Another Canned Plan from the Bush Pantry?

According to White House Spokesliar, Tony Fratto, it seems the $700 million taxpayer funded corporate bailout plan, with no accountability and no direct benefit to working-class Americans, may once have been sitting in a can alongside the Iraq War Plan.
Fratto insisted that the plan was not slapped together and had been drawn up as a contingency over previous months and weeks by administration officials. He acknowledged lawmakers were getting only days to peruse it, but he said this should be enough.
How many previous months, Tony? If they knew "months" ago to put together a Bailout plan as a response to financial collapse, why didn't they do anything to head off the financial collapse?

Perhaps it just took them less time to allow a terrorist attack to trigger the Iraq War Plan, which funneled taxpayer money to their defense industry friends, than it did to allow a financial collapse to trigger the Bailout Plan, which will funnel taxpayer money to their banking and finance industry friends!

    I heard there was going to be an October surprise. Do you suppose this is it? What if these companies that we bailed out just took the money and there was no such thing as . . . . Oh I can't even go there.
