I didn't say "flip." I said "flop." I swear.

More than one person has pointed out that Bush's buildup to gutting Social Security shows the same M.O. as his buildup to the Iraqi War. This was in the L.A. Times:

In a significant shift in his rationale for the accounts, Bush dropped his claim that they would help solve Social Security's fiscal problems — a link he sometimes made during last year's presidential campaign. Instead, he said the individual accounts were desirable because they would be "a better deal," providing workers what he said would be a higher rate of return and "greater security in retirement."

"Shift in rationale".....hmmmm, where have I heard that before?

Are we going to see the same crap again? Is Bush going to do his usual shit: decide what he wants to do FIRST and then keep changing his reason for it on a daily basis until he finds one that works? While a lazy press corps fails to point out the inconsistencies?

It won't work this time.
