You know the Republicans and the Bush administration are up sh*t creek without a paddle when ultra-right wing hack Michelle Malkin screams bloody murder about the current bailout plan:
Both parties in Washington are about to screw us over on an unprecedented scale. They are threatening us with fiscal apocalypse if we don’t fork over $700 billion to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and allow him to dole it out to whomever he chooses in whatever amount he chooses — without public input or recourse. They are rushing like mad to cram this Mother of All Bailouts down our throats in the next 72-96 hours. And right there in the text of the proposal is this naked power grab: “Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.”
My question for fellow conservatives: Do you trust this man?
Do you trust Hank Paulson’s judgment?
