  • All I can say is that this memo is a recipe for disaster.

    If the Republicans think that they can ignore all domestic issues and run on a fear caimpaign again, they are smoking a lot of crack.

    Hopefully we will get the other page of the memo that talks about domestic policy, because running on a foriegn policy platform that is weak and damaged, just does not make good sense to me. I can cleary see them wanting to point out that America defends liberty and we need strong national security and blah blah blah, but they need to talk about getting back to real convserative politics, things like fiscal responsibility and economic expansion.

    We will see.

    help me – in the Senate its Kerry pushing the resolution. Is it the GOP thats pushed it in the House?

    I’m amused by this. Dale, I hope they keep at it, so that we’ll have some real checks and balances in the system.

    Read this line carefully: “It is imperative during this debate that we re-examine the conditions that required the United States to take military action in Afghanistan and Iraq in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001.”

    “..the conditions that required the US to take military action…in the aftermath of.. September 11, 2001.” This does not state verbatim that Iraq was a retalliation for 9/11, but it links them through implication. As if to say without 9/11, we might not have needed to invade Iraq–it’s pretty clear that was going to happen either way.

    If the Republicans keep campaigning on Iraq, the Democrats should be campaigning on Katrina. Security begins at home.

    Does anyone think anyone is going to change their mind about anything because of this debate?

    Its all rhetoric! There is NOTHING substantive in that memo. So what you will here from them is a week of ignoramous rhetoric bleating from the podiums. Might as well play John Philip Sousa in the back ground. Meanwhile Rome burns as Bush fiddles.
