Change in Tone

My latest AmSpec column assesses last night's Presidential press conference.

I find it frustrating, yet slightly humorous, that pundits like yourself, continue to underestimate GW. Other than the views you glean from "insiders" what that GW said last night would lead you to write that personal savings accounts, carved out of Social Security contributions, are dead in the water? GW never said that, and it's too important and integral to be dead in the water. GW, and anyone w/half a brain knows that there is absolutely no fix w/out privatizing part of the giant Ponzi scheme of social security. Stop w/the herd mentality and be a voice for true reform.

john,
i think you are doing your job as an objective observer if a conservative thinks you are anti-Bush.

I personally think that the private accounts while ideal possibly are going to be very hard to effect. There are so many unanswered questions. Example: Does one have to invest yearly or how often? Trust me, people will have an inclination to invest in market when it is HIGH and fear it when it is LOW. can we educate a whole generation that the stock market is a guarantee but ONLY after many years?
