Funny: Did anyone watch Bush this afternoon?

No, not that bush, but Bush. He said: when you "securitize" homes for Americans.

I don't care who you root for, that is funny.

  • Girls, I hate to tell you but it is a word, it just might be a little too technical for your brains to process.

    It's a very valid financial term.

  • Bush, in addressing the Washington DC small business community said: Securitize. As in, he has worked for this bill to SECURITIZE American homes.

    There is no such word, it is funny.

  • My favorite Bushism was a while back when he talked about OBGYN's being able to show their 'love' to their patients. Ahh....Good times.
