Quote Of The Day

US President George W Bush addressing the crisis in the world’s financial sector:

“Wall Street got drunk. 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?”

Later, an interpretation by the White House press secretary:

“He said 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.”

I’d never have guessed.

  1. Hey, the idea of everyone getting drunk and not understanding their system makes a lot of sense…. (ever tried to work out your accounts with a hangover?)

  2. Ha, ha, ha. A statesman? The leader of the free world? The most powerful man on earth? The President of the United States of America?

    More like the village idiot’s dumber brother’s gofer if you ask me.

  3. One of the comments about this was that “Bush was the bartender” – I agree.

  4. Isn’t he the most pathetic, saddest, little moron that has ever lead any country ever?
    Even the worst of the despots had some kind of synapses firing in their brains. And made some kind of sense.
    How on earth do the intelligent life forms of the US take these madman’s mumblings (“Yo, Harper!”) and stumblings (the door) 24/7?
