It's simple: Democrats don't have a voice!


Boston Globe: Democrats struggle to find one voice on Iraq

Excerpt:

"WASHINGTON -- House and Senate Democrats, sensing an opportunity in President Bush's sagging poll numbers and an increasingly unpopular war, have held a series of long, closed-door meetings over the past several weeks to find a common position and a sharpened political message on the Iraq War.

Some participants in the meetings said Bush's failure to articulate an exit strategy in his speech on Tuesday night only underscored the need for Democrats to devise their position. But they also acknowledged that within the party, there are fundamentally different views on the war." (end)

The fundamental problem with the Democratic Party why they can't come to a consenses about Iraq is simple: They don't have a position on anything! Especially if they don't see it as advantageous to their real cause: Get back in power.

If you've noticed the Democrats are largely a "frog party", that is they "leap" from one issue to another SO LONG as it looks bad for the present administration. After all that is what it all about - making Bush look bad, take advantage of it, and then use that to gain seats in the upcoming 2006 elections and ultimately the Presidency in 2008.

But the problem with leaping is the appearance of instability. Thus in 2004 you have your candidate for President making statements like:

"I did vote for the 87 Billion, before I voted against it." - John Kerry.

That statement gained him the "flip-flopper" lable that stuck throughout the campaign and ultimately his defeat on November 2nd.

When you ask anyone about their most glaring criticism of a politician it's "They would do anything, say anything for a vote". Whether the Democrats know it or not; or more likely they are oblivious to it; that's the impression they are giving now.

President Bush won the 2004 election because more than anything, he didn't appear to say anything to get a vote and then "flip" to something else just because polls indicated it was popular with voters. Whether or not an individual voter liked Bush or his policies or not, I believe the main reason 68 million people voted for him was the simple and clear fact that he isn't the typical politician.

He isn't swayed by polls - even if they are down at this point. Heck after the all out MSM, MoveOn, Michael Moore blitzkrieg last year it's an astounding testimony to this truth that he is still in office. That's what really kills the Democrats. They are besides themselves right now with the question, "How in the heck it he doing it?" "What do we have to do?

To use the an overused phrase: "They don't get it".

As long as the Democratic Party is viewed as schizophrenic, with no focus or identity, position or voice, they will remain on the ropes and out of power.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
