Bush to hand off Social Security to Senate

Bush won't present plan for Social Security. This from the Washington Post:

Bush is confident that he has convinced Americans that Social Security faces long-term fiscal problems, even if they remain skeptical of his plan for personal investment accounts. Now, aides say, he wants the Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the issue, to take the lead role in crafting a new Social Security program.

Frankly, I can't decide if Bush has simply given up the revamp effort he started, or if he is just looking for someone else to take the blame for the mess that has been created. It does seem quite irresponsible to me.
