In today’s issue of the New York Times there is an article about the recent shenanigans by Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate titled Democrats Seek a Shift to Issues That Will Favor Them.
I read the article to find out what issues NYT thought the Democrats are pushing – and how the recent show was going to help them.
. . . Pause here to read the article . . .
Did you find them? The most I could glean was this paragraph,
“Arguing that Republicans are vulnerable in light of misconduct accusations reaching the highest levels of the White House and Congress, a rising death toll in Iraq and record fuel prices and oil company profits, Democrats are taking a more aggressive adversarial posture.”
If this is all the Democrats have I am not really worried about next years’ elections, especially with a slogan hearkening back to the malaise-ridden Carter years "Together, America Can Do Better."
The thing is I wish the Democrats actually had a vision or strategy or whatever and that the headline for this article was true, because then, maybe, the Republicans would actually be the small government, low tax, etc. party.
