President Bu$h had a press conference! Remember those? They're those things that President Clinton and even Reagan used to have a lot, and this president never does.
"All the president did tonight was confirm that he will pay for his risky privatization scheme by cutting the benefits of middle-class seniors," said Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California."
Thanks God for Harry and Nancy! At least someone's making some sense out there. Lord knows, it isn't Bu$h who's making any sense!
From the AP article: "Bush spoke as White House officials issued written material saying the type of change he had in mind could be accomplished with a 'sliding scale benefit formula.'" Oooooooo! Written material! Ooooooooo! A sliding scale! Isn't that something like a slippery slope, Mr. President? Like, a slippery slope into poverty, maybe? Jeez.
Is this guy for real? Well, unfortunately he thinks he is. Lord, God in heaven, has the idea of President Kerry ever looked so good as it does tonight?
I smell smoke. And I think it's coming from something Bu$h is inhaling.
Two words: Poor Laura.
