Politicians are like 4-year-olds.
I’ll explain my reasoning for that in a moment, but I have a feeling many of you already agree.
In 2009, President Obama authorized the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler. It was a move that started with President Bush in 2008 and cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars. Needless to say, the decision generated some serious controversy. I, for one, went on record on this blog as being against the bailouts. At the time, I figured the companies should accept the consequences of their poor financial decisions and dismal product quality. As it turns out, I don’t have a lot of say in Executive Branch decisions, and the bailouts happened regardless of my opinions.
