We Finally Have Our Own Slogan

While Bill Frist tosses around the most recent attempt by Karl Rove ("cut and run") to portray the Democrats as being weak, almost two years after the election John Kerry has finally come up with one of his own to describe the GOP and it's a goodie. Extremely late, but entirely appropriate. Ladies and gentleman I present to you the party of:


Now that sounds more like what the administration has really been pushing. They lie, we die. So far that has only applied to our troops, but that is sure to change with the incompetence that this administration has shown.

Update: By way of this evenings NY Times we see that some Democrats aren't happy about actually setting a hardcore date. What difference does it make if we leave sooner rather than later? Other than how many troops we lose in the meantime?
The Democrats' exasperation has increased in the last week, as they postponed a vote on Mr. Kerry's amendment to try to fashion a broader consensus among themselves. Democrats up for re-election asked him not to propose a fixed date. But Mr. Kerry, several Democrats said, was unwilling to budge from that idea, even though his co-sponsor, Senator Russell D. Feingold of Wisconsin, seemed willing to compromise for the sake of consensus. In the end, Mr. Kerry agreed only to extend his deadline, from Dec. 31 of this year to July 2007.

Mr. Kerry's insistence on pushing ahead with his own plan has left the Democrats divided, and open to renewed Republican accusations that they are indecisive and weak — the same ridicule that Republicans heaped on Mr. Kerry in 2004, when his "I was for it before I was against it" statement about a vote on money for the war became a punch line.

"There are certain Democrats who think that this is over, that we've lost or that there's nothing constructive the president is going to do," said Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, who, like Mr. Kerry, is considering running for president and who sat in on the meetings where Democrats searched for consensus. "What it really is, in fairness to them, is a frustration that they see no learning curve on the part of this administration. I can understand that frustration. But setting a date is not a plan."
As opposed to sorta, kinda, maybe soon, we'll get back to you, let's do lunch kinda plan? I say again, once you decide to leave what is stopping you from doing it immediately? It doesn't matter when we do it, I still see helicopters hovered over buildings taking as many people as possible before it's too late. Something about not getting involved in a land war in Asia.
