Krugman: "The trustees' report has always been a very useful document, providing a wealth of information. But this year, more than ever before, it will have to be read with an eye to the ways it will try to mislead." [NYT]

Hey, don't put anything past Bush. He's already proved that he can lie, and lie well. He's proved that he can get any part of the government to lie and alter documents and reports for him. Why stop now.

This is FUNNY: "MS. WEBSTER: And I chose the safe plan, government bonds. (Laughter.)
THE PRESIDENT: That's all right. Well, not so safe, unless we fix the deficit. But other than that -- (laughter). We're fixing the deficit. (Applause.)" I LOVE these scripted town-hall meetings!!! [Kos] [Atrios] [ThinkProgress]

The best was Obama though: ""It is puzzling to me that we are even having this debate about whether Social Security is good or not for African-Americans," said Obama, an Illinois Democrat. "I frankly found the statement that the president made somewhat offensive." [Tribune]

Unworthy nominees: "Mr. Myers, Mr. Boyle, and Mr. Griffith were chosen for their archconservative political views, not their qualifications for the bench. No impartial person interested in choosing only the best possible judges would have put them at the top of the list. The federal judiciary is one of the cornerstones of American government - one of the three branches the nation's founders created, and set against one another, to guide the nation and keep it free. Surely this vital institution deserves better." [NYT] [Kos]
