Thought Of The Day: Why They’re Really Hurrying On The Bailout Plan

by John Hawkins | September 26, 2008 8:58 am

I was talking to one of my sources yesterday and told him that the reaction to the bailout deal reminded me of the very early stages of the immigration debacle, before people became completely infuriated — except, this time the anger is on the Right AND the Left.

Every single day since this lousy deal has been announced, the general reaction I’ve seen has gotten more negative, with more and more people speaking out against it. This bill is going to be absolute political poison by the time it’s done and if you want to know why they’re hurrying so fast to “get something done,” I think it has as much to do with the fact that they realize that the political window is closing fast and they want to get it done before the public really figures out what’s going on and gets very, very angry.
