Shorter George W. Bush

He babbled on today about the economy and Social Security. Here's my shorter version:

Putting money in the hands of Americans through tax cuts is important to the economy. Keeping money out of the hands of Americans from Social Security is important to avoid future deficits.

There you have it! Letting rich people have money: good. Letting poor people have money: bad. Republicanism in a nutshell.

I also wonder if the Labor Department and the other government agencies reporting on the economy are just flat-out lying at this point--the statistics W cites don't seem to have any link to reality that I can see.
