    Running a country is not the same as running a company. If that needs explaining then start doing some reading.

    Those opposed to it at the time, they all expected the bailout funds to be be lost and additional bailout funds would eventually be required by those companies. Didn't happen. Also, A little thing like averting a financial collapse and the implosion of the worlds economy. Even if we didn't receive another cent back, it was a price well worth paying and only a fool would argue otherwise.

    You are correct, I meant to break that off into another paragraph. However, it all amounts to the same thing, the vast majority who were against the bailout, were against the stimulus.

    uh no. TARP and stimulus were two very different actions. TARP stopped the logjam that was the financial system. The stimulus gave money to bs projects that never worked. Remember when obama said "shovel ready wasn't as shovel ready as we would of hoped".p

    talking economics with a bunch of people who have never had real jobs is like punching yourself in the face.

    Honestly, if that election is anything to go by I really doubt that Romney was the main mover for any of his companies business dealings. He seems to be a just a sign off guy. He came across to me as lacking intelligence to be quite honest.

    Wasn't he born into money? Becoming wealthy is as much luck as it is talent. I went to college with a rich girl who was pretty much as smart as your average Golden Retriever, but she'll never want for anything her entire life...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...
