Republican Assault on AARP
Laura Meckler of the Associated Press neatly details the Republican strategy for fighting AARP. Bush claims that the AARP has no dog in the privatization fight, that "nothing changes" for anyone over 55, while USA Next attacks AARP as a bunch of liberal, gay-loving, troop-haters: "Everywhere he goes, Bush promises the group's members they won't be touched by his plan, while his backers charge that AARP is out of touch and prone to scare tactics."
AARP is planning a series of advertisements targeted toward youth, while USA Next is preparing a slur-riddled letter. I fear USA Next's letter, which is the proper posture given their origin as a frightmail mill.
