According to an ABC News story tonight, the Bush Administration "doesn't understand" why their social security agenda isn't more popular with seniors, who won't be affected by any changes to the system.
They don't understand because they are conservatives- people who believe in looking out for number one, that if it doesn't hurt me then I don't care . Conservatives are notoriously short-sighted.
They can't fathom that our older generation might want their children and grandchildren to have what they have. The Greatest Generation is patriotic and doesn't delight in the idea of fucking over the people they will leave behind.
See, as Anne Frank reminded us, the majority of people are good at heart.
The Bush Administration cannot understand this.
