Bushist wonderland

When Duhbya says:

"It's the risk-takers, not the government, that is going to pull us out of this recession," the former president said, according to the Calgary Herald. "My message to policy-makers is don't substitute government for the marketplace."
Magical thinking continues - or magical reflex, anyway, since thinking is an unwarranted exaggeration. The current crisis has thoroughly falsified the perfection of the risk-takers.

Even so, it's still an article of faith for Duhbya that setting the money loose is a prescription for better days. The truth is that setting the money loose winds up with it in the pockets of the already rich - like him. That's all he asks of better days.
