Karl Rove: The net will save the Bush Social Security Scheme

By None:

According to a UPI story, presidential brain Karl Rove believes that an online grassroots organizing effort by young Republicans is going to salvage the president's scheme to privatize Social Security.

White House adviser Karl Rove said in a recent conference call that Internet lobbying by young grassroots Republicans will make or break the Bush administration's proposals to revamp the pension program...

"If the grassroots are heard from on this, there will be change," Rove said. "If not, we will not have change. The use of the Internet and of other, creative ideas, will make this message heard."

Of course, so far, all the net activism on Social Security has been on the left side of the aisle. See ThereIsNoCrisis.com for one good example.
