George Bush On the Current State of the US Economy

(Quote and link courtesy of About Politics)

Press Conference of the President



A reporter: Yes, sir. I'd just like to ask, simply, what's your view of the economy right now? First-quarter growth came in weaker than expected, there have been worries about inflation and lower spending by consumers. Are these basically just bumps in the road, in your opinion, or are they reasons for some real concern and could they affect your agenda on Social Security?

Bush's answer was that he's concerned but...

There's some positive noises on Capitol Hill as to whether or not we can get an asbestos reform bill. That will be an important reform in order to make sure that our economy continues to grow.

I know this is petty, but what was up with Dubya's pin stripe suit?

First the cowboy motifs, now that he is comfortably in power, he has to decided to appropriate the second great mythic (male) American image... The Gangster!

Actually I didn't watch because I'm afraid I might throw something through the TV set... I read his speeches after the fact or listen to them on the radio.
