Default Bush continues to make himself look like a fool.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...-has-hangover/


(CNN) — Financial experts have spent months tracing the roots of the housing market implosion that sent the global economy into chaos. President Bush has his own explanation: Wall Street got drunk.

"There's no question about it. Wall Street got drunk," Bush told supporters at a Republican fundraiser in Houston Friday. "It got drunk and now it's got a hangover. The question is, how long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments?"

His comments at the private event were recorded on a cell phone, and posted to the Web Tuesday.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said the president was just relating his views in a slightly more colorful manner. "He has said before that Wall Street was dealing with very complex financial instruments and that the markets didn't fully understand the risks that those instruments posed to the system," she said Wednesday.


"It is certainly a more colorful way of saying what he said before, but he's described it that way before in terms of his observations of what happened to the market.”

In the video, The video shows Bush joking with a friendly crowd and musing about his life when he leaves the White House in January.

"We've got a housing issue," Bush said. "Not in Houston, evidently not in Dallas, because Laura's over there trying to buy a house today."

He also said the housing market seemed to be doing well in Dallas, where his wife had been looking for a new post-presidential home for the couple, despite earlier statements from Bush that the family’s ranch in Crawford, Texas would be their home after leaving the White House.

"I like Crawford, unfortunately after eight years of asking her to sacrifice, I am no longer the decision maker," he said. "I did tell her, 'Honey, we've been on government pay now for 14 years, go slow.'"

Funny thing is, that is probably the best explanation yet.

You can't be serious.



Heck, I can find good things that the two worst presidents last century had done....

Sadly, they were both in the 70's, ,which explains a lot about that decade.

are you really blinded by hate that much?

blinded by hate? you have to be freaking kidding me.... Oil is up 6 fold during his presidency, he goes into iraq for his own political gain, his economic policy has crippled this country and forced people out of their homes. Not to mention being labled the worlds biggest polutist. If you need more things he has dropped the ball on let me know

1. I fail to see where GWB raised the price of oil.

2. Just how did going into Iraq benifit him politically? Yeah.....made him real popular.

3. The last I heard, people are losing their homes because they were stupid enough to sign for loans they couldn't afford to pay back. I don't recall seeing GWB forcing anyone to sign for them.

4. Pollution...... Ever heard of China?

You forgot to mention he how caused all those hurricanes. He was nice enough to cancel them last year, though.

I'd suggest avoiding all those left wing websites if I were you. You can get some good bumper sticker slogans there, though.

And apparently you are so far on the right you can't see the obvious. Funny how an oil man goes into office and oil goes up 6 fold in 6 years. As far as the forclosure crisis a piss poor economy and job loss didnt help. Bush put us in iraq for his own personel vendetta and he would have never got elected for a second term if it wasn't for the iraq war.
