Bush On Bailout: Congress Must Act

Bushie just addressed the press, and gave a slightly longer speech than his last one regarding the bailout. He is "disappointed by the outcome" and stressed that we need legislation that "helps the economy get moving again," as the "situation is urgent." He also mentioned the big huge number...777 points, and said that there will be "painful and lasting" economic damage if we (Congress) don't move our asses (to really drive the message home, 777 flashed on a green screen behind the president as well, before dropping into an animated lava pit, and emerging with what looked like severe third degree burns, with the question "Do you like scar tissue?" scrolling along the bottom).
