Democrat leaders plan expanded Bush-bash war.... using military installations, active & former military as cooperating props for photo ops....
Led by the U.S. Senate Democrats, who have a detailed plan set out in a memorandum by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Democrats up for re-election to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are instructed to use every possible high-profile military installation, prop and press availability to hit President George W. Bush in his strongest area---national security and the Bush Doctrine of pre-emption in the War Against Terrorism---while also attacking his budget and assaulting him with their collective-mantra buzz-words. In this use-the-military political ploy, they plan to circumvent military regulations that prohibit the use of military installations for political purpose.
Their current collective buzz-word is "incompetence." Another is "failure" to provide for national security. Just what, exactly, did the Democrats---post Harry Truman---do to provide for national security and keep America and Americans safe? And, just what was done to fight terrorism on Bill Clinton's and the Congressional Democrats' watch? Aside from lobbing a million-dollar missile into a ten dollar tent in Afghanistan---to hit a camel in the butt.
Needless to say, the hard-left mainstream media---such as The New York Times, Washington Post, and on-air CNN and MSNBC---will not be putting the Dem's newest down-and-dirty military-abusing trick on their above-the-fold and top-of-the-hour news. They will relegate it to an obscure position or simply bury it, as they do with all positive information about the Bush Administration and the Afghanistan and Irac Wars that comprise major fronts in the War Against Terrorism.
Democrats, in their expanded Bush-bash war, are also using their new 21st century version of the V.V.A.W.---John Kerry's old Vietnam Veterans Against the War group that helped Democrats in Congress at that time snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory and defame 150,000 Americans troops who fought and died in the Vietnam War---called "the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), which is critical of Mr. Bush. The IAVA political action committee has raised for $100,000 for Iraq and Afghanistan" (Democrat) "war veterans running for the House. It has endorsed all seven Democrats in that category who are running against House Republicans. An IAVA PAC spokesman said Republican candidates chose not to seek the group's endorsement."
So, history repeats itself as we have Democrat members of the U.S. Congress conspiring with anti-war military veterans to undermine another war---the Iraq War, which is the major front in the War Against Terrorism---to turn it into a Vietnam re-run that will end with a loss for the United States.
Democrats know that they cannot re-gain control of Congress and the White House during war-time without completely destroying George W. Bush. Just like they worked to destroy President Richard M. Nixon, who was reversing Democrat Presidents Kennedy and Johnson's losses in Vietnam and turning them into victories. They are also using the "impeachment" word---making ridiculous attempts to get an impeachment process going against Bush---through creation of faux scandals and trumped up charges, hoping that some of the slime they throw at him will stick.
They couldn't let Nixon win the Vietnam War.... and they cannot let Bush win this one. That's why they are willing to do anything---bar nothing---to make Bush and this war fail, in the hope they can take back the government and finish turning it into a liberal-elite, falsely-secure, secular-humanist, euro-style socialist nation.... a la France. Which is something we must prevent from becoming a fait acompli....!

"Political offensive targets Bush"
"Senate Democrats have mapped a political battle plan for the March congressional recess that calls on lawmakers to stage press events with active duty military personnel, veterans and emergency responders to bash President Bush on virtually every one of his national security policies.
The game plan, devised by the office of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, is contained in a six-page memo distributed to Democratic senators on Thursday at a closed-door meeting at the Capitol and provided to The Washington Times by a congressional staffer.
Titled "Real Security," the political document calls for staged town hall events at military bases, weapons factories, National Guard units, fire stations and veterans posts. "Ensure that you have the proper U.S. and state flags at the event, and consider finding someone to sing the national anthem and lead the group in the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the event," the battle plan states....
The plan is the latest attempt by Democrats to criticize Mr. Bush on national security issues...."
