    Obama bails out banks, not little guy

    The big bailout of the banks was by Bush. But, the little guy gets hurt the most if the banks fail. I didn't like Bush, but the bank bailout was necessary. In fact, the treasury is getting most of the money back. The most controversial was AIG. And that was because of the risk of a lot of failing banks that stood to get paid by AIG, including GS and some big foreign banks. And now, AIG is starting to look like they may be able to survive. Pure political bs is the bailout issue. Why do they do it? Because most voters are gullible and stupid.
