The Most Heartfelt Moment of the Night

"If you've got children in their 20s, as some of us do, the idea of Social Security collapsing before they retire does not seem like a small matter."

Maybe you liberals should keep this in mind as you accuse our President of trying to destroy social security. You think he wants to see his twin daughters go without in their golden years? He's doing this with them in mind. This is about a father and his love. You Lefties are going bonkers!


  • Uhh, Dude.. the Bush Family would NEVER EVER need social security. The twins are set for life, especially now after being the daughters of a president.

  • I have to agree with anon -- if you think that Dubya is worried about Jenna and not-Jenna being able to collect SS when they retire, you need to check the color of the sky, 'cos you're not on planet Earth. I'll bet you also worried about how the estate tax was going to take money away from the kids of poor people when they died, right?

  • I am more concerned about this.

    1. Investments and 401K plans go bankrupt. Infact many are doing so right now.

    2. There will be another Stock Market crash.Its not a matter of if, but when.

    3. Those so-called personal savings accounts will loose money instead of gain. On the Stock Market, 9 times out of 10 an investment looses money.

    and if you think regulations will save the personal savings accounts of those who were foolish enought to fall for mr. bush's twisted scheme. Just talk to those who lost all their life savings in S and L's during the huge crisis back in 1990. There were regulations in place and people still lost 90% of what they put in. In the end the people had to agree to a smaller settlement and many went bankrupt as a result.

  • I think that the kickbacks Bush inc. will get from Wall Street will more than pay for a comfortable retirement for the drunken twins. I suspect they will be able to retire at about age 21 or so. A better question is how do the rest of us get our kids on that plan.

  • Typical Lefty fear-mongering. Bonkers.

  • The real problem here is not SS, but the health care crisis. A study was released yesterday that said that more than 50% of bankruptcys are due to medical bills. 75% of that 50% were insured and a majority were middle class. Tort reform will only address 1% of the total cost.

    If BushCo would quit giving big corporate handouts and tax cuts to people who don't need 'em, maybe there wouldn't be a problem with either.

  • OK this is obviously a joke. Jenna and NotJenna needing SS? HAHAHA That wouldn't cover one night drinking and drugging.

  • I agree with not Jeff. Certainly the twins will be much more responsible with financial investments! Let's have them invest all our retirement money including Congressional pensions.

  • It's a tough time for the left-wing blogosphere, people like Fat Ollie Willis and Atrios.

    First, they didn't get the bloodbath they were hoping for during the Iraqi elections. Then, the President gives a SOTU address that is extremely well-received.

    Liberals don't know whether to shit or go blind.

  • I know. Everything is going so flawlessly, they don't know what to complain about.

    By Blogger J. Gannon, at 12:08 PM  

  • wth? Everything is going flawlessly? You guys need to open your eyes. The iraq war (and it's still going on, no matter what the bush crimnal cartel says) is extremely bloody. Mostly innocent and civilian lives (that hardly ever get covered by our so called liberal media) are being ended.

    And the economy sucks.. big time. Prices for most everything is way up. Jobs are in the crapper. I myself have been out of work for over a year (in north carolina) and can't find a job, even retail. All the high paying jobs are going overseas.

    And monkeys sotu? That's just beyond words.. I can't even diginiy that with a response.. I'd prefer monkey to stfu.

  • if you can't find a job, it's your fault. It's not the fault of the President or the economy.

    Stop blaming others for your shortcomings and lack of a work ethic, you frickin loser.

  • Bush Lies and Retires go hungry. This article is a must-read for opponents and supporters of Bush's Social Security plan. If after 40 years your account is worth $100,000 you only get $21,000. The Government gets the rest!

  • You think he wants to see his twin daughters go without in their golden years? He's doing this with them in mind. This is about a father and his love. You Lefties are going bonkers! More proof that the right is losing it's grip on reality. People in the Bush family don't worry about SS.

    Shouldn't you be out trying to protest Spongebob?

  • So, what do you say to all the Republicans who aren't on W's train wreck, I mean band wagon?

    Even the non-neocon Republicans know it's a bad idea to do these messy quick fixes to SS.

    You neo-cons are wacked!

  • Today, Social Security is sound, but a demographic crisis is looming. By 2030, there will be twice as many elderly as there are today, with only two people working for every person drawing Social Security. After 2032, contributions from payroll taxes will only cover 75 cents on the dollar of current benefits. So we must act, and act now, to save Social Security. -- Bill Clinton July 27, 1998

    "What should we do with this projected surplus (the peace dividend)? I have a simple four-word answer: Save Social Security first." Bill Clinton 1998 state of the union address.

    "Save Social Security first" -- Al Gore.
    "Save Social Security first" -- Richard Gephardt.
    "Save Social Security first" -- Ted Kennedy.
    "Save Social Security first" -- Barbara Boxer.

  • Yes George Bush is indeed a kind, concerned and loving father. Not only to his two daughters, but in effect to everyone! And I have it on the best authority that his daughters go to church *every day.*

    Why does the leftist press continually make up completely fictional stories about Jenna and Barb partying every night like a couple of Manhattan socialites.

    Why doesn't somebody stop those lying gossip columnists!!!

  • Personally, humble me thought that the most "The Most Heartfelt Moment of the Night" was when that Iraqi Woman hugged the Mother who lost her Son in Iraq. Mainstream Media has harped (none stop...BTW) about the death of our Troops in Iraq, since they first project "5000 to 10,000 body bags", and claimed that our Troops were "bogged down" after a mere 3-days into Iraq. Such BS so-called reporting is why i just Voted in my first Presidential Election. i live in a remote Florida Swamp, am older than most parents, and first Registered to Vote just before the "Mid-Term" elections of 2002. If that tells you anything.

    Yes...i was duped by the Democrat Party and their Mainstream Media for a lot longer than most of you who are now reading this. Just look at the Dems' rebuttal last night...or, even their "pre-rebuttal" a few days ago. We all saw a "Speech For the Ages" delivered by our President Bush...and, then saw "PELOSI" and "REID" back again. They said nothing, because they had nothing to say, and the polls back humble me up on that statement.

  • I remember the first time I was compelled to vote. Two words: Saxby Chambliss

    By Blogger J. Gannon, at 7:13 PM  

  • i'm surprised that you can remember anything. BTW, your hatred is showing just below your imitating skirt. Libs are sooooooooooooooooooooo pathetic, *HUH*!!!

    BTW, Boston Globe, try doing some due diligence for a change...

  • I used to prefer the term Libs to Lefties as well. But lately, I've been using Lefties much more. Also, I prefer bonkers to pathetic. But I catch your drift. Keep on doing what you do.
