Bush may be utterly unpopular as President, a lame duck waiting to be put down, he may be shunned by those seeking to be his parties backing (McCain seems to have forgotten who Bush is) but boy, can this old boy raise funds. So, as long as cameras aren't there, he is wheeled out to bring in the heavily devalued dollars to the GOP coffers.
Unfortunately, someone was filming, while he went and reeled off this classic:
"There's no question about it, Wall Street...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."
He went on to increase his gaffe SLG when discussing how Dallas seems to be unaffected by the current, crippling, economical downturn:
"We've got a housing issue...Not in Houston, evidently not in Dallas, because Laura's over there trying to buy a house today."
Brilliant. Laugh in the face of thousands of Americans housing and financial woes. See for yourself...
