African-Americans and the Bush Social Security Plan

January 13, 2005

Only days after the Armstrong Williams paid-for-pundit debacle, President Bush used his January 12 "town hall meeting" to once again reach out to African-Americans. this time on his Social Security privatization plan.
With a hand-picked audience of supporters present on stage and in the Washington DC audience, Bush was on the top of his game:

"Another interesting idea...is a personal savings account...which can't be used to bet on the lottery, or a dice game, or the track.
"Secondly, the interesting -- there's a -- African American males die sooner than other males do, which means the system is inherently unfair to a certain group of people."

As with father Bush 41 before him, George W. Bush apparently cares about all American, even the "brown ones."

  1. I watched his 'black males die sooner'comment on the news, good lord was that awkward looking.
    I wonder what he would of said to group of hispanics as far as what their accounts 'couldn't be used for'... to fix up your low rider, to buy tequila, to finance a coke deal.
    'no dice games' an insult to all blacks, what an ignoramous.

  2. OMG. They cannot let this man operate without a script. I wonder if any of the black GOP shuffle n jiving members of Project 21 were there to cheer Bush on.
