We gotta believe there are a bunch of K St. Republican operatives here in Washington who wish "W" would go into hibernation for the next week.
Here at the Curmudgeon, we hope the President keeps on talking everyday about his views of the war in Iraq, terrorism and Democrats.
The more he talks, the better Dems will fare next Tuesday.
Yesterday, Bush said "the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: the terrorists win and America loses." Umm-hmm. Is that right? Well, now, we've had four years of war in Iraq led by the Republicans and we're getting our ass kicked. All we've accomplished is to destroy the country. We have no plan for "victory." Hell, we haven't even defined what "victory" is.
Cheney's useful too. He still talks about how the 9/11 terrorists had ties with Iraq. And then there's this jewel: Cheney thinks the insurgents in Iraq are trying to influence the election: "It's my belief that they're very sensitive fo the fact that we've got an election scheduled" and they're trying to "break the will of the American people."
That could be true, but here's some news for you Dick: if we were "winning" the war--or even just "making progress" as you say, then insurgents wouldn't be able to "influence" our elections. And when the President ordered troops into Baghdad (and out of other troubled regions) to quell sectarian violence a few weeks before the election, just what was he trying to influence?
Keep talking boys.
