George Bush signed the housing bill today. Good for him. My take on it is here.
This is another example of how George Bush is just not a very good politician. He signed the bill, but Congress gets the credit for pushing the issue. Henry Paulson pushed for it, which is good. So Bush gets credit for hiring a good Treasury Secretary, and listening to said Secretary. But Bush is not going to get much credit for making this happen. From my perspective, it looks like Congress basically put a gun to his head. This is a serious crisis, and Bush has not provided much leadership on the issue. He's very much a lame duck.
