Bush Calls This "Uniquely American"?!?
It's sad when our administration doesn't live in reality.
THE PRESIDENT: Good. Okay, Mary, tell us about yourself.
It's "fantastic" that someone has to work three jobs to survive in this country? Did I miss the memo here? Somebody please tell me I'm reading this wrong.
MS. MORNIN: Okay, I'm a divorced, single mother with three grown, adult children. I have one child, Robbie, who is mentally challenged, and I have two daughters.
THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?
MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.
THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)
MS. MORNIN: Not much. Not much.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, hopefully, this will help you get you sleep to know that when we talk about Social Security, nothing changes.
