Market Tumbles on hearing Bush still President


www.huffingtonpost.com

President George W. Bush used a Rose Garden appearance today to reassure investors that he was at the helm of the U.S. economy, causing stock markets to plummet around the world.

"You don't have to worry about this economy, because I am in charge of it," said Mr. Bush, touching off what some observers were calling a global financial panic.

Mr. Bush began his remarks about the economy at 10:30 a.m. EST, and by 10:31 markets around the world had already gone into a perilous free-fall.

According to Wall Street insiders, the markets were responding to the news that Mr. Bush was still president.

Actually, you can make this stuff up. From the article you linked above...


Andy Borowitz is a comedian and writer whose work appears in The New Yorker and The New York Times, and at his award-winning humor site, BorowitzReport.com.


The dead giveaway is here:


One solution reportedly being pondered by the Fed would involve sending Mr. Bush to Disney World for the remainder of his time in office.


Please, move this to the appropriate forum. It is not breaking news, but a joke.

Are you sure its a joke? This quote seems legit, doesn't it?



Elsewhere, in his first comment on the Eliot Spitzer scandal, Vice President Dick Cheney said he has never hired a prostitute because "I've been screwing the country the last seven years."


Hehehe...

It may be a joke, but it is not in the appropriate forum for a joke. Breaking news should be for breaking news, not political satire.
