Morning Newsdome: George W. Bush says the TARP bailout "wasn't that hard" of a decision

Posted By on Thu, Oct 21, 2010 at 10:52 AM

>> As fellow Republicans decry the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) bailouts just weeks before the midterm elections, which is expected to cost taxpayers about $51 billion, former President Georgia W. Bush said, "It wasn't that hard for me, just so you know," of the decision to go through with the 2008 bailout. "I made the decision to use your money to prevent the collapse from happening." He must be a socialist! And he probably isn't even an American citizen! (the Hill)

>> Glenn Beck on his radio show yesterday about evolution: "I don't think we came from monkeys...that's ridiculous. I haven't seen the half-monkey half-person yet ... Did all of a sudden just, there's no other species that is developing into half-human?" I'm no scientist, but I don't think evolution works that way, Glenn, except in your case. (Little Green Footballs)

>> Mass protests have occurred across France after the government has proposed to raise the retirement age by two years, to 62. Many of the millions of protesters, some rioting, are actually young people. The French already get six weeks of vacation, don't work on Sundays, and have to work just 30 hours a week. What more do these spoiled people want!? God I'm jealous. (Voice of America)

>> After years of Russia denying gay citizens to hold demonstrations because it would cause "a violent reaction in the country," the European Court of Human Rights fined Russia today for banning gay pride parades. Big Mama Russia just added some rainbow to her red. (the New York Times)

>> And finally: Yonni Barrios, the Chilean miner who had both his wife and mistress waiting for him above ground while being trapped, has been offered $100,000 to become the new face of AshleyMadison.com's pro-cheating campaign. Does it involve going half a mile underground? With lots of men? No? I'll take it! (NY Daily Post)
