Social security and this country’s ability to focus
Early this month, Dubya announced that he is going to make "60 stops in 60 days" to sell his plan on overhauling social security.
Now, as far as I can tell, Dubya hasn’t presented anything more concrete than: social security, in trouble… private accounts, good. Never mind that the latter has nothing to do with solving the former. Is there really nothing more pressing going on in the world that the president has two months to kill selling a plan that does not exist?
Nothing more pressing like say… the two wars that we’ve started recently… the two axis of evil countries claiming to have nuclear weapons… a massive growing federal deficit… a sliver of peace between Israel and Palestine (that we seem content to let the Egyptians handle)…
Fine, fine… you’re right… the only really important thing going on these days… Terri Schiavo.
