At a fundraiser last week President Bush admitted that his friends in big business “got drunk” on all “these fancy financial instruments”, and now have “a hangover”. Is Bush actually realizing that throwing money at large corporations might not have been the best thing for him to do for the last 7 years?
By the way, need we point out that Phil Gramm (McCain’s chief financial advisor until last week) was largely responsible for making those drunken crazy-making “fancy financial instruments” legal? Does that make him the person who bought the alcohol for Wall Street’s drunken party?
And as a side note, Bush also mentioned that Laura is looking to move from Crawford to Dallas. As Daily Kos asks, does this mean that his ranch was merely a political prop?
