The Democrats, including their standard bearer The Messiah of Obamania, have spent the last few days hammering the Administration (and by association, Sen. McGrampypants) for its failure to stop the freakout currently hitting Wall Street. So what are they gonna do to try to address the current mess?
Why, leave it in the hands of the people they blame for creating it!
Sept. 18 Bloomberg — The Democratic-controlled Congress, acknowledging that it isn’t equipped to lead the way to a solution for the financial crisis and can’t agree on a path to follow, is likely to just get out of the way.
Lawmakers say they are unlikely to take action before, or to delay, their planned adjournments — Sept. 26 for the House of Representatives, a week later for the Senate. While they haven’t ruled out returning after the Nov. 4 elections, they would rather wait until next year unless Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, who are leading efforts to contain the crisis, call for help.

First they ran away when the soaring price of energy was on the front burner, terrified of having to deal with being forced to go on the record about the public’s demand for increasing domestic production. Now, with the recent economic shockwaves reverberating through the population’s mindset, and looking for some leadership from their elected officials, Reid and Pelosi seem ready to once again turn tail and run away rather than grasp this tiger by the tail.
