Naomi Klein, The Nation | November 14, 2008
Washington's handling of the Wall Street bailout is incompetent, maybe illegal. ++ The Democrat response is to either defend the Bush administration or refuse to intervene. ++ Bush is violating the conditions of the original bailout, effectively cutting another $140 billion in taxes. ++ Obama's agenda has turned from "change" to "continuity." ++ It would do him and his fellow Democrats good to act quickly, blocking Bush's proposed "amendments" to the bailout despite the possible negative consequences on Wall Street.
