2747 For Democrats to win in 2006

"If Democrats could take even half the voters who consider Iraq a significant but not a “vote-deciding” issue and convert them into antiwar zealots, they would win the 2006 midterm elections by a comfortable margin. With an ongoing, bloody insurgency that is costing hundreds of American lives and billions of taxpayer dollars, it is not difficult to imagine this strategy being quite successful."

Convert them into "antiwar zealots". . .isn’t that an interesting turn of phrase. Just to win an election. That's the conclusion of Amy Gershkoff at the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Report, dated August 8. Let the Iraqis die the way our abandoned allies in VietNam did in the 1970s when we cut and ran. Just to win an election. It used to be that "democide" meant death by government for political control--like the Maoists and Stalinists who killed millions of their own people to achieve their power. Now it could mean death by Democratic converted anti-war zealots. Just to win an election. Never mind the Democrats who voted for it. Including Kedwards. Of course, on August 8 she said Americans were concerned about terrorism but not homeland security so much.

No wonder the U.S. left wing bloggers are screaming that England colluded with Bush and puffed up this latest terrorism alert. They need more mind-numbed converts to one issue. Just to win a mid-term election. They don't care spit about "lost American lives," only their political careers.

Is there anyone out there who truly believes that it makes a difference whether or not we have Democrats or Republicans in control of our government? Just name 1 significant positive legislation that either party has accomplished in the last 20 years. Let's face it, both parties spend the majority of their time firing bullets at each other and waffling.

I thought the welfare reform of the 90s was pretty good. Republicans did it, but Clinton will always get the credit.

Not all people would agree that Welfare Reform was a success. It depends on who you ask. Like the state governors think it fell far short of the goal but the Dept. of Health & Human Services considers it a great accomplishment. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since you were always smarter than me. Most people I present that to just kinda scratch their heads and come up with nothing.
