Homeowners with crippling mortgage payments will have trouble getting help if they call a telephone number President Bush recommended last Thursday. He announced the wrong number.
“I have a message for every homeowner worried about rising mortgage payments: The best you can do for your family is to call 1-800-995-HOPE,” Bush said.
The correct number is 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).
The wrong number Bush gave out belongs to the Freedom Christian Academy in Texas.
Of course, if "Dubyah" called either number, he would find it difficult to communicate, because the photo shows him holding the telephone handset upside down. He probably won't hear much by listening to the microphone.
