Wall Street got drunk.
Foregoing the usual Wednesday Math stuff, I'm providing a link to TV report from Houston of Bush speaking off the record about the economy and his plans for after the White House. I first saw the video on The Huffington Post yesterday, posted by Greg Mitchell of Editor & Publisher magazine. Bush can be heard asking TV cameras to go off, then he just starts talking to the folks at the fundraiser, ruling class to ruling class. He admits there are problems even for the kind of people who can afford to give money to Republicans in Texas, whines about having been a poor public servant for 14 years, talks about possibly moving to Dallas and leaving the Crawford ranch behind.
I wanted to put up a YouTube embedded screen, but this thing has already been scrubbed from the YouTube treasure trove sometime between last night and early this morning. If you find it informative and possibly infuriating, please post a link on your blog. This thing should go viral and as many people as possible should see it.
Let me know what you think.
