Krugman Drops the L-Bomb 

And 'bout damn time, some might say.

(via NYT) (aw, go ahead and register already--otherwise how are you going to protest when they go to Pay-for-Pontificating in September?)

Many pundits and editorial boards still give Mr. Bush credit for trying to "reform" Social Security. In fact, Mr. Bush came to bury Social Security, not to save it. Over time, the Bush plan would have transformed Social Security from a social insurance program into a mutual fund, with nothing except a name in common with the system F.D.R. created.

In addition to misrepresenting his goals, Mr. Bush repeatedly lied about the current system. Oh, I'm sorry - was that a rude thing to say? Still, the fact is that Mr. Bush repeatedly said things that were demonstrably false and that his staff must have known were false. The falsehoods ranged from his claim..."
After which he deliniates a number of prevarications, on a wide range of subjects, pretty well defined as "every time Dear Leader flaps his lips" which is no more than the plain truth, innit now?
