I’m not 100% sure of the timing, but . . . I’m watching the Frontline show on the meltdown, and they just showed Bush saying he’s not an economist and denying that there has been a recession, and he says, “I’m an optimist.”
It reminded me of the Obama quote, “I’m an optimist, but I’m not a sap.”
Zing. It’s why I have grown to like this guy so much.
