    On news, neutral and hobby websites for two years thereafter, I'd post it whenever a Republican would blame President Obama for not increasing the GDP by 80%.

    I specifically remember three of the pictures. Paulson with his back up against the wall in a hallway during the emergency meetings with his chin down and a look on his face like he'd lost his family in a car wreck. Bush at his press conference looking like he finally understood something -- and it was what Hell looks like, and Greenspan in a hearing shortly after the collapse.

    It took me 15 minutes to find one of those pictures. Wouldn't you know, PBS put one of those pictures on the cover of their "Inside the Meltdown" documentary. You can see it here.

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

      But thanks for the pic of Paulson.

      You know, in a way this was like the Cuban Missile Crisis.  A lot of us didn't quite take in how dreadful it really was.
