I might scream if I read one more right-wing rant about “Obama’s power grab.”  One can argue whether what Obama/Geithner are doing constitutes government action, although it was government inaction and lack of oversight that led to the economic mess.  But where were the crybabies when BushCo did its eight-year-long power grab?  Why did those who accuse Obama of overreaching support the Patriot Act?  Why did they support an illegal and immoral war?  Where were they on warrant-less wiretapping?

The Pittsburgh Tribune writes:


The free market thrives when private companies are allowed to succeed and, yes, fail, by their own hand. Congress’ response to the Obama administration’s power grab must be resounding: “NO!”

We’ve seen what happens when the market is left to its own greedy devices.  And we’d be in much better shape if Congress had stood up to say “NO!” to BushCo.
