Quote of the day

No, it's not George W. Bush, trying to channel Roosevelt but falling way short when he said: "We'll get through this deal." But Cheney's sock puppet is the source.

It was this, from New York Times: (belatedly, link corrected, but the quote was the thing)

Now, as he spends his last months in office trying to avert a global economic collapse, Mr. Bush has been telling people privately that it’s a good thing he’s in charge.

“He said that if it was going to happen at all, he was glad it was happening under his presidency, because he had a good group of people in D.C. working for him,” Dru Van Steenberg, one of several small-business owners who met with Mr. Bush in San Antonio earlier this week.

The only thing we have to fear is the fear that he'll be in charge much longer.
