Jeez, it was everywhere about a month ago...even showed up in Newsweek's Quotes
of the Week section. I saw it when it first aired, and the context was this:
when Bush came in, there was a budget surplus which he said could be used for X
purposes and still give a whole bunch of tax breaks to major businesses in the
Texas area. This year, due to those policies, there's expected to be a budget
*shortfall*, and no one yet knows just how bad that's going to be yet. That's
not in contest by anyone, even Bush. The final context was that he was asked
what he thought the shortall would be, and he said he hoped he woudn't have to
worry about (on the theory that he would be in the White House by then).
Now, THAT'S what I call responsible governing....
