Remove Foot, Close Mouth, Praise the Free Market
For some reason, the federal government has been all about the free market this week. Even our very own lame duck, George W. Bush, had some inspiring words about economic freedom today. El Presidente spoke in front of The Manhattan Institute of New York — a free-market economic think tank. (Gee, that sounds familiar.)
Some highlights of the speech include Bush praising the free market as the best approach to promote business, and stating that smarter government — not larger government — is beneficial. Truly words to live by, as ironic as they may be coming from Dubya’s mouth. Say what you will, but the man has been the greatest cheerleader the free market has had of late.
