Okay, this is like Bill Clinton giving a press conference to comment on the value of marital fidelity. Too little, too late, George. From the Washington Times:
Former President George W. Bush … said America must fight the temptation to allow the federal government to take control of the private sector, declaring that too much government intervention will squelch economic recovery and expansion. With the Obama administration establishing far-reaching controls in the auto, real estate and financial sectors, Mr. Bush said that “the role of government is not to create wealth, but to create the conditions that allow entrepreneurs and innovators to thrive.”
Right. And where does “abandoning free market principles in order to save the free market” fit into this?
