Bush is back!

from Duane Graham's The Erstwhile Conservative:

“You’re not going to see me giving my opinions in the public arena, until I start selling my book.” —George W. Bush, October 21, 2010

Our former president, fittingly, spoke before a finance trade association yesterday in Chicago. It was fitting because the appearance gave him a chance to tell us all how sorry he was for what his administration’s policies, with aid from a Republican-controlled Congress, did to all our finances.

Whoops! My bad. He didn’t tell us how sorry he was about the economic disaster he presided over. Nope. But he did tell us—well, not exactly “us” but the finance trade association—according to the Chicago Tribune, that, his greatest failure in office was not passing Social Security reform.

Greatest failure? Not passing Social Security reform?

Oh, my. On his watch our entire economy nearly came crashing down, and his greatest failure was not to privatize part of Social Security, which would have cost seniors dearly during the collapse? Oh, my, my, my.
Oh, my, my, my indeed!
