The video with Bush's "Wall Street got drunk" comments

Well, well, well, we have suspected that Bush is disregarding the hurt and pain that people feel in the economy.  If this is how people feel, shouldn't elected officials speak in a sensitive manner on the issue?  

Not so with George W. Bush, the Decider.  Here we have Bush speaking candidly, flippantly about Wall Street's meltdown this year.  He was speaking last weekend, on July 18, 2008, at a fundraiser for Republican challenger Pete Olson for Texas' 22nd Congressional District.  (Olson is challenging Democrat Nick Lampson.  The suburban Houstan district has a high median income of $57,932.  This had been tragic former House Majority Leader Republican Tom DeLay's seat.  The seat became an easy snatch for the Democrats because the Republicans only had a write-in candidate in the special election, as DeLay's resignation came in too late.)

Thank you to Houston's (WTRK) Miya Shay for uploading the speech along with her report.  Watch out for those cameraphones!  

It is uncertain, there’s no question about it.

Wall Street got drunk, it got drunk, (it’s one of the reasons I asked you to turn off your tv cameras.) It got drunk and now it’s got a hangover. The question is how long will it sober up, and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments.
