Bush is doing a press conference as we speak. He is defensive and combative. He said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are in good shape, but mentioned that it would be the “Democrat Congress’s” fault if it wasn’t. While he was at it, he mentioned that it was the Democrat Congress’s fault that:
gas prices were skyrocheting;
taxes were raising, or at least would raise if they were in charge
the Outer Continental Shelf (or OCS, as he helpfully informed us it’s called) is not flowing with oil;
the war in Iraq has been won but we don’t know it;
we do not have a free trade agreement with Colombia;
the Taliban is resurgent in Afghanistan, which it’s not, that’s just fearmongering, but if they were, it’s the Ds’ fault.
I could go on and on. He sounds delusional, completed wrapped up in his fantasy world.
The scariest part was that, three times during the press conference, felt compelled to remind the American people that their bank deposits were insured up to $100,000 by the FDIC. What’s up with that?
What a tool.
