Privatize Social Security? For GOP, It's A No-Boehner


It's bad enough that the idea recurs repeatedly in the GOP camp. It's still worse that John Boehner can't express himself worth a damn:


Asked whether partial privatization of Social Security, which Republicans pushed unsuccessfully in 2005, would be part of a GOP agenda, he twice replied, "I have no idea." 

Later, he called back to clarify, saying that what he meant to say was that, until Republicans complete their process of soliciting ideas from the American people, there will be no answer to that question. "We're not going to prejudge what's going to come out of this listening project." 


No, he got it right the first time: he has no idea. If this is the strategy that is intended to take back the House in November, I say, bring it on.
