I’m hearing echoes of burning the village to save the village here.
George Bush says he’s sorry but he’s sacrificed free market principles to save the free market system and avoid a collapse.
So, I’m just asking here, but if the system that is collapsing needs to have the principals it is built upon sacrificed what does that say about the principals in the first place?
Again, I’m just asking.
Oh, and here’s the er…. um… money quote:
"I feel a sense of obligation to my successor to make sure there is not a, you know, a huge economic crisis. Look, we're in a crisis now. I mean, this is -- we're in a huge recession, but I don't want to make it even worse."
