  •  The Press Democrat Licks Bush: (4.00)
    "Bush: Cut benefits to save Social Security"

    What bullshit. I know the "Cut benefits" is something that Bush would never admit to. But the paper adding "to save Social Security" is a bunch of crap. It gives credence to the assertion that Bush is actually SAVING Social Security with his actions.

    The accurate headline would have read:

    "Bush: Cut benefits to Destroy Social Security"

    Damn lib media!!

    •  Texas Headline (none)
      My Texas town (70,000 population) newspaper headline: BUSH: CHANGE SOCIAL SECURITY.  The article was quite extensive, regurgitating the so-called press conference topics, but only devoted about two small paragraphs to opposing views. What do you expect in Bush territority?  However, what struck me about the press conference was Bush's complete lack of answers for most all questions.  He didn't have any answers for:  an exit strategy for Iraq; the high price of gas; why Americans are so opposed to his privatization of Social Security; why the majority of Americans think he is not doing a good job as President; and most other questions.  Yet the media whores raved about how well he did? I want what they're drinking!
