    I love Schilling, but the gov't should not be in the business of being a venture capitalist unless there are overwhelming circumstances.  I didn't care for bailing out the banks and GM, but understood the befits.  Bailing out a video game compnay I don't understand.

    They didn't bail out Ford who is doing better than Chrysler and GM.

    They should have let GM bankrupt and restructure, they would have downsized and survived.

    The Union pension plans were and still are the problem now backed by the US taxpayers. This problem will erupt once again.

    Look what we have now the policies of GM being dictated by Obama, look at the fiasco known as the Volt. Which no one can afford, which no one bought.

    The Democrats want us all driving clown cars.

    Imagine all the life-long Rhode Islanders who applied for a business loan, say for around 100k or perhaps even 25K, and many were already in business wanting to expand while the others were start-ups.... DENIED. But here you go Schilling here is tens of millions of dollars for your viseo game company.

    First, Timothy Geithner was chosen to be the Treasury Secretary before the 2008 election was decided.  He would have been appointed had McCain won, as well.  Read up on this...it is true.

    Second, there is plenty about Obama's fiscal policies I object to; in particular he has been much too friendly to big business and failing banks for my taste.  But this thread is about whether Curt Schilling, who has always supported right wing positions, including an anti-bailout stance, deserves a taxpayer bailout now that his firm is in financial dire straits.  And whether that is the height of hypocrisy.  To which I say, no and yes, in that order.

    Lastly, there has been a lot of finger pointing (straight from the Republican play-book, by the way) at immoral behavior of the opponent (Democratic politicians) to obfuscate the original point Contrarian was and still is making.  Neither party has the moral high ground on sexual behavior.  And neither ever has.  But I cannot let these Republican examples escape the scrutiny ThatWasMe is so eager to dole out.

    And this list is of the kind of fraud taxpayers should really be concerned about (I appreciate everyone's right to be disgusted by immoral and deviant sexual behavior, but worry when that becomes more important than breaking laws that directly affect the ability to perform the duties they were voted or appointed to perform, and the resulting distrust of government their behavior engenders):

    Scooter Libby -- convicted on four felony counts for outing a CIA operative.
    Duke Cunningham -- former Republican congressman serving 8 years in prison for taking $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors.
    Jack Abramoff -- serving 6 years for taking bribes and passing them onto top Republican congressmen.
    Tom Delay -- Law-maker turned law-breaker forced to resign after being indicted on campaign finance conspiracy charges.
    Claude Allen -- Bush's former top domestic policy adviser, who was caught using fake receipts to "return" $5,000 worth of merchandise to Target (and other stores) he had never purchased.

    If you just want to talk about morally reprehensible people and their hypocritical positions, Gingrich, Limbaugh, Giuliani, O'Reilly, none hold a candle to Jerry Falwell and Tammy Faye Baker's wonderful husband, Jim Baker.  But none of their hypocritical acts and sexual dalliances and immoral positions really affects us as taxpayers.  We should be worrying about the scum bags of government and politicians who do.  And Curt Schilling has now become one.

       Tax expenditures are spending.

      The exclusion of health care premiums from taxable income=spending
      Oil and gas subsidies=spending.
      Earned Income Credit=spending.
      Tax breaks for manufactures=spending.
      Home Mortgage Interest deduction=spending.
      Child tax credit=spending.

      The list could go on and on.

      This country will soon have to decide what our priorities are and what role government should play.

      Subsidizing a video game company to get it to bring jobs, jobs, jobs across state lines with so much money seems to be  ridiculous.

    On the contrary. Absolutely not what it should or could be. We could be powering our economy on domestic energy if not for Obama.

    Almost all the expansion of hydrofracking and the boom of oil and natural gas is is taking place on private lands those that are are on Govt. lands are with permits from the Bush administration.

    It takes about 10 years after a permit is granted for the wells to become productive.

    The Obama administration has pretty much shut down new permits on Government land for new wells of oil and natural gas and permits for off shore oil exploration.

    Although in his speechs Obama claims that the production of natural gas is at it's all time high and oil is booming but this is all inspite of him. Truth be known if it is taking place on Govt. land it's Bushs' fault.

    Obama and his EPA has shut down the developement in domestic energy in three and half years. Coal, Oil and natural gas not to mention the Keystone XL pipe line that would have brought Canadian oil to the US refineries creating an estimated 100, 000 jobs a move that has ticked off his union base.

    This president has basically shut down the domestic energy production in lieu of solar and wind. 

    A few months back Obama said algae was the energy source of the future.

      Pure Fox News drivel.

    The facts are the facts: crude production in the US has increased three straight years.  The Natural gas industries biggest problem is getting a good price to sell their product in glutted market. Obviously President Obama has not shut down the Oil and gas industry.

    The Keystone pipeline will not create anywhere near 100,000 jobs.  Way off base.

       46 million acres of government leases are lying unused and permitting has not stopped.

      Fracking has effected the industry.  Bush did not invent it and Obama has not stopped it.  George W's biggest contribution to the equation was starting a war in Iraq causing crude prices to rise.  High crude prices create incentive to drill.

      Oil companies go where the oil is easiest to get.  Alaska has been declining for many years.  North Dakota and Texas are booming. 

      Gasoline will continue to be exported to the highest bidder.  Oil companies are loyal to their bottom lines not the country. 

      Gasoline prices at the pump soared under George W..  We still have not met the highs reached before the Great Republican Recession.

    Obviously you didn't read the link I provided from the WSJ.

    Yeah domestic oil is surging because of hyfrofracking in N. Dakota and Texas on private lands not on federal lands, both states are booming and their budgets in the black because of it.

    Two bills one in the house another in the senate to provide incentives to get the trucking industry off of foreign oil and converted onto domesticated liquid natural gas have been ignored by obama for three years.

    He was too busy getting 30 million of his constituents on free health care.

    Nice to have opinions but it really helps if you know what you are talking about because you do not.

    What is wrong with you people?

    Yeah production is up but because of the wells on private lands. Permits for gov't lands is at an all time low.

    Far lower than any administration in the past twenty years.

    Any drilling on govt. land being done today is being done because of permits that were given 10 years ago. It takes ten years for a well to come to market.

    Obama has had nothing to do with the current boom.

    Obama is fos and apparently you kool aide drinkers are slugging it down.

    Read the article and link i provided, he has shut down drilling but lies through his teeth when taking credit for today's production, it is going on despite Obama.

      Crude production has surged-period. 

      President Obama is in favor of expanded use of natural gas in trucking.  Congress has done nothing.  Maybe they should put something on his desk.  We're already producing the natural gas.  Obiously you don't know what you're blathering about.

    I'm an independent.

    Obama is for natural gas what has he done in 3 1/2 years to get us off foreign oil and converted onto domestic natural gas?

    Sunk billions into green energy?

    There are 2 bills in congress he has ignored for 3 1/2 years getting the trucking industry onto natural gas.

    He had a democrat house and senate for 2 years he could have pushed it through if he wanted it.

    Jim Cramer (a Democrat) has been talking about it on his CSNBC show for three years ripping Obama for ignoring it.

    In the interest of truth and disclosure, the U.S. Chamber of Congress is one of the largest contributors to the Republican party of any organization in the country, and is one of the main lobbyists preventing Dodd-Frank from being enforced, along with working to prevent the resurrection of Glass-Steagall (having fought so hard during the Clinton years to have it repealed); the one act that ought to be reinstated in order to prevent another bubble and financial collapse (JP Morgan Chase anyone?).
