    Explain why she couldn't get 10-13 or the 90 ODD DEMOCRATS that voted against this to change THEIR votes?

    What was the strategy behind that?

    Or is she just such a worthless leader that she can't command that kind of loyalty from her own party?

    Pelosi screwed the pooch with that statement. As was stated, she was partisan when she needed to be bipartisan. It was a mistake.

    I really don't know if many or any actual votes changed because of the statement, but the statement itself was a mistake because it is now a focus of discussion. A seasoned pol should know better.

    That much is clear.

    BULLSHIT. This was a DIRECT result of the Democrats REQUIRING that these bad loans be made, screaming racism when they weren't and then SUING the "offenders" who dragged their feet on issuing these bad loans.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    The Dow ended off 777. How ironic? Somebody pulled the lever and the numbers 7-7-7 came up (down). It must have been a real shock when the lights started flashing, the bells started ringing, people started screaming, but no jackpot started pouring out.

    You're mistaken, as usual

    On October 19, 1987, it fell by more than 22 percent.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    A DUmmy dem guy was defending her by saying that they were assured a 50-50 vote! They will not stick thier neck out politically!

    I heard on one of the cable news channels tonight that it was the biggest drop in history. Perhaps they are simply talking number of points, rather than percentage. Obviously, that would make a difference.

    People. This was a bill initiated by a Republican president. It would seem that the Republicans should take responsibility for at least half of its passage (I know that's an oxymoron, "Republicans" and "responsibility"). I mean, after all, McCain suspended his campaign to ensure it would pass, didn't he?
