Democratic Party Memory Loss

It seems that the Democratic memebers of the Senate have very short memories. Senator Feinstine from Califonia sent an email to the Attorney General asking to remove a US Attorney for failing to go after Illeagle Immigrants who were criminals. Now she is saying that the Attorney General should not be firing the same US Attorney. Is this a search for the truth or just a political ploy by the Democratics and the Media that thinks they can control the government? This is a media that reports only what they want the public to know. They are also the media that is losing readership and the trust of the American Public.

They are depending on the majority of the American people supporting them no matter what they do. They are counting on Bush's bad polls and image to carry them through in the hopes that people will overlook the abundant shortcomings and general lack of planning and cohesiveness that is so prevalent in the Democratic camp. They are counting on the A.B.B. (Anybody But Bush) attitude that is currently sweeping this country. The Democrats do not now and never did have a plan concerning Iraq. Instead they are hoping that by keeping the focus on Bush and his problems that they helped create, then no one will be paying attention to them. They do like to point fingers for the very things that they do while they are in office. Of course it is ok for them to do those things simply because they "care", while the Republicans are generally considered to be "mean" and "evil". Eventually, we will get tired of their lies and lack of getting anything useful done, and they will soon find themselves in the minority where they belong. Years ago I used to listen to Rush, and he used to say that we need to elect a Democrat once in a while just to remind us of the reasons that we vote for Republicans. That is an accurate assessment that still holds true today.

The hope of winning another election with the ABB attitude will go out the window as Bush is not running again. T?he will have to have a plan other than we are opposed to what the president wants. Look at the latest bill on withdrawing the troops. One report said that the votes to pass it will cost the AmericanTaxpayer 27 Billion Dollars. How many bills can we afford to have congress pass?

political alzheimers seems to be a continuing problem with the democratic party....everyone looked at the same intelligence on iraq and came to the same conclusion, including hillary clinton and her husband before her. I mucjh liken them to a kid who has bragged to his friends about how he can drive a car, then his friends get him a car and tell him to drive and now he's left trying to figure it out on the fly so he doesnt make a fool of himself in front of them.

I believe the big fuss over the firing of the attorneys is ridiculous. Bill Clinton fired all 92 when he came into office. The democrats seem to be trying to make a scandal out of something that is not a scandal, because the U.S. President can fire any or all attorneys for any reason at all. And why would the Democrats want to do that? Perhaps to cover up the fact that they have accomplished absolutely nothing since they came storming into office vowing to pass all kinds of legislation within 100 hours and to bring the troops home from Iraq immediately. Well, we have more troops there now than ever, and the only legislation they passed in their first 100 hours still has not made it into law. I am a Republican, and I do not necessarily believe that an immediate withdrawal from Iraq would be in the best interests of the U.S. nor would it be good for the Iraqi's who would immediately be up for grabs by several different groups. I am just saying that I think the Democrats are trying to create a smoke screen to detract from the fact that they cannot deliver what they promised. The bill that was passed this morning about requiring withdrawal of troops before a certain date was a bill that they knew the President would veto. They attached a lot of little bills, (pork), to the bill so that those who had sponsered the smaller bills would be angry at the President when he vetos the bill. Does anyone else ever wonder why we pay our government officials to go to Washington D.C. and waste time day after day and never accomplish a single productive thing?

You seem to be right on. The Democratics seem to be ccontroled by a few super rich far left people. They paid for the 2006 election and want results now. Some fo theDemocratics understand that thye won't get relected by supporting the far left. Given two years I am sure the public will see them for who they are and vote them out, if the Republicans put up a strong fically consitervie slate the supports American Values.

Its all bias. You wouldn't even hear it if it weren't about the Bush administration. Like the previous poster pointed out, Clinton fired ALL the attorneys. So why are we hearing so much about Bush?

The press does not like President Bush and anythnng to get at him is fair game. The press thinks they can control the thoughts and oponins of the people. With the internet and alternative news sources people are begining to question what they read and hear onthe news.

Unfortunately for the entire country, this is once again a ploy to attempt to humiliate the current Administration. Karl Rove has masterminded one of the most brilliant political strategies that has been implemented and the Democrats are looking to discredit him. Power hungriness is taking over and it is going to make the Democrats shoot themselves in the foot for 08.

I think the country will be up in arms when they find out the ture cost of this ploy. Americans hate to lose and people forget that the Viet Nam War protester was more over the Draft and less than about the war. The truth is now comming out that we were winning the Viet Nam War until the Press decided that we were losing the war.
