"My Government has a strong dollar policy," Mr Bush told leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) forum in Chile:
"As far as our short-term deficit goes, I'll present a Budget that continues us on the path to reducing our deficit in half over a five-year period of time... My commitment to the international world is that we'll deal with the short-term deficit and the long-term unfunded liabilities, so that people can then take a look at our dollar in terms of fiscal austerity in Washington."Back home, the Senate was budgeting for a new Presidential yacht:
"The Senate voted 65-30 for the legislation late on Saturday that sets aside funds for a range of priorities including a presidential yacht, foreign aid and energy."And in New York, the Bush twins were reportedly turned away from a restaurant to the delight of diners:
Freemans, tuesday night the 16th of nov. the bush twins , along with 2 massive secret service men, tried to have dinner. they were told by the maitre'd that they were full and would be for the next 4 years. upon hearing, the entire restaurant cheered and did a round of shots...They shouldn't be cheering. Such intolerance is a sure sign of a society in decline.
