Bush to Wall Street: Sober up!
Have you noticed how reformed alcoholics are always telling the rest of us to sober up? One such is our own President George Bush who has just issued a startling order to the bankers of Wall Street.
In an unguarded moment at a Houston political fundraiser last Friday, the Daily News reveals Texan-raised Bush told his fellow Stetson wearers, “[Wall Street] got drunk and now it’s got a hangover. The question is, How long will it [take to] sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments?”
Bush hangs up his own instrument in six months when he’ll be returning from Washington to Texas, where they possibly understand him a little better.
