"Bush wasn't planting seeds to meddle with 401k's."

And you think Obama is? Why do you think so?

"On the contrary he wanted to give people MORE control over their retirement funds."

As I recall Bush wanted to eliminate the safety net by privatizing social security. That way, or so the logic went, people could have IRAs and 401ks. He never seemed to notice that those things already existed.
