Former President George W. Bush, outlining plans for a new public policy institute, on Thursday said America must fight the temptation to allow the federal government to take control of the private sector, declaring that too much government intervention will squelch economic recovery and expansion.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:Jg2oxh1n3sxMYM:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v695/reubenrivas/bush_wtf_sticker.jpg

With the Obama administration establishing far-reaching controls in the auto, real estate and financial sectors, Mr. Bush said that "the role of government is not to create wealth, but to create the conditions that allow entrepreneurs and innovators to thrive."

"As the world recovers, we will face a temptation to replace the risk-and-reward model of the private sector with the blunt instruments of government spending and control. History shows that the greater threat to prosperity is not too little government involvement, but too much," said Mr. Bush, who has remained largely out of the limelight since leaving office and rarely criticizes his successor.

Delivering a speech on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, future home to the George W. Bush Presidential Center, the former president sought to explain his decision to have the federal government intervene at the beginning of the economic downturn last fall.

"I believe in the power of the free enterprise system, which made the decision I faced last fall one of the most difficult of my presidency. I went against my free market instincts and approved a temporary government intervention to unfreeze credit and prevent a global financial catastrophe," he said.

NOW he thinks about downsizing. Government spending was nearly twice as much when he left office as it was when he went in. The Bush administration was the one behind most of the TARP, bailout, and stimulus packages. Obama simply continued them.

Speaking today at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, former president George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush announced the creation of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, an archive, museum and policy center to be built on the SMU campus. In a joint address broadcast on the new center's Web site, the Bushes outlined the institute's policy goals and revealed several of the scholars who have signed on.

A museum and archive will contain "hundreds of millions" of images, documents, and email from the Bush presidency, and icons like the bullhorn the former president used to address relief workers after the 9/11 attacks. A policy arm called the Bush Institute will perform research and advocate work in four policy areas: education, global health, human freedom, and economic growth. It will also include a major women's initiative, which Laura Bush said would be integrated with every area of research and activism at the center. The Bushes will host two major conferences next March, one on education leadership and another for Afghan women.

"I strongly believe women will lead the democracy movement in the Middle East, and they will have an ally in the Bush Institute," Bush said of the institute's goal to promote women in leadership both at home and abroad.

In his first domestic announcement since leaving office, the former president briefly addressed several contentious moments of his administration. He said he had been reviewing millions of documents and emails while writing his memoirs. "Since I left office I have had a little time to reflect. There were some good days and some tough days, but every day I was honored to represent nation I love. I gave nation my all, always did what i believed best interest of country, and came home to Texas with my values intact." He said last year's bailout of Wall Street banks went against his free-market principles, but was necessary to "avoid a major global depression."

Scholars who have joined the Bushes include Jim Guthrie, a Vanderbilt professor; Mark Dybul, Bush's former AIDS relief director; and Jim Glassman, a conservative journalist and former undersecretary of state.

Yes, but since the bailout some people have been able to see what was under the mask and have been calling him out on it:
YouTube - Bush was also a socialist (Chris Matthews Show) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRnUwRaT8Nk)
this stupid thinktank will work to reverse that trend, and liberals will feel more solidified to blame the financial disaster on the free market, and the right will start to think Bush has really been on the side of free markets all along - he just made some mistakes along the way, that's all

“George Bush intends to starve the SBA to death,” he says, “and end all programs for the little guy.”



To Chapman, whose legal clashes with the SBA and the Bush administration are extensive and ongoing, these are signs of an agency that, after 55 years, is headed toward marginalization, if not outright dismantlement.


Then there are the lawsuits, some of which stem from allegations that under the SBA’s watch, a significant percentage of federal small business contracts have been wrongfully diverted to major corporations via their smaller subsidiaries.


While the Bush administration touts itself as pro-business, “they’ve used their final year in office to put forth a [2009] budget that would cut the SBA’s funding by nearly 30 percent from when they took control, raised the fee on its largest loan program, and are doing little to help underserved entrepreneurs in the midst of a nationwide economic crisis.”

SBA budget equals 1/5,000 of the federal budget. Small business equals more than 1/2 of employment and more than 1/2 of GDP.

Yep, any American who has any money left should short the think tank.
