Social Security nonsense.
Quoting Bush during his ridiculously poor press conference on Thursday night, "I don't think the American people want a President who relies upon polls and focus groups to make decisions for the American people. "
Not surprising for a president with only a 46 percent approval rating. The country thinks he is doing a poor job on all major issues:
War in Iraq - 40 percent approval rating
Jobs and the Economy - 36 percent approval
Social Security - 31 percent approval
Education - 39 percent approval
Environment - 35 percent approval
Taxes 40 percent approval
This president just sucks and the American people are starting to figure it out! But he doesn't give a crap and is willing to continue to just stuff his agenda down our throats. Even though the American people do not want radical change in Social Security he is forcing the issue.
In Falls Church, Virginia, the day after his press conference, Bush said that making that radical change in the government retirement system would erase about 70 percent of Social Security's long-term deficit. There is no basis in fact for this statement.
Should we actually believe him? If you say yes, keep in mind some of the other things he has said:
1. Saddam has weapons of mass destruction.
2. My tax cuts will not cause deficits.
3. I am a uniter not a divider and will reach across the aisle to Democrats.
4. We'll get bin Laden, "dead or alive."
5. No Child Left Behind will help public education.
6. I won't overextend the military and conduct nation-building exercises like Clinton.
The guy cannot lead and is a loser. Everything he has touched has turned to crap. You believe him if you want to. I never voted for him but was willing to give him a chance. He never earned my respect and I have given up on him completely.
