MANASSAS, Virginia, Sept. 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, issued the following statement regarding the negotiations over the proposed Wall Street bailout:
"This bailout is something only a liberal Democrat could love. Conservatives are sick about this total cave-in by President Bush and the Senate Republicans. The proposed bailout would take us strongly toward a socialist America.
"In the last two days, Senator John McCain and the House Republicans have shown leadership to preserve America's free enterprise system.
"Today, Senator McCain is a hero to the American people. He is Horatio at the bridge."
