President Bush called an extraordinary meeting with Presidential elect Obama and other key officials at the White House today to discuss the horrendous financial down swing threatening America.
Greeting the small group Bush said, "My fellow Americans...and any Democrats present, (giving a minute nod in the direction of Obama) because of bad monetary policies left behind by the last administration we are having a recess (an aide whispers to him) er... a recession.
"In order to save my ass...er, our economy, we are going to instigate a $700 billion rebate...er, bailout to help the big boys...er, everyday Americans. In order to get through this time of great diversions...er, great difficulties we must ask people to keep their mouths shut...oops...keep spending money, especially on gas, to keep our asses,...er, our upper echelon...er, our economy afloat.
"I can only hope that the President who follows me will take the rap...er, be able to deal with this and not be considered the worst President ever."
Mr. Bush then uncrossed his fingers from behind his back and left the stage.
