"Does That Make Any Sense to You?": Dumbyass Explains Social Security

From the Bushism of the Day By Jacob Weisberg"
"Because the—all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculate, for example, is on the table; whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those—changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be—or closer delivered to what has been promised. Does that make any sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things that cause the—like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate—the benefits will rise based upon inflation, as opposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those—if that growth is affected, it will help on the red."—Explaining his plan to save Social Security, Tampa, Fla., Feb. 4, 2005
Does anybody in the world know what in the bejeezus this idiot is talking about? Good Lord, he is dumber than a doorknob. A doorknob could do theoretical physics compared to him, and that is more obviously true than anything this madministration has ever uttered in its too-long, ignominous history. If this is, indeed, what is in dumbyass's brain, it obviously sucks being him.

UPDATE: Reggie's astute translation of dumbyass's "thoughts" on Social Security deserved to be brought upstairs and into the light.
You know darn well that if Bush could articulate his thoughts on Social Security honestly it would go something like this:

"Well, the people who bought this office for me have been trying to get rid of 'entitlement' programs for years, so it doesn't really matter what crap comes out of my mouth, so long as it sounds convincing enough to dupe the people into sabotaging social security. Hell, rich people, investment bankers, anyone with a six-figure income will benefit, and those are the only people who really matter, right?"
