“This is an anxious time. But the American people can be confident in our economic future. We know what the problems are. We have the tools to fix them. And we’re working swiftly to do so” -President George Bush, on the current economic crisis.
The above quote, and in fact the everything about the way our federal administration is reacting to the current world economic crisis, reminds me of Chip Diller from Animal House screaming “Remain Calm! All is well!”. If we all stick our heads in the sand, maybe eight years of bad policy and two wars we cannot afford will all go away. ~sigh~ Obama is going to have a hell of a mess to clean up after he gets elected, as will the next dozen or so presidents after him. I do not envy any of them.
