Who says Obama doesn't look like the guys on the dollar bills? Slap on a wig and he looks just like Thomas Jefferson.
So the bailout misadventure continues. This time it's speaker of the house, Madame Pelosi, who's out there brandishing the bailout bucket. Some questions: What will we ultimately accomplish with all these bailouts? Where does this stop? When do I get my bailout? If EVERYBODY gets a bailout, doesn't that take us right back to square one?
Thinking about this reminds me of what Wintston Churchill said: "We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." The same concept applies to government bailouts.
