All Hail! King George The Empty!

Sourcing CNN

Bush said Social Security, on its current path, is "headed toward bankruptcy,"

empty threat...

...and he urged Congress to "pass reforms that solve the financial problems of Social Security once and for all."

empty words...

He said the best way of reaching that goal is through a government-run program of "voluntary personal retirement accounts"

empty accounts...

Here is why personal accounts are a better deal: Your money will grow, over time, at a greater rate than anything the current system can deliver," Bush said.

At the same time, he said, "I have a message for every American who is 55 or older: Do not let anyone mislead you. For you, the Social Security system will not change in any way

empty promises...

It's hard to get excited about a speech given by King George the Empty.

After all, after the last one he gave, his father came out, and said that he didn't mean any of it.

Now how empty is that?
