141 plus 66 does not get you to 218!
No one did! The Dems, the majority party, want no part of governing. Govern? Not this bunch!
P.S. Where is Barrack Obama? He could call on his party, the same one that has a congressional majority, and tell them to pass this proposal. They have 230 of the necessary 218 votes!
Obama could show some leadership and tell his party to stop reading polls and vote for the bailout. Of course, this is the same Obama who sat in Rev. Wright's church but did not hear anything for 20 years!

Wonder why these guys are at such low approval? The RCP average is 18%!
In other words, the Dem majority can't govern.
On this bailout, the Dems exercised zero leadership. They had the votes but were afraid to put anything down on paper.

The regular season is over for the Rangers. They lost their last game.
They finished second but 20 games behind the Angels.
Pitching, pitching and pitching. Kevin Milwood, the #1 starter, was very ineffective because of injuries. Vicente Padilla was good but you can't win with one starter. The 3rd and 4th starters were unreliable. In the end, the lack of quality starts burned out the bullpen.
The hitting was good. The Rangers scored a lot of runs. Unfortunately, they gave up more!
How can we improve the Rangers in 2009?
The infield is set. Blalock had a great September after a long time on the disabled list. Kinsler hit .319 but missed the last 3 weeks. Young is Michael Young. Davis is a wonderful young player with lots of upside.
The outfield includes Josh Hamilton. I don't mind counting on Milton Bradley if he can stay healthy. Bradley can also DH.
I would move Hamilton to RF and trade for a leadoff hitter who can play center field, such as Tom Goodwin and Darryl Hamilton back in the late 90s.
The catcher position is pretty good. The organization is very deep in catching. I think that Gerard Laird could be moved for some pitching.
How do you get pitching? It's too expensive to pick up free agent pitchers. Also, who is out there anyway?
Sabathia? Sheets? My guess is that they will be back with Milwaukee, specially if the Brewers go deep in the playoffs.
What about pitching? I think that you have to bite the bullet and continue developing young arms like Feldman and Harrison.
Can the Rangers be competitive in 2009? I think that they can be competitive if Milwood and Padilla pitch full seasons. It will be tough to catch the Angels but the Rangers could be more competitive.
P.S. The Rangers' highlight moment was Josh Hamilton at the Home Run Derby. It was fun to watch all of those long range missiles:

It was very good for McCain on foreign policy. At times, Obama looked so weak that it was embarrassing.
