BUSH: First of all, let me just--quick history--recent history: The stock market started to decline in March of 2000. Then the first quarter of 2001 was a recession, and then we got attacked on 9/11, and then corporate scandal started to bubble up to the surface which created a lack of confidence in the system. And then we had the drum beat to war.
I remember on our TV screens--I'm not suggesting which network did this, but it said: "March to war," every day from last summer until the spring: "March to war, march to war, march." That's not a very conducive environment for people to take risks when they hear "march to war" all the time.
*cough* Uh, yeah, Mr. President, that's true...
