Cute maneuver by the Dems--applauding when Bush lamented that Congress "did not act last year on my proposal to save Social Security." (The Republicans booed in response to the Dems' hijinx.)
But did anyone notice the Freudian slip that came next? For President Bush then noted (face flushed with teen-like eagerness to deliver the clever riposte) that the Social Security problem (such as it is) "is not going away"--whereupon the Republican side of the aisle rose triumphantly with even more raucous applause.
Yes: applauding the fact that problems aren't going away. I'm sure they didn't mean it.
