Do the Republicans believe in free markets, individual responsibility, and keeping the government out of private business? It's been obvious for a long time that this housing/mortgage mess was coming. The time was coming when the wastrels would have to pay the piper. But no, our dimwit in chief will bail them out. We taxpayers can pick up the tab. The responsible folks can just suck it up. I guess Bush knows he only has a very limited time in office and is trying his best to come up with new ways to fuck things up. Gotta work on that legacy thing.
