Let the Excuses and Lies Begin - Dems and Elections

In the last Presidential campaign, the Democrats tried to scare every kid and parent by claiming that President Bush had a secret plan to reinstate the military draft after the election. Well, that "secret plan" must be super-secret because we never saw it. Now, the Democrats are poised with made-up accusations again--this time that President Bush has a secret plan to bring home the troops right before the November elections--a "November Surprise". I guess that's a way to say that they thought of it first if Bush does (possible, but not a timetable) and to start laying out the excuses for when the Democrats do poorly in the mid-term elections. Let their lying begin.

Apparently, these are not secrets, GM. Otherwise, we would have read about them in the NYT.

I think my new draft number (reserved for us older types) is 001-OH PLEASE! ;-)

It's called "pre-emptive accusations". Throw out enough and eventualy something will stick.

(Actually, I think it was a secret Dem strategy - and we all know how they can't keep a secret.)

The draft bill was sponsored by Charley Rangel and someone else late in 'o4 then spread around by some partisan idiot that there was a Republican ploy to secretly re-instate the draft. Then Rangel copped an attitude when it was called to a vote because, he said, it should have gotten discussion first. The thing of it is, we could never trust the press to report on it as to how it was introduced and by whom (and Rangel knows that). They would only have reported that it was under discussion in the House and left people to guess that the Republicans were behind it because that's what was first said. Sure, some people would have found out, and word would have been spread over the internet, but a lot of people would never have learned any different.

Rangel is so disingenuous about it. He says it was a dirty trick for the Republicans to call an immediate vote. Sounds more to me like an Dem election time ploy backfired.

Actually Charley Rangel is a likeable guy. He even has good points from time to time, but what he tried to pull with that was just crap.
