If this is what you call a "wild success", 12th, I don't want to see what you call a failure.
Keep in mind, this was a case of increasing the money supply, giving corporations interest-free loans with said money, profiting on speculation, then giving said paper profit back to the government. Funny how since Obama continued what W started, propping up corporations isn't considered evil anymore...
