    Oh, my mistake, the writer is writing a article from for the Wall Street Journal who coincidentally is a host for FOX Business Network. I have no right question his credibility, and I should freely let him smear the image of our president. As I said before, my mistake.

    How patriotic. I think obama is nuts. Who turns down a couple hundred billion?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    The question is, (assuming that the administration really did refuse to take reimbursements for TARP money), why would the administration see fit to refuse the payments (or payemnts)? What overall benefit do they feel there would be in making the companies keep that money. One cannot help but factor in the time tested fact that government money always comes with some strings attached. This was perhaps most evident in the stimulus money offered to states, with the funds often carrying many requirements and stipulations for the states who took it. Some states decided to refuse portions of the stimulus money because of the strings attached to it that would've otherwise required them to make undesired changes and/or concessions.

    Power is something that is NEVER factored outside of an equation when it comes to the dealings of government. Government functions on power and the utilization of it. The motives behind such vies for power and control are what can be debated. The fact that using tax payer money to buy portions of banks and companies allows the government to have a say in the workings of those organizations (through share holdings and any stipulations explicitly outlined with the lending of government money) gives the government a certain amount of power and control/influence over them cannot be argued.

    If he did accept it back that might anger the chineese. Being that the chineese make more than the original tarp amount in interest through time. And what do the chineese represent? Human rights violater #1. So in turn, by not accepting tarp, he is supporting human rights violation. ????

    The whole idea behind tarp was to have it returned. Pehaps it's being offered back to quickly. Not enough time to collect enough interest to pay off interest groups. These interest groups are being paid by the year. In 1 1/2 years there is an election. The interest group funds of the stimulus can be changed. When a new congress is elected. Perhaps it's out of greed? Why take 700 bil now when you can take 1.4 tril later.

    This is somewhat funny, if the news doesn't swing your direction its bias here.

    I regular at least 7 (cnn, reuters, bbc, msnbc, fox, ktla, pbs, Bloomberg wire, etc) different sources for news, and many other individual news sources, and Fox News isn't anything outrageous.

    I find Fox news important because it will cover political stories in depth that other American news sources will only briefly mention.

    I find fox news (1st best in American media, 3rd or 4th best all around) best when reporting on international topics, this is mainly due to the fact that fox news will hit stories that other American news sources will neglect all together.

    After finding the story I can search foreign news sources, to further elaborate on the issue at hand.

    (Reuters being my favorite source)

    Edit:

    To Risen,

    I'll keep an eye out for further information on the topic, to verify such.

    What exactly was the smear here? Do you even know what a smear is?
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
