... they need to change their rhetoric.

A Democratic Leader needs to get on TV and say:

"You ever notice how every time Bush and the GOP are in trouble, you can tune to 5 different political pundits on TV and hear the exact same excuses in the exact same words?"

And then go on to explain why that is.

"You ever wonder why George Bush was happy to connect Saddam Hussein with 9-11, even though there was simply no connection, but then be perfectly willing to sell our ports to the UAE, who had at least a tangential connection to 9-11."

And then go on to explain that the Iraq war was not about terrorism and the UAE deal proves it.

"Ever wonder how the party of "fiscal responsibility" can preside over the largest rise in Federal debt over the shortest period of time in our history?"

And then go on to explain that the Iraq war only accounts for about 10% of that 2-trillion plus rise in debt.

The problem is our (Dem) politicians either:

1) are not capable of formulating the simple rhetoric needed to tell the simple truth, or
2) are afraid of telling the simple truth or
3) are part of the problem and cannot be part of the solution.

Ya'll figure it out, I've pretty much given up.
