What rock has Naomi Klein been hiding under? Everybody could see Fannie Mae would eventually go bust the past ten years--and just how many of The Nation's supposedly "liberal" readership made a bit a cash on the side flipping houses, all thanks to the scam Klein defines as "looting of public assets"?
I'm sorry, but the corruption was widespread, and the money has already been lost--if the Treasury didn't step in to buy up all those toxic assets, market confidence would have been that much worse off, and collectively we'd have been even worse off.
I blame Klein and The Nation's readership just as much the Bush "gang" or "cabal" or whatever other derogatory term you wish to define them by. Liberals should have removed their heads out of their behinds years ago and stopped worrying about human rights in Africa or saving the whales down near Antarctica. They should have focused their concerns closer to home and more realistically so that now the Bush Cabal wouldn't be running away with all the trophies and all the loot.
I say good on Bush for sticking it to the soft-headed liberals. They thought they were so intelligent and "empowered," they could change the world--they would have been better ensuring their own house was in order, because in the end, they've lost everything by trying to do too much.
