It's the way things have been. And we, in our efforts to try to change and make a better world, will have to pay a price.

Huh? Bush Explains How His Plan Will
Protect Social Security February 10, 2005 As his Social Security roadshow pulled into Tampa,
Fla., over the weekend, Bush was asked how his plan would ensure that Social Security won't run out of money down the road. Here, straight from the White House Web site, is the president's answer in its entirety:
"Because the -- all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculate, for example, is on the table; whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those -- changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be -- or closer delivered to what has been promised.
"Does that make any sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things that cause the -- like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate -- the benefits will rise based upon inflation, as opposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those -- if that growth is affected, it will help on the red."

Played for laughs everywhere, Mark Crispin Miller saw a darkness underlying the gaffe.
"There's an episode of Happy Days, where The Fonz has to say, `I'm
sorry' and can't do it. Same thing," Miller said.
"What's revealing about this is that Bush could not say, `Shame on
me' to save his life. That's a completely alien idea to him. "
"Bush is not an imbecile. He's not
a puppet. I think that Bush is a sociopathic personality. I think he's
incapable of empathy. He has an inordinate sense of his own entitlement,
and he's a very skilled manipulator. And in all the snickering about his
alleged idiocy, this is what a lot of people miss." The
