A Candid Review

President Bush’s State of the Union on Wednesday:

Fixing Social Security permanently will require an open, candid review of the options.

White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan’s Press Gaggle on Thursday (about that day’s event featuring Bush in Fargo, ND):

Q Is every single person, both in the audience and on the panel, are they all supporters of the President’s plan?


MR. McCLELLAN: I don’t know.

Update: Salon reports Fargo residents suspected of being liberals were blacklisted from the event.
