    Come on, Sen. Kerry, what surprise? 

    January surprise? Sen. John Kerry needs to take a day off, get some rest and think before he speaks. In Columbus on Sunday, Kerry relied on a secondhand, unattributed account of a private speech President Bush gave in which Bush allegedly spoke of his desire to privatize Social Security. Bush has been saying during this campaign and in 2000 that he favors allowing younger Americans to take some of the money they pay into Social Security and invest it themselves. This is no surprise. Bush believes Americans can manage their money better than the government can manage it. (He may have point considering the way he has managed the country into the largest deficit in history.) If Kerry wants to speak on the subject, he should avoid the scare rhetoric and ask this question: Since today's retirees are paid by contributions from today's workers, who will pay the retirees if the workers keep their money to invest?
