"In May 2008, The Wall Street Journal wrote that Paulson said U.S. financial markets are emerging from the credit crunch that many economists believe has pushed the country to the brink of recession. "I do believe that the worst is likely to be behind us," Paulson told the newspaper in an interview.[24]
On July 20, 2008, after the failure of Indymac Bank, Paulson reassured the public by saying,“it's a safe banking system, a sound banking system. Our regulators are on top of it. This is a very manageable situation.”[25]
On August 10, 2008, Secretary Paulson told NBC’s Meet the Press that he had no plans to inject any capital into Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.[26] On September 7, 2008, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went into conservatorship.[27]"
[edit]
Paulson "we had no choice"
This guy lied about his own lies and said we had no choice-lol! only in ameriscum

Hmmm, I wonder what the senior eBay executives call all the trusting eBay users that they knowingly and calculatedly facilitate the defrauding of?

Regrettably, shill bidding fraud is endemic on most nominal-start auctions by professional sellers on eBay, and eBay Inc. is demonstrably the greatest knowing and calculated facilitator of such fraud on consumers that the world is ever likely to know, and I expect there will be a trickle down effect of such behaviour to all other eBay operations ...

eBay's fundamental fraud on its consumers

The fundamental fraud on consumers by eBay is eBay's demonstrably false claim to have “sophisticated and proactive” systems in place to control shill bidding fraud. Clearly, eBay has no such systems in place, and such a claim is therefore a "false representation for the purpose of making a gain” and that is effectively a criminal fraud on eBay users, a deliberate and outrageous deception on eBay’s great many trusting users, leading those users to believe that the warm woolly coats on their backs are safe when, in fact, eBay is leading them into the shearing shed where eBay’s wolves are laying in wait. Indeed, eBay has been tacitly aiding and abetting, and effectively encouraging such criminal activity since the year dot, and particularly so since Johnny Ho introduced additional anonymity for bidding IDs in 2008, for no other reason than to further obscure shill bidding fraud from which eBay profits handsomely … http://bit.ly/11F2eas
