Sometimes you’re the dog and sometime’s you’re the fireplug

Jonathan here.  The guy in the picture to right is Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Jr.  He’s been putting in a lot of hours lately, and it doesn’t look like his day is going to be done at quitting time.  
With the Dow closing 372 points lower to 11,016, I think it would be safe to say that more people didn’t weigh the bailout’s costs and benefits before they bailed out (sorry) or  maybe there were just more sellers than buyers, but I will bet that very few sellers considered how cheap their stocks were already selling for, but whatever it was or whatever it wasn’t, this guy doesn’t look real happy. 
Thoughts?  Agree with the bailout?  Why?  Disagree with the bailout?  Why?  Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
