    If we're going to be 'reality based' then your list needs some amending...

    Imagine that a President inherits the $700 billion TARP program he voted for.

    Imagine that a President inherits a $7.4 $7.76 trillion pledge to Wall Street.

    Imagine that a President inherits a $306 billion acquisition of toxic mortgage securities above and beyond the TARP program.

    Imagine that a President inherits a $200 billion commitment to credit card companies.

    Imagine that a President inherits a $600 billion commitment to buy toxic mortgage securities above and beyond the TARP program.

    Imagine that a President gets his proposed $700 billion stimulus, on top of the $700 billion TARP, the $7.4 trillion pledge, the $200 billion to credit card companies, the $600 billion in buying toxic assets, the $306 billion to buy more toxic assets.

    Imagine all that, and what money is left for all the other things we are supposed to imagine?

    The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. - H.L. Mencken
