No Courage

Before the idea that Bush is "courageous," "bold," or "daring" for trying to privatize Social Security plants itself firmly in the public mind, I want to take the contrary position: he is a cowardly little shit. If he was really courageous, he would: 1. stop lying to the American people about the "crisis" he's trying to address; 2. hint to the American people that the programs he's proposing have serious costs; 3. put tax increases on the table. It's not courageous to attempt to dupe the citizenry, it's contemptuous.

The effort to brand Bush "courageous" brings to mind Bill Maher's comments about the 9/11 terrorists: is it really courageous to undermine the most effective and efficient government program in history?
