So I was thinking about the auto bailout…

…and I’ve come to the conclusion that if the Big Three don’t get bailed out by the White House and do end up in bankruptcy, resulting in our economy slipping into a full-fledged depression, the GOP will have dug themselves a hole that they’ll spend a generation or more digging themselves out of. After all, they’ll shoulder much of the blame if the Big Three fail and the economy slips into a depression, and I can see Democrats using the refusal of some Republicans to vote in favor of the bailout as fodder for more than a few campaign ads.

Personally, I’d much rather have seen Republican senators vote in favor of a bailout for the Big Three, but from a purely political standpoint, their votes against the bailout will certainly serve a valuable political purpose if our nation ends up in another depression as a result.
