Quote of the Day
President George W. Bush, explaining the federal government's plan to partially nationalize American banks in an attempt to reverse a credit crisis that the federal government itself largely created:
"The government's role will be limited and temporary," Bush pledged. "These measures are not intended to take over the free market but to preserve it."Isn't it quaint that American leaders still feel it necessary to maintain a pretense about their power grabs, and lie so openly to the people?
