President Bush last week said publicly that “Wall Street got drunk … and now it’s got a hangover. The question is how long it will sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments.” Not since President Camacho referred to the economy as the eco-mony in his state of the union speech has a U.S. president demonstrated so little knowledge of our economy. Camacho is the U.S. president in the year 2505 in a movie called Idiocracy, which is about how severely dumbed down our country becomes over the generations. For comparison, below is a video of Bush’s comments on the Wall Street hangover followed by a video of Camacho giving the House of Representatives his Three Point Plan for fixing the eco-mony.
