The economy shrank last quarter? Really? So now Paulson wants to bailout the credit card companies. I have serious doubts that is going to get the economy back on track. One thing I will be looking forward to on January 20th - getting rid of this man. I am starting to LOATHE him. Ad great. Putin and Chavez sittin' in a tree... I would feel a lot safer if they were doing it in Russia's hemisphere.
