"not intended to take over the free market but to preserve it."

When words lose their meaning...

Hear that? That's the sound of weary travelers pounding the dusty road that leads to serfdom. Bush clearly understands nothing of economics or history or political science, even though dozens of authors (Hayek and Friedman would be a nice start, though at this point George Orwell shouldn't be neglected either) could easily explain it to him if he'd just tell Paulson to stuff the scare tactics.

The worst part is that this is the guy who supposedly supported limited government. Now he's engineering the greatest government intervention since FDR. Next, he'll wonder why private businesses are continuing to take absurd risks and then asking for bailouts.

This president is an absolute disgrace.
