House first on Social Security, Rove says (at 'college' repub rally)
Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove told a group of college students and lobbyists yesterday that the House will move a Social Security reform bill before the Senate will.
....
He made his remarks during an afternoon rally of Students for Saving Social Security, according to a source in attendance. President Bush and Treasury Secretary John Snow also addressed the rally, which was held at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
....
For his part, Bush joked with the 200 or so college students and lobbyists in attendance during his speech, the source said.

The president told the assembled guests that groups like MoveOn-dot-something have been attending congressional town-hall meetings and raising cane about Social Security reform. Meanwhile, Bush said, our folks have been working on changing the entitlement system, the source wrote in an e-mail.

In addition to the college students, lobbyists from COMPASS, the Business Roundtable, the National Association of Manufacturers, Americas Community Bankers, 60-Plus, the Financial Services Forum and the Financial Services Roundtable were all in attendance.

3. AARP is a new
bush enemy on SS..why didn't he mention them?

AARP was always so blatantly bi-partisan until bush started trying to Screw Americans out of their SS. Now they are hyperactive against bush putting the screws to seniors.

I want bush to go up in flames out there on the 3rd rail..arrogant ASSWIPE!
