We've got battling green eye shades - HUH?

Ok sometimes I don't understand the man but this is just plain weird.
Am I missing something here?
Is this some old Texas saying like "fool me once,,shame on ... ... shame on fool me you can't get fooled again.. "

"He says, well, he's going to raise the taxes on the rich -- that's what he said-- the top two brackets. That raises, he says $800 billion; we say $600 billion. We've got battling green eye shades."
George Bush

What in the hell does this mean ?

Maybe visors like the ones card dealers, and bookies have ?

Sure like the little visors the numbers guys might wear in a movie?

Gambling with our future George?
