Bush caught on camera: Wall Street has hangover, needs to sober up

July 23, 2008 01:49

President George W. Bush, in an unguarded moment, said Wall Street "got drunk and now its got a hangover." He made the comment at a political fundraiser in Houston last Friday after asking members of the audience to turn off their video cameras. Someone obviously ignored his request and a snippet wound up on a blog Tuesday by Miya Shay of ABC affiliate KTRK in Houston. Bush clearly was in a good mood as he addressed a crowd in a private home. Members of the media were barred from the appearance. "There is no question about it. Wall Street got drunk," the president said. "That's one reason I asked you to turn off your TV cameras." "The question is, How long will it (take to) sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments?"
