As the stock market continues to dwindle alarmingly, remember how hot Bush was about the idea of privatizing social security?
Not hearing so much about that.

It was a spectacular flop: a president making dozens of fruitless
trips around the country to build support for a plan his own party’s
leadership refused to accept.
But President Bush’s failed push to privatize Social Security has not deterred John McCain from putting forward the same idea – and from risking a similar political disaster.
