Bush Vows New-Push for Social Security Reforms After November Elections (Yeah, You Do That)

"There are no second acts in American lives."
--F. Scott Fitzgerald

Your President George W. Bush has announced he will commence his work on "reforming" (privatizing-it, so others can invest-it) Social Security after the elections. Why not try now, it's not going to happen then either. Even if the GOP won every incumbent's seat in both houses, it won't happen. Why? Because of Iraq. It won't be over after the elections, and neither will the high-price of gasoline. They'll be back-in-spades at that time. But, I don't think the GOP is going to hold all of those incumbent-seats, not at all. And the irony is, I think many will these seats will be empty even if they win the elections, because more convictions are coming from Jack Abramoff. The scandals surrounding Jack Abramoff have to be seen as one overarching scandal, with tentacles reaching-out to dozens of representatives.
