The Dems cut and run. And those Senators and Reps have been around a long time, seen much, and were elected to handle things. I mean, look at Teddy Kennedy, been there 43 years. Robert Byrd, senator for 49 years, and third in line to the Presidency. And Obama, the Democrat now running for President who has been in the Senate just three years wants to lead us all. They are cutting and running. John McCain didn't cut and run. Even when he had the option. Hmmm.
Democratic Congress May Adjourn, Leave Crisis to Fed, Treasury
"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."
"One reason, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said yesterday, is that ``no one knows what to do'' at the moment."
