Instapundit points to a post by JustOneMinute about a Paul Krugman article - whew! For those of you who don't know, future Weekly Jackass Krugman is the economic equivalent of Maureen Dowd - his basic gig is to take some economic news, problem, or event and twist things around until Bush is to blame for it. This week, he laughingly insists that the pro-privatization people 'invented' the Social Security crisis. I join with JustOneMinute in asking Krugman if he has forgotten yet another Al Gore innovation - the 'lockbox'...
Speaking of Social Security, if this piece in the Washington Times is true, Bush has made it his number one second-term domestic priority (he's talking about four percent of the payroll tax as the amount that could be privatized). Man, I love this President! (tip of the hat to Jayson at PoliPundit)...
You need to read the whole article, but you may have to register first, so here's the UN dishonor roll from the WSJ's OpinionJournal (again, via Jayson at PoliPundit):
� Failing to enforce 17 resolutions against Saddam, tolerating his ejection of U.N. weapons inspectors, and even enabling him to stay in power by looking the other way as he exploited Oil for Food.
� Failing to use U.N. peacekeepers already in place to stop the Rwanda genocide in 1994, and, worse,
handing overthousands of Bosnian Muslim men for slaughter by the Serbs at Srebrenica in 1995.
� Failing to act in Kosovo in 1999, amid the threat of a Russian veto, leaving NATO the task of preventing a bloody civil war on European soil.
� As recently as this year, failing to stop the massacre of African Muslims in Sudan's Darfur province.
� And failing even to bring up for formal debate, let alone action, North Korean and Iranian violations of non-proliferation agreements.
