George Bush decided to take a moment from clearing brush and petting the family dog to be president for a while, seeing as how we’re in the middle of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression while he’s in office. How generous of him. He says that “We can solve this crisis and we will.” Gosh, that’s great.
And now, back to your regularly scheduled vacation:
Perino said Bush, after his statement on Friday, would proceed with his scheduled trip to Coral Gables, Fla., and Kiawah Island, S.C., for political fundraisers and a meeting with the Republican National Committee. He also will meet with representatives of the Cuban-American community in Florida.
Late Update: It seems that MSNBC has taken that last bit down. Did she say it or didn’t she?
