Still not falling for it

Maybe the average American isn’t as gullible as I’d thought:

For months, President Bush has been touting his agenda of privatization and benefit cuts as a way to strengthening Social Security. He even created a website dedicated to promoting his proposals called strengtheningsocialsecurity.gov. The American people aren�t buying it. From the WSJ this morning:

[O]nly 36% of all adults say Mr. Bush�s comments on saving and strengthening Social Security are his real motives for changing the program, while 49% believe his real agenda is to dismantle it.

Overall, 59 percent of Americans disapprove of Bush�s position on Social Security. Nevertheless, the White House insists their efforts on Social Security have been a great success.
