: concerned08 | September 21, 2008 12:06 AM "

You are not too bright. In fact, Bush through his incredible incompetence and small mindedness and view of the world through a win the next election political spectrum, has created more terrorism. It will definitely snake back and hit America in future. The best solution is to vote Obama for a more co-operative, more intelligent approach to terrorism.

If you do not see what Bush has wrought, you need to do some independent, clear eyed and common sense studies of the situation in Iraq (before and after the invasion), Afghanistan, and Iran and you ought to also take a hard look at who is still at large - Bin Laden, the guy that did 911. Not Saddam as many try to say.

Ignorance can be bliss for only so long until reality pulls you out of the Rabbit Hole.

Income disparity is the root cause of the economic crisis. The financial market avarice has killed the middle class goose that laid the golden eggs.
Solution:
1.Return CEO:Worker pay ratio from 500:1 to 20:1 by giving tax credits to companies who keep the pay ratio below 20:1 and levy heavy tax penalties to any person making more than 20 times what their lowest paid employees make. This will make it difficult for executive pay to increase without a corresponding worker pay increase. If workers are paid what they're worth, they won't need predatory loans.
2.Tie government salary increases to minimum wage increases.

He'd Rather Win The Election Than Portray The Truth

John McCain ran an honorable campaign in 2000.

He was beaten due to scurrilous dishonesty.

He's learned the lesson well.

He's hired those who did this to him.

And now, they're doing it again.

McCain has said that he would rather win the war than win the election.

In fact, as we have seen time after time this week, he would apparently rather win the election than convey the truth.

This approach brought us George W. Bush--and the dissembling, the half-truths, and the omissions and distortions to come. And, so, brought us the tragic consequences that have followed for individuals and families across the nation and the world.

As Americans, we often have short memories and powerful impulses. We tend to act on the latter. This is why history can repeat itself.

Remember. Remember how driven by emotion many became last time. By impulse. Without thought. Remember the statements that were made. Remember the realities that followed. Remember.

You can feel what you feel now--anger, aggression, glee, without examination of the underlying truth--for a moment.

You will live with the consequences for years, decades to come--perhaps for the rest of your life.

Remember the thoughts and feelings that preceded these last 8 years.

Remember.

According to the non-partisan FactCheck.org (http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/factchecking_mccain.html), McCain has strained the truth about health care. About small business. About education. About taxes. About corporate welfare. About energy independence. About free trade.

We've seen this before.

We were distracted from the truth in just the same way before.

And we've lived the resulting damage--for the past 8 years.

This is the way we need to change the nation: By realizing what is true, rather than realizing what emotes us for the moment.

Think.

Remember.

And act accordingly for your future.

McCain needs George "Mission Accomplished" Bush's endorsement like a TV reporter doing a live show needs an itchy hemmorrhoid. The best thing that Bush can help McCain now is just to keep his big mouth shut. It is bad enough for McCain to be stuck neck-deep in Bush's mudpit in leading this country into an abyss. Strange how McCain decided on such an inexperienced and belligerent VP with such a striking similarity with Bush in her unblinking absolute certaintude on any issue, even though she knows nothing about anything, apart from moose hunting.

"Fed Closes Silver State Bank. McCain's Son Andrew Resigns"

Andrew K. McCain, a son of Republican presidential nominee John McCain, sat on the boards of Silver State Bank and of its parent, Silver State Bancorp, starting in February but resigned in July citing "personal reasons," corporate filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission show. Andrew McCain also was a member of the bank's audit committee, responsible for oversight of the company's accounting.

After the opening of free trade with China, China has become much richer and US very poor. Now most of the investments in real estate, banking and the corporate infrastructure in this country is made by China. China has a big stake in Bank of America which is the largest bank in the US. If you ask Bush or McBush they will definitely say free market is working. While the stuff we eat, the stuff we drink and all the stuff we use are lead tainted stuff imported from China. The healthcare crisis that is going to happen to the country in the next 20-30 years is something bigger than all these financial mess that happened due to deregulations. Most of the medication coming into the states from China and other third world countries come in unchecked and are fed to the american population. Lack of proper regulation in the FDA approval process plus the lobbying work by foreign countries that go through the office of McCain and others is one threat facing this nation that is far bigger than 9/11.

One thing that can be learned from this crisis is that market risk means exactly that risk. Social Security should not be subjected to the whims of the financial industry. The mutual fund crisis taught me that but now we see that foolishness by risk takers on Wall Street can effect our investments substantially even when we have made sound decisions in what we thought were average or below average risk investments.

Mr McCain should retract his proposal to privatize Social Security now that we have a sample of what happens to stocks when the basic problem was with bonds.
