Now that’s a winning political statement if I’ve ever saw one. Wonder why none of the Republican candidates thought to say it or is it that none of them has the nerve to say it? Democrats think they have a winner,"Stop the War Now." I guess these guy aren't concerned with winning anything except winning an American election at any cost.
Well since 2008 is going to be all about the war somebody had better come up with something quick or measuring drapes for the offices in Congress wouldn’t be the only measuring that Democrats will be doing. (If you know what I mean!) Democrats are already planning their 2008 offensive against Republicans while the President is attempting to wrangle cats for a cattle drive. Plainly spoken we don’t need comprehensive immigration reform Republicans what we need is comprehensive GOP reform!
Democrats voted for this war argued for it and now are attempting to run away from it now that a strong anti-war movement has risen in their netroots driven by moveon.org. This is extremely hypocritical of Democrats but highly political efficient because Democrats don’t seem to mind hypocrisy in their own ranks. See below.
While President Bush is attempt to be the front man for Immigration Reform or Amnesty for illegal aliens his Democrats compatriots are sharpening knives to insert into his political back regarding the war in Iraq. Yep going to make short work of him!
Thus making the Immigration alliance between he and his Democrat co-conspirers the shortest cease fire ever in the history of the Red State Blue State Divide between Democrats who hold legislative power and a lone Republican President who has ineptly shot himself in the foot, distancing himself from his own party, with divisive language aimed at Conservatives who find it wise to proceed with caution whenever Senator Ted Kennedy is involved comprehensively in anything.
That not withstanding, a plot is a foot in Congress to continue to press for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq Mr. Bush. "On Iraq, we're going to hold the president's feet to the fire," said Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, saying debate would start in two weeks time.
In fact in two weeks Democrats plan a full court press against the White house regarding the war. Just a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to keep Republicans busy and on the defensive while Democrats gain momentum for taking the White house in 2008.
I thought I’d tell you Mr. Bush since your “spidey senses” don’t seem to be working all that well and your political advisers are either on vacation or Sen. Carl Levin, Mich. (D), chairman of the Armed Services Committee is holding them hostage along with Joint Chief of Staff General Peter Pace.
Instead of drawing down on Republicans President Bush, and attempting to change minds regarding legislation that you’re attempting to force though Congress and into law, maybe you should be doing the same strategizing, with Republicans, as the Democrats are doing against you. Democrats are about to wage various on-slots against your Presidency for the time that you have remaining. You can’t say that you haven’t been warned!
Democrats have stated that they will challenge the White House with new withdrawal timelines, troop readiness issues and the curtailing of the president's authority to continue the War.
Democrat Majority leader Harry Reid admits that Democrats made some mistakes in their first attempt to cut and run from Iraq but Reid acknowledges that they have a new and better plan this time.
The Democrat new attempt will be attached to an authorization bill a measure that approves $649 billion in military spending, not a war budget in support of the troops. So effectively Democrats can attack the war without giving the appearance that they are actually cutting off funds to the troops. What do you have in response Mr. President? …Nothing? I thought so!
Senator Reid would also call for debate on an amendment which sets a goal for combat troop withdrawals by the end of March 2008. Anything from across the aisle Mr. Bush? Yeah… I didn’t think so!
Hello is anyone in the White house getting this? You’re worried about Comprehensive Immigration reform and the Democrats are going to Comprehensively Reform the Presidency of the United States of America by getting their candidate elected. They’re going to do it by keeping the Bush administration hunkered down, while attempting to keep a Democratic controlled Congress from undermining the war effort. Somebody’s not seeing the big picture here Republicans. (Where’s Karl Rove when you need him?)
First it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi laying out the plan for Republican destruction and now it’s Reid announcing their intent to buffalo the Republicans. They must figure that Republicans are so stupid that they can tell them what they intend to do and just do it.
Come on guys the Trent Lott, BILL FRIST 1866 Marquis of Queensbury Rules of politics are over. Republicans need some real political communicaters, strategist and fighters if Republicans are going to salvage themselves for the 2008 and 2010 elections.
Stopping the Amnesty bill is a good start Republicans but if protecting America’s borders and representing Republican values are jobs that you as Americans won’t do then please step down or let it be known that you feel that you can no longer serve as a Republican in the House, Senate or White house and I’m sure that Republicans will replace you with someone who will do the work that you an American representative won’t do.
Any ways, Its time you Republicans start listening to your netroots! Judging by the 2006 fiasco and the political chaos that the GOP now finds itself in, it couldn’t hurt.
You guys are in some serious need of some Republican political muscle. Unfortunately that’s a job that Republicans who are trying to mimic Democrats or compassion Conservatives just won’t do!
