Bush: I Burned The Village To Save the Village

Whenever you feel the need to sacrifice priciples, you've either done the wrong thing, or your attachment to said principles was never too strong to being with:

US President George W. Bush said in an interview Tuesday he was forced to sacrifice free market principles to save the economy from "collapse."

"I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system," Bush told CNN television, saying he had made the decision "to make sure the economy doesn't collapse."
