For those who didn't understand what it meant when Bush said "Battling Green Eyeshades"

"Green Eyeshades" was slang for "Accountants."

I probably should have known that...

I actually think that would make a great name for a band. Bush was showing his age a bit -- that's an older slang for numbers people. It's what people used to call the deficit hawks in congress (remember those?).

I had never heard it before (and there are a number of accountants in my family)...

Thanks for stopping by, paperwight!
