What Alternative Plans Do They Offer?

President Bush has made mistakes, as any wartime leader has, and he is not unique in having to fight a war on two fronts. Unfortunately one of those fronts is at home against his political opposition.

How refreshing it would be if the debate in the Congress was over who’s plan for Iraq is best, or which competing plan to deal with jihadists announced plans to destroy us. Instead, what we have are most Democrats and some Republicans working hard to beat down the President’s plans while offering no alternative. They simply disagree with his plans for confronting the enemy so they are working feverishly to see that he fails. I’d be happy to listen to it, but I’ve not heard one forward thinking pro-active alternative plan from any of them.

Barak Obama did site and urgent need to develop a plan, but that was a call for a plan to restrain the President, not for a plan to fight our sworn enemies.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are introducing measures to prevent the USA from taking military action against Iran without Congressional approval. Of course even if the President gets approval, they reserve the right to later deny they approved and then go to war against him, just as they have done in Iraq.

President Bush is trying to do the difficult job of confronting terrorists and keeping the homeland safe, while helping establish a large democratic America friendly country in the heart of the middle-east and all Congress, the press and half of America can do is assault him at every turn.

Our enemies must be having a good laugh.

it's a lot easier as citizens to watch world news like a soap opera and then complain about the actors... republican or democratic. the problem of this of course if when real sacrifices are called for... that's annoying.
