I was watching the president’s address regarding the economic bailout, and… OK, I was actually watching The Daily Show make fun of the president’s address regarding the economic bailout.
As I watched the president enumerate the possible dangers of the economic situation, I was skeptical. Was it really as potentially bad as the president said? Or was it another one of President Von Stretch-the-Truth’s exaggerations?
Turns out I’m not alone. Many lawmakers, economists, and citizens are skeptical of the “dire situation” claims. And it’s no wonder. We’ve been sold a bad lot of goods time and time again by George W. Bush and Co. I don’t believe a word that comes out of the man’s mouth.
So, is it as bad for the average American as said? Will Congress fix the debacle? And more importantly, should I start stocking up on Top Ramen?
