the "war on tight credit" equals the "war on terror" ?

it worked before, and time is running out on the bush administration, so why not try it again ? only this time, what Paulson is asking Congress for, in terms of authority and money, would be the equivalent of the President demanding that Congress give him the power and $700billion to go to WAR. without telling them which country, or countries, he intends to attack. how many troops, planes, ships, etc. will be used. and casually adding that any attempt to require oversight, either congressional or judicial, would be a "dealbreaker".
