Quote Of The Day: Hypocrite In Chief Edition

by Doug Mataconis

A two-fer today.

First, from our fearless leader about 4 months ago:

“Our policy in this administration — laws shouldn’t bail out lenders, laws shouldn’t help speculators.”

President Bush, May 19, 2008

And, second, from the Republican Party Platform, passed in convention only three weeks ago:

We do not support government bailouts of private institutions. Government interference in the markets exacerbates problems in the marketplace and causes the free market to take longer to correct itself. We believe in the free market as the best tool to sustained prosperity and opportunity for all.

Yea, sure you do.
