It's easy to call someone drunk when you are the one serving them.
As a native Iowan I am well aware of the legacy of Herbert Hoover. Just imagine, our state can proudly boast of one president, unfortunately his legacy is leading our nation into the great depression.....
Today in Des Moines:
"As even the president said, Wall Street got drunk. Well, he was essentially the bartender in all this and let them do it, so we're paying a price and we'll pay a price for years to come," said Fitzgerald, a six-term Democrat from West Des Moines.
I think its fair to say that Fitzgerald nailed it.
Fitzgerald went on to say:
"Why would a president who was so laissez faire — keep government out of business — why is he asking for $1 trillion to bail out Wall Street? I'm alarmed. We've never had this in the history of our country, and who says $1 trillion is going to work? They don't know," he said. "The taxpayers have to bail out Wall Street. We're becoming a much socialistic country because of it."
