WaPo Presstitute VandeHei Rewrites History

Did you know that it was Congressional Republicans who killed Bush's crazy privatize social security plan?

That's what Presstitute Jim VandeHei says in today's Washington Post:

GOP Irritation At Bush Was Long Brewing

So when Bush sprang the Social Security plan on them, many Republicans balked. Eventually, congressional Republicans revolted and killed what Bush had trumpeted as the top domestic priority of his second term. Another common complaint about the White House is that it asked lawmakers to take politically risky votes and did not bother to provide cover when Democrats started attacking.

Here in the reality-based community, we know that it was the Democrats, and unrelenting pressure from liberals, and the liberal blogs, Joshua Micah Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo leading the charge, that killed Social Security privatization. But it makes a good phony point in the Congressional Rethugs feeble attempts to distance themselves from their incompetent idiot liar leader before the midterm elections in November. They killed his Social Security plan! He hasn't been leading them around by their petards since 2000. See, they all have functioning vertebrae!

In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
H. L. Mencken
