    There was never a large movement to derail the auto bailouts here, especially among progressives. There were criticisms of their specifics, but that's not the same thing.

    P.S. I was two years young to have been able to help Carter win reelection in '80. We are still paying the price for that 3rd rate actor's being able to lie and charm his way to high office and pretty much destroy much of what had been built up in the 45 years before he became president. Easily the worst president since Hoover--until Bush II.

    A racist psychopath based policy on astrology charts and paranoid delusions.

        There were/are also those who say we shouldn't support Dems. I ignore them. You should too. They are a loud minority of functional trolls.

            Perhaps it's the side one leans towards--and obviously I lean more towards the critics than the apologists--that one finds easiest to tune out when they overreach.
