Profiles in Courage

The Democrats' agenda for 2006 has taken a powder. The party is refusing even to take a stand on the most important issue of the day: Iraq.

Now that's leadership, no?

George Bush wakes up every morning and asks, "What can I do today to make my country safer and better?"

Pelosi wakes up and asks, "What can I do today to make the president look bad?"

Want leadership? See Bush.

Want finger-pointing and complaining? See Pelosi.

Carol, the Democrats are following the Gingrich 1994 strategy. (Actually, the Republican party is allowing them to run it even better than Newt did in 1994.)

Republicans made Bill Clinton eat crow on his signature policy initiative (national health care). From 1993 on the Republicans didn't put forth an agenda. Instead they repeatedly focused on Democratic corruption (House check-kiting and Jim Wright) and attacking the President. By doing so, they made the electorate long for a change. It was not until six weeks before election that the Republicans put forward a nationalized agenda (the Contract with America).

If you can't see the parallels in the 1993 and 2005, you are in denial. Remember, the Contract with America came out in mid-September. We are a long ways out from mid-September, Carol.
