I think these are nasty tricks to pull right before an election.
Bush is blaming the entire mortgage mess on congress...You know if it were a republican congress he wouldn't be doing this.
And NOW Bush is saying he will bring home 4000 troops from Iraq and send more into Afghanistan. Gee....wasn't that Obama's idea?
Either that or he's hoping it will cause a quagmire and then McCain will be a shoo-in as the only person "hero" that can fix the mess.
Be afraid....be very afraid.
