Bush: Wall Street Got Drunk

President Bush, he himself apparently "not" drunk had this to say at a Houston area fundraiser after first asking that the cameras be turned off (shockingly, someone had a camera and ABC 13 in Houston posted video of it)(that video is now gone):

It is uncertain, there’s no question about it.

Wall Street got drunk, it got drunk, (it’s one of the reasons I asked you to turn off your tv cameras.) 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.

And now we got a housing issue, not in Houston, and evidently, not in Dallas, because Laura was over there trying to buy a house today. (laugher.. Crawford!)

I like Crawford, unfortunately after eight years of asking her to sacrifice, I’m now no longer the decision maker. She’ll be deciding, thanks for the suggestion! I suggest you don’t yell it out when she’s here. Later, telling her “Hey honey, we’ve been on government pay now for 14 years... so go slow!"

It’s uh.. caused me to lose my train of thought. Anyway.

Ah, that mortgage crisis. Sure is funny! I do find it is best described as a "housing issue." It also looks like Laura Bush now gets to be the decider. If only she had taken over seven years earlier...

Not sure why Bush thought people would actually turn off their cameras if he asked them to. It's sort of an invitation to people to sneakily leave their cameras on. His train of thought had apparently gone of the rails.

Update:

You can find the video HERE.
