    Yes, well, he should get up and do his job. He needs to address the nation, even if he has nothing new to say. We need to hear from him and so far, all I hear is silence emanating from the white house.

    'Our entire economy is in danger,' Bush warns

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush, saying "our entire economy is in danger," urged Congress to approve his administration's $700 billion bailout proposal.



    Failure to act quickly on the bailout plan could result in a "long and painful recession," Bush warned.

    "We're in the midst of a serious financial crisis, and the federal government is responding with decisive actions," Bush said in a televised address Wednesday night from the White House.

    Bush pointed out that the collapse of several major lenders was rooted in the subprime mortgage market that thrived over the past decade.
    He said passage of the $700 billion bailout proposal was needed to restore confidence in the market.

    "I'm a strong believer in free enterprise, so my natural instinct is to oppose government intervention," he said. But "these are not normal circumstances. The market is not functioning properly. There has been a widespread loss of confidence.

    "Without immediate action by Congress, America can slip into a major panic."

    If Congress fails to approve the rescue plan, the nation could face a "long and painful recession," Bush said.

    "The plan is big enough to solve a serious problem," Bush said.
    The plan calls for the government to buy from firms up to $700 billion in troubled assets -- mainly mortgage-backed securities -- whose values declined as the housing market imploded. The goal is to stabilize the companies and prompt them to lend again.

    "The government is the only institution patient enough to buy these assets at their current low prices and hold them until their prices return to normal," he said.

    Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned Wednesday that the Wall Street crisis is the worst the nation has faced since the end of World War II and urged Congress to take action on a proposed bailout package.

    Congress is considering whether to allow Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to use federal funds to buy up to $700 billion in mortgage-related securities and other assets that have caused turbulence on Wall Street and have undermined credit markets worldwide.

    But Paulson and Bernanke faced deeply skeptical lawmakers, including members of Bush's own party, when they pitched the plan before congressional committees Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The White House had been taken a mostly hard line during the negotiations with Congress, but it is signaling a new spirit of cooperation that suggests the administration realizes the situation is so serious that it will have to compromise in order to get something done.

    "This is not take-it-or-leave-it," a senior administration official said earlier Wednesday. "We'll accept changes."

    The senior administration official said the president has been contemplating a prime-time speech for several weeks but finally decided to deliver it tonight because he believes that the situation has reached crisis stage.

    "This is a bullet you only fire once," the senior official said. "We have reached a point in the process where we just have to get action."

    WASHINGTON - President Bush warned Tuesday that failing to pass a financial rescue plan would bring severe consequences to the U.S. economy. "Congress must act," he declared in an appeal that John McCain and Barack Obama echoed.

    McCain and Obama separately urged Congress to redouble efforts to get a deal through and both proposed increasing federal deposit insurance to $250,000, as a key part of it. Both McCain and Obama called and spoke to the president on Tuesday, a White House official said.

    In brief remarks at the White House, Bush warned that, "if our nation continues on this course, the economic damage will be painful and lasting."

    He said his administration would work with congressional leaders to get the defeated $700 billion relief package back on track. The House voted 228-205 Monday against the bill designed to stabilize a reeling financial system. That triggered the biggest one-day sell-off on Wall Street since the 2001 attacks, as the Dow Jones industrial plummeted by 778 points.

    Both McCain and Obama called on lawmakers in their parties to stay at work until an acceptable plan is assembled.

    Bush noted that the maximum $700 billion in the proposed bailout was huge, but was dwarfed by the $1 trillion in lost wealth that resulted from Monday's stock-market plunge.

    "Because the government would be purchasing troubled assets and selling them once the market recovers," he said, "it is likely that many of the assets would go up in value over time. Ultimately, we expect that much - if not all - of the tax dollars we invest will be paid back."

    The rescue package and the nation's faltering economy was also Topic A on the presidential campaign trail as both Republican McCain and Democrat Obama addressed the subject, advocating that the federal insurance on deposits, savings accounts and bank certificates of deposit be increased from the present $100,000 to $250,000.

    "The first thing I would do is say, 'Let's not call it a bailout. Let's call it a rescue," McCain told CNN. The Arizona Republican said that "Americans are frightened right now" and it is the job of political leaders to give them both an immediate solution and a longer-term approach to the problem.

    McCain announced a brief suspension of his campaign last week to return to Washington and become involved in negotiations on the bailout but would not say whether he was contemplating that again. "I will do whatever is necessary" to help, he said.

    Top congressional and White House officials were stunned when the House rejected the massive rescue plan, and a host of lawmakers said Tuesday they thought Congress should persevere in its attempt to find a political consensus.

    Obama issued a statement Tuesday saying lawmakers should not start from scratch as they weigh their next move.

    The Illinois senator said that significantly increasing federal deposit insurance would help small businesses and make the U.S. banking system more secure as well as restore public confidence in the nation's financial system.

    White House spokesman Tony Fratto said that McCain and Obama each called and spoke to the president on the crisis. "Both calls were very constructive, and the president appreciated hearing from them," he said.

    Fratto said both senators offered ideas and agreed the crisis was a critical one that needed to be addressed. "We appreciate hearing them and will continue to work with congressional leaders on ideas that will help the economy," Fratto said.

    In his comments from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House, Bush pointed to Monday's drop in the Dow Jones industrials.

    "The dramatic drop in the stock market that we saw yesterday will have a direct impact on retirement accounts, pension funds and personal savings of millions of our citizens," he said. "And if our nation continues on this course, the economic damage will be painful and lasting."

    He said he was disappointed by Monday's House vote but that "this is not the end of the legislative process."

    "I recognize this is a difficult vote for members of Congress," Bush said. "And I understand that. But the reality is we are in an urgent situation and the consequences will grow worse each day if we do not act."

    He said this was a critical moment for the U.S. economy. "And we need legislation that decisively addresses the troubled assets now clogging the financial system, helps lenders resume the flow of credit to consumers and businesses, and allows the American economy to get moving again."

    Earlier, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said "doing nothing is not an option" as lawmakers scrambled to structure a new bailout proposal that would attract reluctant lawmakers and still soothe the unnerved financial markets.

    With the House not scheduled to meet again until Thursday, congressional leaders and administration officials promptly sought to assess what types of changes could win over enough votes to guarantee success.

    Obama said Tuesday that lawmakers should not start from scratch as they weigh their next move.

    The bill's failure came despite furious personal lobbying by Bush and support from House leaders of both parties. But the legislation was highly unpopular with the public, ideological groups on the left and the right organized against it, and Bush no longer wielded the influence to leverage tough votes. Even pressure in favor of the bill from some of the biggest special interests in Washington, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Realtors, could not sway enough votes.

    The legislation the administration promoted would have allowed the government to buy bad mortgages and other deficient assets held by troubled financial institutions. If successful, advocates of the plan believed it would have helped lift a major weight off the already sputtering national economy.

    Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson emerged after the vote and warned of a credit crunch that would affect American businesses and said families would find it harder to get student loans and car loans.

    "We need to work as quickly as possible," he said gravely. "We need to get something done."

    This has me all messed up before I've even had coffee. If only that had been a 'real' movie... and if only it had happened sometime before the (s)election in 2000.

    I have known that my Cousin has worked in the Whitehouse as a speech writer for the President for a few years. I recently found out that my Cousin is now a direct assistant to the President of the United States for Homeland Security, I thought that was pretty crazy.

    If I could get to WashingtonDC in the next month or so (before the end of this administration) I would be able to take a private tour of the west wing from my cousin directly, what a trip that would be.

    'Impaler' pledges to impale Bush

    The American Secret Service have launched an investigation into one of the candidates for the presidency in 2008 ‚?? after he pledged that as President, one of his first acts would be to impale President George W. Bush.

    The candidate in question is Jonathon 'The Impaler' Sharkey, and he is running as the only self-described satanic vampire candidate who has so far entered the 2008 race.

    Sharkey's pledge to impale President Bush, he makes clear, will only come into effect if he is actually elected to office.

    But that has still triggered action by the Secret Service, who say they have a duty to investigate any threats against the president. Sharkey, 42, says that agents from the service visited him at home with his 19-year-old wife, Spree, to investigate his impaling pledge.

    Sharkey told The Columbia Chronicle about the visit: 'They were telling me, when they were interrogating me, that their job was to protect Bush even after he's out of office. I'm looking at them like, ‚??Oh, you're going to defy me when I become president?‚?Ě'

    Sharkey previously ran for President in 2004, and has run for Congress several time, occasionally as a Republican.

    Darrin Blackford, a spokesman for the Secret Service, disagreed that the investigation was an over-reaction: 'Unfortunately, in our line of work, we can't take that chance.'

    But a legal expert is unsure if a case could be made against The Impaler. 'Under the First Amendment, what it boils down to here is whether or not he's a vampire who wants to impale the president,' law professor Neil Richards of Washington University in St. Louis told the Chronicle.

    'I guess the question is, if he's a vampire, why is he the one staking people? Shouldn't he want to bite the president and feed on him?' added Richards, describing these questions as 'perhaps further evidence that this is not a true threat.'

    Sharkey, meanwhile, seems unconcerned about the investigation. If anything, he feels that the Secret Service may not be taking him seriously enough.

    'They never even asked to see my impaling stick,' he complained.
