one victory (?)

Sunday was the 70th birthday for Social Security. Krugman revisits the Bush attempt to destroy it
by misrepresenting its goals, lying about the facts and abusing its control of government agencies.
As Krugman notes, that is standard operating procedure for the de facto president. It worked in leading us into Iraq and giving tax cuts to the wealthy; I hope the fact that the administration has fallen silent on Social Security means that it has dodged the bullet.
