    Discuss... and if you can, a little more than "It sucked!" or "It was great!" would be nice.

    Yup this guy had a better idea
    so did Nancy

    Unbelievable

    I thought the part when the Mom and Dad, of the fallen soldier, hugged the daughter, whose father was killed in Persian Gulf,
    having a moment, was the strongest.
    Striking was when she held her purple finger.

    Can't deny that, that was an American moment.
    Everyone ought to be proud.

    The President of the United States spoke, and I listened....did YOU? I must be getting old! Social Security is dead, something new to hope for I guess. I am not going to worry about it since I make my own decisions on retirement...and I feel sorry for those who rely on wishfull thinking. Grow up!
    Just go for it!

    I work nights so i didn't get to to see it. Just caught him introducing the mother and father and telling their story though. Things got kinda dusty i must admit. A very emotional moment.

    I don't know enough on the whole social security thing to offer a valid opinion....what G-dub was saying made a lot of sense...but I really wanted to hear what the Democrats would say about it....their response was awful...didn't convey their viewpoints on the subject at all...

    I heard one arguement is that they think the president is making too big a deal out of it, so they didn't want to dwell on it...but then they should have said that, and told me why it isn't a big deal...

    O well, I guess I need to research the issue myself, damn it!

    Bush is right on social security...Higher benefits plus longer lives is all you need to think about when looking to overhaul an antiquated system...

    SS isn't the real issue, though. The real issue is that our concept of retirement isn't exactly realistic anymore, particularly for those of us under 40. The idea of having a semi-vacation lifestyle when I'm in my mid-60s sure is attractive, but it's just not going to happen. I have a suspicion that most people in my age bracket will have to work well into their 70s, if not beyond that. Health care and housing become obscenely expensive once a person is no longer of sound body.

    The SS system was never designed to cope with people taking 20-year vacations.

    It was touching, but did the parent's son HAVE to die? Did that daughter HAVE to lose her dad?

    If the president did HIS job correctly and not rush the troops into a war that had no plan, maybe that touching moment may not have ever happend. And over 1,500 families wouldn't be grieving RIGHT NOW.

    Bush is a douche and a fraud. Another 4 years of that idiot will make America look bad even worse.

    Did you even watch, Eddymon? That woman was an Iraqi. Her father was assassinated by Saddam. She was hugging the parents of the fallen soldier out of appreciation for what he did for her country.
