Economics 12/10/2009: Bertie's quote of the day...

Help us, but as we deal with the fallout of the Green Party disastrous attempt to save face on economic policy, here is a quote of the day from our former Dear Leader (may I remind you that my sources suggest that the current Governing Party's largest fraction in the Dail actually lobbying for his return):

Irish Times (without irony): "Were they not the people you suggested should go off and commit suicide at the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (Ictu) conference in 2007?"

Bertie: "That wasn’t about a boom-and-bust issue . . . It was trying to get the Ictu to hold their nerve and keep productivity high. Anyway, it was the collapse of Lehman Brothers that did the real damage. That decision will in history be written as the biggest mistake that American administration ever made, because Lehmans was a world investment bank. They had testicles [sic] everywhere."

Oh, my, what can one add...
