The Times has a curious article up about our President and his response to the Crash. It is as if he views this crisis as an “Act of God”, which he had no more responsibility for than a hurricane.
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.
Could he really be so delusional to think that his reckless borrowing and deregulatory policies had nothing to do with the crisis?
I’m not a psychiatrist, but I know there must be a name for this condition.
