War is Peace. Ignorance is Strength. Opportunity is Risk.

Bush's economic policies actually make sense if you replace each occurrence of the word "opportunity" with the word "risk". And of course, that's an easy transposition for a guy like Bush to make:

But if there's one enduring motif in the life of George W. Bush, it is that he's always been sheltered from the consequences of risk -- that is, of failure. Exposed to the draft, he had business and political associates of his father get him a slot in a National Guard unit far from Vietnam. As an oil bidness entrepreneur, he would have gone belly-up on several occasions but for the intervention of more such associates, for whom the notion of helping out the vice president's boy had a certain je ne sais quoi.

Now it all makes sense.
