Sending the Wrong Message

So, I read about President Bush’s address to the nation tonight.  He was urging the American public to accept the bailout.  One of his quotes was:  “It will help american businesses and consumers get credit to meet their daily needs and create jobs.”

Can you believe that?  Credit for their “daily needs.”  What happened to paying cash?  What happened to living within your means?

If this is the message the President is sending, we are nowhere near the end of this credit crunch.  Once credit becomes available, we’ll max it all out again.

Of course, this is coming from the administration that has run up the largest national debt in our history, so maybe this is business as usual…
