Wall Street gets shit-faced?

If you haven't heard Bush's comments about how Wall Street "got drunk" and is now "hung over," then here they are:

"There's no question about it. Wall Street got drunk — that's one of the reasons I asked you to turn off the TV cameras — it got drunk and now it's got a hangover," Bush said at a private fundraiser for Republican congressional candidate Pete Olson. "The question is: How long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments?"

Well that was blunt, wasn't it?

And, I'm no economist, but from what I read it sounds like a fairly accurate comparison.

So what's the big deal here? Why the hell is this even news?

Sometimes I just wonder...

Drunk, huh? That's not going to play well in any of the 57 states.
