Lets look at all the points

Chris Cerruti really is "Missing the point," May 21, 2005
Mr. Levein's "Democrats shift with political winds" missed the point, which is tough to do after ranting for 600 words. All politicians shift with political winds. Besides, both sides of the aisle agree Social Security has issues to be addressed. They disagree on, more than anything, redirecting Social Security monies to private accounts. That is the issue to discuss, not out of context quotes.
Well, the Senate cannot discuss the issue because the Democrats will not open discussions until the President takes voluntary private accounts off the table. Controlling what issues will be discussed before the discussion starts, limits choices. Has everyone noticed that President Bush says what he is going to do, and then does it. Political winds are not that strong in the Whitehouse. The President spends more time leading than sampling the political wind.
