Bush should be answering real questions during economic crisis

Since the Wall Street meltdown began, President Bush has given canned speeches and photo-ops but has not even held a single press conference.

Where is our President in this time of crisis? A true leader would follow the lead of FDR, directly addressing Americans’ legitimate concerns and explaining his huge bailout request (over $2,300 per American). Instead his “press availability” is even more tightly controlled than Sarah Palin’s: he sends technocrats like Paulson, Bernanke and Cox out to take the heat while he takes shelter in the White House.

Shame on you Mr. Bush.
