Social Security Exit Plan? - Macsmind "Kool-Aid Article of the Day".

Exit strategy on Social Security sought

Once again disinformation from the paper who made it a household word. Let's dissect the disinformation in this story.

First with the last paragraph which is totally misleading:

"Democrats are unapologetic. Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said voters increasingly see Bush as the impediment to a compromise because the president has stubbornly stuck by a partial privatization proposal that has never gained broad public support."

Wrong! Maybe in WP polls, but a Zogby poll taken recently showed great support for private accounts, especially those polled under 30 (66 percent to 23 percent). The numbers do drop the older the respondent:

Repondents between 30 and 50 = 58 percent versus 37 percent.

The respondents who oppose are of course those over 65 who wouldn't participate anyway.

I find this omission about how polls are conducted by Zogby interesting:

"The thing that is compelling in this poll is that this is the response you get when you use a positive approach on Social Security reform," Mr. Zogby said. "If you use the 'Chicken Little, sky-is-falling' approach, then voters understand that something has to be done, but don't see the connection between personal accounts and fundamental reform of Social Security."

Now you didn't see this poll in the MSM - they ignored it. But the support IS there. Democrats simply want to obstruct it. The point is that we are continually getting these "breaking stories" of "dissension in the ranks" among the GOP and "exit strategies". The pure and simple fact is that the President's scolding of the Democrats the other night is only the beginning of the assault on this misinformation put out by the WP, and MSM.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
