Lift your lamp beside the golden door, Break not the golden rule, avoid well the golden calf, know; not all that glitters is gold, and laissez faire et laissez passer [let do and let pass] but as a shining sentinel, hesitate not to ring the bell, defend the gates, and man the wall

Herbert Hoover

Hoover's plan the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, although not a direct parallel operated for the same anti-capitalist "bail out" goals as TARP.  
Hoover was a proponent of the concept that public-private cooperation was the way to achieve high long-term growth [ie Socialism].
Hoover ran for election on Engineering credentials. A very Futurist/Progressive appeal.

Hoover gave us the Smoot Hawley Tarrif

Hoover raised taxes from 25% to 63% and Unemployment soared to 25%
