I can't believe my fellow CEOs from Chrysler and GM held those press conferences to go on record that I was lying! Can you believe the disloyalty?
But, on balance, its probably better I blew it. There was no way to make that tax thing work out---who thought that up, anyway???---and I was either going to add to the deficit if I cut taxes or I was going to make a whole lot more CEOs really mad when I backed off cutting their taxes. Nothing worse than doing the right thing and having everyone mad at you.
