FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (FMLIVEWIRE) - President Bush has reassured a nervous public that the US economy is "pretty good" for rich Republicans as the housing market collapses, an international credit crisis accelerates and as prices surge for energy, food, health care and most other things not made in China.
"There's definitely storm clouds for poor Democratic churls, but the outlook for my rich cronies is very good," Bush told a Rotary Club.
In this glum holiday season, consumer confidence is at a two-year low as the economy plunges into recession.
"We've had a pretty good economic run for patricians as we outsource our best jobs to China and India," Bush said.
"Congress can help me by reducing taxes for my rich buddies and the oil industry, and by driving the middle class and the government further into debt and penury," Bush said. "Congress can also help fund my theft of oil from Iraq in our illegal war there, which also helps push up the profits and stock value of Halliburton and Exxon Mobil."
Bush was dressed up in a red and white Santa Claus outfit and left the baffled audience to the tune of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
