I wonder how many millions the CEO will get as a "Benefits package"?

Add me to that list of people you know whose 401(k) is being siphoned. I know one thing, if Bush and his gang of thieves are allowed to walk free America will never be normal again.

This is why we don't need politicians who will fly whichever the polls (or lobbyists) are telling them to.....we need leaders who will do the right thing for our country and its people regardless of party politics, or personal gain.
Something we haven't had in Washington - at any level - for decades.

Well if he wins, don't expect Obama to serve up the "change" he's bragging about during his campaign stump. He learned from the old school masters of corruption in Chicago.

Poor McCain probably wakes up every morning thinking the campaign trail is an extension of combat in Viet Nam. He's so old if elected, he won't live long enough to "change" more than 6 months worth of underwear.

Turn the flame down to a slow simmer. There will be many more stories just like this one in the months ahead.

You better hope mccain lives four years if he is elected...otherwise we will have a Queen Maud situation. She was so unpopular and caused such strife that it was almost 500 years before the english would allow another woman to rule them.

In a way, the worse we are the better the chance of real change has coming about. Maybe we will start getting politicians who aren't in someones pocket, maybe we will start getting politicians who have the good of this nation first and foremost.

My apologies. I misinterpreted your sentence, "WaMu deserves to go out of business" as a present tense statement.
