Bush bails out the Automakers

You know the Auto Bailout. You know, the one that Congress - the only body entrusted with the power to make law and spend money - turned down a week or so go? Well, the Executive Branch - you know the body entrusted to enforce law and protect the citizenry from foreign threats but NOT make law - has put it into practice by tapping the Wall Street Bailout fund. Anyone want to speculate now as to why the Treasury Department refuses to say who got loans from this fun? My guess: it was used to bail out only a few banks, but make loans to all other parts of the economy that taxpayers would be furious about.

Here's hoping SOMEONE in the next 4 to 8 years can restore a Constitutional government in the USA. Because the way things are being run right now, the cart is definitely before the horse.
