Blame Bush

I find it hard to believe Obama could be more disastrous at this point on the auto bailout than George Bush has been.

Jenn Rubin points out that the Senate was very close to a deal on the bailout, but Gettelfinger, the UAW head, refused to any concessions to get a deal.


Because he knew he could get everything he wanted from George Bush if the Senate killed the bailout. It’s great to know the Republican President has become the UAW’s whore.


UPDATE: There is word tonight that Bush may require adherence to the terms of the Corker amendment in exchange for TARP funds. If so, I must retract my “whore” comment. If not, I stand by the comment.
