Republicans Are The Party Of Cut And Run

George Bush at a fundraiser in B’ham last month:

The stakes in this war are high, and so are the stakes this November. Americans face the choice between two parties with two different attitudes on this war on terror. Five years after 9-11, the worst attack on American homeland in our history, the Democrats offer nothing but criticism and obstruction, and endless second-guessing. The party of FDR and the party of Harry Truman has become the party of cut and run.

Guess what America? We no longer have that choice. The president is now denying that he ever wanted to “stay the course.” As we’ve all been told for some time, the only alternative to “stay the course” is “cut and run.” Thus, in addition to being laughably incorrect, the denial means, obviously, that the president wants to cut and run.

That’s the logic of political debates in this country today. Right?

  1. Yeah, I found his answer to that question on This Week to be quite funny. I have heard “stay teh course” so many times my hears hurt, but now we never wanted to “stay the course.” What is that?

    Yeah, it sucks when your own framing comes back to bite you in the ass. Maybe they were saying “Stay the Force” and not “Stay the Course”. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Or maybe it was “Stay the Horse” or “Stay the Divorce”…..

    It appears that Bush forgot about the invention of videotape.

    Two weeks before the elections and the Republicans are running scare despite their protestations to the contrary. I refuse to let them get away with ditching their “stay the course” mantra now. Please, Democrats who care, don’t let them get away with this new strategy.

  5. Arduous Says:

    The inept campaigning by the Republicans demonstrates a lack of respect for the voting public. How stupid does Rove think we are? I look forward to voting for every Democrap on the ballot.


  6. […] If a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, then W’s mind is huge indeed. First he stayed the course until he never did. Now this. […]
