Something happened just recently that seems to have rattled the President Bush’s cage. Surely it isn’t the failure of his ‘free market system’ that has plunged the entire globe into crisis? I think it’s much simpler. Perhaps his near fatal run-in with some shoes’ just recently, yep! I think that has done it.
