The next few days should be very interesting.  With the US economy facing serious issues, the two parties and their presidential nominees are scrambling to gain the most political points while attempting to initiate action to solve the crisis.  The problem of course is that there is so much at stake in all of the elections, especially the presidential election, that every decision is being made based upon politics as much as (or more than) what is best for the country.  OK.  So that is just my opinion, but after watching politicians play their games for quite a few years I think that it isn’t far from the truth.

In any case, I really hope these folks can get something done while they scramble to deflect blame and take credit.
