SEC Speaks

By |September 30th, 2008|

From Frank Ahrens we learn the SEC has just made a rather important announcement that could mean something to the markets. The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Accounting Standards Board have [...]

ECONOMY: Over 2 to 1, Americans Blame Republicans for Crisis

By |September 30th, 2008|

BY TAYLOR MARSH This is so obvious. John McCain just can't get his party to follow his lead. McCain told CNN this morning that in spite of fierce opposition to the bailout, "I'm glad to stay at it. That's what my job is, I believe, as an American, not as a candidate for president." McCain [...]

John Chaperones Sarah

By |September 30th, 2008|

Oh dad, geez. Let me do this one on my own. (...or would that be grandpa?) He even interrupts to save Sarah from "gotcha" journalist Katie Couric. That's a new job qualification for president. Babysitting your vice presidential nominee so she doesn't step in it. Again. Recently I wrote about John McCain's naked sexism, how [...]

By |September 29th, 2008|

Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic Monthly posted it early today. The URL says it all: Sarah Palin's Terrifying Ignorance. It's yet another edition of American politicians' favorite [...]

McCain Failed to Lead

By |September 29th, 2008|

BY TAYLOR MARSH --updated-- Ambinder has the quote that kills: I put my campaign on hold for a couple days last week to fight for a rescue plan that put you and your economic security first. I fought for a plan that protected taxpayers, homeowners, consumers and small business owners. I went to Washington last [...]

Bailout Goes Bust in the House

By |September 29th, 2008|

BY TAYLOR MARSH VOTE FAILS: 228 NO to 205 yes This morning I did an interview with the Washington Times about the current bailout that just failed in the House.
