From the moron's press conference in Kansas today. He actually took questions from audience members. He didn't exactly answer them. But he shore did try!

WOMAN IN AUDIENCE: 'I don't really understand. How is it the new plan
going to fix the problem?'

Verbatim response: PRESIDENT BUSH:

'Because the -- all which is on the table begins to address the big

cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculated, 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

that 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, supposed 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.'

Forward this to others -- so they, too, can understand...
