03/17/2005: Plan? What plan?
Think Progress catches the Bush administration in a contradiction:
“I have not laid out a plan yet, intentionally.”
– President Bush, 3/16/05
“President Bush’s plan allows you to make a decision to put your money in a different kind of prudent investment, with the potential for receiving higher pay-outs.”
– White House press release, “Fact Sheet: Setting the Record Straight,” 2/3/05
President Bush wouldn't recognize a cunning plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord singing "Cunning plans are here again."
(Apologies to Rowan Atkinson; hat tip to Brad DeLong.)
