Bush and his propaganda
Before President Bush went to Rochester, NY to speak on Social Security, the White House sent out a memo to local organizations to solicit
several types of people "who he would like to visit with" — including a young worker who "knows that [Social Security] could run out before they retire," a young couple with children who like "the idea of leaving something behind to the family" and a single parent who believes Bush's proposal for individual investment accounts "would provide more retirement options and security" than the current system.
I don't mind the use of the "bully pulpit", yet I equate carefully orchestrated choreography as disingenuous at least and pure propaganda at its worst. Honest debate and careful consideration of alternative plans are left out.
I don't believe the word "partisanship" is found in the Constitution.
