A Little Bit Of Truth

Atrios, Kos, and many other member of the liberal blogosphere caught this interesting exchange in one of Bush's recent town hall meetings. You know those meetings, where only supporters are let in and everyone signs a loyalty pledge; they are about as real as those late night infomercials. Well, apparently they got slightly off topic for a few moments and accidently reached a bit of truth. From the White House:
THE PRESIDENT: Let me ask you something about the Thrift Savings Plan. This is a Thrift Savings Plan that has a mix of stocks and bonds?

MS. WEBSTER: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Now, how hard was that to learn how to do that?

MS. WEBSTER: And I chose the safe plan, government bonds. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: That's all right. Well, not so safe, unless we fix the deficit. But other than that -- (laughter). We're fixing the deficit. (Applause.)
So far we haven't seen any evidence of "we're fixing it", only "we're breaking it", but other than that...
