Dan Bartlett, was on Hardball last night and said that he wants to know how the Democrats plan to get out of Iraq. I would turn that question back on him and ask what is the Republican plan for getting out of Iraq.Well, I thought that was a rather good way to handle it; flipping the question. Certainly, the folks of the GOP use that political trick all the time. But then I got to thinking.
If I were to begin a plan to fix the Iraq mess, the initial phases would be to replace all civilian military leaders and those military leaders loyal to W. But that is besides the point. The main reason why the GOP asks such questions is to throw a political drape over the real problem, that they have no plan themselves.
So, I think the minds of the blogisphere might be well suited to help opponents of the GOP win arguments by coming up with pithy statements to help sway the minds of thinking Americans when ever some republican "frightwing" puppet tries to suggest that the Democrats would be bad for America. This leads me to today's contest...drum roll please...
