On Friday, June 18th, at a fundraiser for candidate Pete Olson, President Bush, a Harvard MBA, shared his assessment of the economy after asking that cameras be turned off:

“There’s no question about it: Wall Street got drunk…it got drunk, and now it’s got a hangover. The question is, how long [until it sobers up], and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments?”
