Surrender Monkey Tuesday

The Surrender Monkey's boozehound nephew has made an appearence to herald in the new Democratic appeasement and surrender plan, as spoke by the New York Times

After being outmaneuvered in the politics of national security in the last two (WT: Two?)elections, Democrats say they are determined not to cede the issue this year and are working to cast President Bush as having diminished the nation’s safety.

“They are not Swift boating us on security,” said Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader in the House.

Seeking to counter White House efforts to turn the reported terrorist plot in Britain to Republican advantage, Democrats are using the arrests of the suspects to try to show Americans how the war in Iraq has fueled Islamic radicalism and distracted Mr. Bush and the Republican Congress from shoring up security at home. They say they intend to drive that message home as the nation observes the coming anniversaries of Hurricane Katrina and the Sept. 11 attacks.

But they are not waiting. A video Monday on the Web site of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee showed footage of Osama bin Laden, referred to an increase in terror attacks, highlighted illegal immigration and pointed out the nuclear aspirations of Iran and North Korea.

“Feel safer?” it concludes. “Vote for change.”

Ok, I'm reading, I'm reading….wait a moment, I see absolutely no plan to deal with national security from the Democrats. Just more of the "we're not them" rhetoric. Just ignore the votes against the Patriot Act, the constant yammering and complaints over every measure taken to protect the country, and that they see the fake "Global Warming as caused by Man" issue as more important then terrorism. Heck, nationalized health care is more important to them. Don't believe me?

Franknable: Wouldn't more people vote Democratic if definition of security was more encompassing than safety from terrorism and "threats" of terrorism? Wouldn't it be more appealing to include the following in a definition of security?

* Adequate healthcare for all Americans (terrorists care why?)

* Better educational opportunities, including higher education for all Americans (so stop blocking school vouchers)

* Living wage laws for all Americans (learn a f'ing skill, moron)

* More focus on freedoms and liberty and elimination of repressive laws which criminalize behavior that doesn't harm anyone (drugs, prostitution, gambling) (yup, cause drugs, prostitution, and gambling never harmed anyone)

* Incentives for corporations to keep more jobs HERE (ever heard of insourcing? And giving breaks to corporations? How un-progressive!)

* Tax policies that are fair and elimination of unfair (regressive taxes and fees that fall hardest on the least of our citizens) (the moron doesn't even realize that he just said that the rich should be given tax breaks)

* Strong national defense combined with intelligent foreign policies designed to enhance security for all God's children, not policies that stir up resentment (35+ years of proof that the Dems are soft on ND says otherwise. Remember, they voted for a guy in 2004 that submitted a Bill to reduce military and intelligence expenditures that even Ted Kennedy couldn't support. Plus, that second part sounds like appeasement)

* Fair elections (waaaa! 2000. 2004. waaaa!)

* Publicly-funded political campaigns (you want to run, use your own GD money. If you cannot raise it, obviously you are not very popular)

 And there you have, Democratic/Progressive priorities in a nutshell. But wait, it gets better!

bluestateguy But that assumes that the American people are intelligent and informed, and well, they aren't. The American people are little children, and to win elections, they will have to be treated that way. Don't like it, but that's what we have to work with.

Delphinus Add in the Democrats doing what is seriously needed to deal with Global Climate Change and Peak Oil and we'll be good. And I mean deal – not set up yet another commission to "study" it but do the hard work necessary to ensure mankind is not the next species to become extinct. (Although there are days when I look around and think the Universe would be better off if we were extinct – but that's a talk for another day!)

Terrorists shaking in their boots!

    Love the new skin. I also think you clearly understand the take of the Democratic party on , well, everything. Lots of “we’re not like them, we will do better, but we don’t have any plans or ideas.”

  2. Scrapiron says:

    They’re total plan is to beef up the Police, Fire and Rescue so we can more efficiently pick up the bodies after each terrorist attack. As a member of Fire/Rescue it sounds like a plan to me. Body bags in the U.S. are cheaper than paying the military to save lives by fighting terror on the terrorists home grounds. Damn, i’m glad I didn’t attend any of the schools the crazy dimorats attended.

  3. That is pretty much all the Dems have: “we aren’t them.” And that is going to drag politics even deeper into the mud during future elections.

    That is actually a rather scary thought, scrapiron.
