Speaking to reporters yesterday, dubya evoked memories of his predecessor in office with evasive responses regarding his history of shady business dealings. At one point reporters actually laughed out loud when Bush said, “In the corporate world, sometimes things
aren’t exactly black and white when it comes to accounting procedures.” The leader of the free world reportedly responded with an icy glare. Sweet. More on the story, as part of the run-up to dubya’s big Wall Street speech today: Robert A. George, Robert Scheer (L.A. Times cypherpunk/cypherpunk login required), and a really funny whistling-past-the-graveyard editorial from the National Review’s Larry Kudlow.
