Fake Crisis

Sam Rosenfeld says regarding the Dem statement on social security:

What’s missing, above all else, is a strong and clear claim that this is a phony crisis -- something trumped up by the GOP. If the White House manages to win the argument that a real Social Security crisis exists, it seems likely that Democratic piddling over the details isn’t going to make any difference. Once there's agreement that something needs to be done to address a crisis, it'll be done on the president's terms.

Exactly right. Republicans are in charge. Unless the Democrats can completely overturn the fake idea that there's need for change this will be George Bush's change.
