      "Folks, your Social Security is just not going to keep us with the cost of living. You know it. I know it.

      "What we've got to do is invest Social Security in America. Our nation is in full recovery. Have you seen the stock market?

      "The people doing well are the people who are invested. That could be you! That could be your future! We must not miss this great opportunity....

      "Let us invest in companies that specialize in rebuilding our nation's infrastructure! Let us invest in the companies that are successfully developing energy independence in America today!

      "Let us invest in companies that are creating jobs, both now and for the future. Let's invest in the companies that are creating new life-saving drugs. Let us invest in the innovative companies that develop the technologies that make our work easier and more efficient.

      "Together, we will watch our Social Security investments grow while the greatness of America grows!

      "And, when you retire, let us make certain you can fully enjoy the prosperous America that your Social Security has built. Investing together, we can create a great future, not only for us, but for all the generations that follow."

      Bush couldn't bring it; but President Obama can.
