George W. Bush Admits He Went Against His "Free Market Instincts" in 2008 - Video 11/12/09


Here is video of former President George W. Bush today in a speech he gave at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, admitting that he went "against" his "free market instincts" when he decided to move forward with the Wall Street Bailouts in the Fall of 2008. But Bush warned:

"History shows that the greater threat to prosperity is not too little government involvement, but too much."
That's exactly right. He should have stuck to his principles and instincts.

Obama is sticking to his principles and instincts in trying to ratchet up government involvement in everything to the greatest extent possible.

Bush was outlining plans for his Presidential Center that will be housed at SMU. Here is video of his entire speech.

I think it's too late for Bush.

At least he has the guts to say he was wrong unlike most people in. Everyone liked to call him a nazi and a commie yet look what president is leading us there and he knows he's doing it. I'm a republican and i hate most peopel in the GOP because they aren't who they claim to be. I respect Bush and will do so until proven wrong. I know he made mistakes just like every other president who's agenda isn't ruining this country.

@Suzanne I also like that he admitted he was wrong as well, but let's face it, it didn't begin with the bailouts, it ended with them. Just look at how big government got under his administration. This is not true conservatism.
