One of the obstacles the president has found in trying to sell his Social Security privatization is that a primary target group in the propaganda wars is voters under thirty, who voted strongly for Kerry and subsequently have proven resistant to Bush's sales pitch.
Well, if legal voters won't buy what you're selling, I suppose the next step is to turn to the grade school set. That's exactly what they've done. According to the New York Times, a nine-year-old presidential trivia expert is now on board and will spend his spring break barnstorming with Progress for America. (That's the same group Josh Marshall reports has also bought a Social Security Trustee to help sell the scheme.)
I have no doubt that he is a very bright boy. Nevertheless, this just reeks of exploitation.
