WASHINGTON - President Bush said Friday that while there is some uncertainty about slowing economic growth, the nation's "financial markets are strong and solid."
Bush spoke after getting an update from his top economic advisers, who are helping him decide whether to offer a package to stimulate the U.S. economy as it weathers the housing slump, rising oil prices and an uptick in unemployment.
"This economy of ours is on a solid foundation, but we can't take economic growth for granted," Bush said. "And there are signs that will cause us to be ever more diligent and make sure that good policies come out of Washington."
For those of you who are paying more and are worried about your home, we understand that," Bush said. "That's why we have an aggressive policy to help creditworthy people stay in their homes."
"We have got to understand that if we are worried about gasoline prices, we ought to expand refineries here in the United States, and we ought to explore for oil and gas in environmentally friendly ways in the United States," he said.

Ok, I've got to raise the BS flag here. Whether you like or dislike Bush is irrelevant, but making outright ludicrous assertions due to your dislike(i.e. made billions as President), weakens your credibility. I'd love to see one single piece of evidence that would corroborate that statement. There's a big difference in wishing something to be true, and having the proof to show that it is in fact true.
