George Bush’s Surprising Embrace of the IMF


I just posted this entry over at TPM Cafe.
I found President Bush’s positive commentary about the IMF and the Argentina bail-out surprising and out of character given the intensity of the 1997-98 debate about IMF replenishment.
Some of you will not find this commentary by Bush so interesting — but as someone who was pretty close to that battle, I’m very surprised by the unqualified, casual support that Bush implied in his comments today.
More later.
