We're falling for it again.
Edited on Thu Sep-21-06 06:14 PM by senseandsensibility
We're letting them distract us. It happens every time. We were flying high, looking good until just a couple of weeks ago. Now it's all doom all the time.

Snap out of it, people! Guess what? This congress was always going to give chimpwad his torture. McCain is a phony.

We will never be able to do anything about torture without a Dem congress. And we will not get one unless we STAY FOCUSED.

End of rant. That felt good.
:smoke:

Iraq is the issue focus

3. I agree about Iraq
The Dems need to be screaming about this, because the corporate media is ignoring it. And of course, they're ignoring it because it's bad for chimpy.

2. Quite
All of our energies should be directed at putting Dems back in power - then working towards all that other important stuff. No sense wasting our efforts.

6. Why do we keep letting the media and the repugs
set the agenda? We need to be out there fighting.

4. So you are saying this is just the October Surprise and just move on
Oh yeah right. With the Democratic congress in full support of this bill, when are you expecting them to then reverse course and rescind torture?

Democrats in DC are warhawks too.

5. No.
I'm saying that it was a given that this would happen. I don't like it, but pinning your hopes on McCain and Grahmam is foolish. When we, the base, give the Dems the house, we must use our influence to make them rescind this. Will it be easy? No. But crying about something that was bound to happen and letting it distract us is giving up. I'm not ready to give up.

7. I'm with you. McCain and Graham were window dressing.
I'm in this for the long haul. Winning an election or two is just the proverbial foot in the door.

9. Exactly.

It's hard to think in the long time but our side had better start doing it. It's our only hope.

10. The court ordered it
Did everybody not get this? There HAS to be a bill. If -big if- this is a good bill, then Dems were wise not to jump in the fray too soon. If it's not, then we have ALL the Republicans down FOR torture. We need to see what's in the damned bill.
