Buying ourselves outta trouble

The following post from The Poor Man tickled my funnybone:

Hey! Who Ever Said That This Presidenting Stuff Is Hard Work?
Bush noted that in addition to the budget deficit, America suffers from a huge trade deficit. "That's easy to resolve," Bush said. "People can buy more United States products if they're worried about the trade deficit."

Bush's comments came a day after the government reported that America's trade deficit hit a monthly record of $55.5 billion in October.

Also easy to resolve: homelessness (people can buy more homes), sickness (people can buy more medicines), shortage of seats to popular sporting events (people can just buy more tickets), and countless others. With this sort of bold, effective leadership, the next four years should see a drastic decline in problems caused by people not buying enough of things.

Missed the point of Bush's statement. He's saying that if people are so concerned about the trade deficit then they should be buying more American products. In otherwords Bush won't force people to buy things from places that they don't want to.
