What's with this 60 days in 60 cities crap?

Watch 'n Wait: I agree the Salvation Army case is enough to stand your hair on end. It is obvious that under the Bush Administration they are going all out to end the separation of church and state. But what can we expect when half the country or so are religious fundamentalists? The Europeans think we are stark raving mad when it comes to religion - and they are right.

But what is with this Bush 60 days in 60 cities nonsense. It is perfectly clear already that his attempt to creat private accounts in lieu of Social Security is doomed to fail. So why is he persisting in this all out attempt to convince people who are already not convinced, and not at all likely to be convinced? I believe it has nothing to do with Social Security but is in fact just a smokescreen to keep our little minds off the failures in Afghanistan and Iraq, the collapse of the American economy, the multiple war crimes, the 34 or more scandals that have so far been stonewalled, and etc. They have to know by now that their Social Security scam is not going to fly, at least not in any foreseeable future. So why continue?
Obfuscation, that's why.

Eschew Obfuscation. Fat chance with this bunch of utter loonies. Please wake me when the nightmare is over.
