Reckless Decisions...Look Who's Talking...

Bush, in his speech about the mortgage crisis...a crisis created by encouraging predatory lending and re-writing the bankruptcy laws in favor of credit card companies, by the way...made the following statement:

"We should not bail out lenders, real estate speculators or those who made the reckless decision to buy a home they knew they could never afford."

Why are only the home buyers who were victims of the lenders and real estate speculators given an adjective like "reckless"?

I'd say fine to not bailing out "predatory" lenders or reckless real estate speculators who have watched too many episodes of "Flip That House".

But if we're going to go after reckless people who bought more than they knew they could afford...I'd really like to go after the people who planned this war.

Sorry, these wars.

I have an idea for a whole new reality show..."Flip This War."

Oh, it's already on TV 24 hours a day...on CNN.
