    wanted. He decided to "reward" his galpal Harriet by sticking her incompetent ass on the USSC (and knowing that she would work on his behalf night and day). It never crossed his mind that he wouldn't get his way. Bush looks at the entire country the way he looked at the Latina women who cleaned his house: there for his pleasure.

      It's worth remembering that the Bushies batted pretty close to 1.000 for about 3 1/2 years, between 9/11 and early 2005. What finally slowed them down was pursuing the RW holy grail of SS privatization. They found out how appropriate that the "third rail" metaphor really is.

      Katrina woke up the nation and the media, but it was SS privatization that woke up the Democrats.

      Thanks to the internet, bullshit now travels at the speed of light.

        The idea of privatization is so evil that nearly all Democrats agree on it.  It's one of those issues where everyone can get together.  

        Additionally, I wouldn't be surprised if Wall Street has the same level of trust with the public as congress- very little.

          In 2005? Yes. 2013? I wouldn't trust a room full of Democrats with Social Security any more than I'd trust a pack of (blue) dogs in a room with a cheeseburger.
