Democrats finally have a PLAN - Attack Everything

Senate Democrats have finally come out with a plan and we find it is the same as it has always been....attack President Bush on Everything!

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 plan: Attack EVERYTHING.

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.

Yes, use the Military that you don't support to try and attack the Military's Commander-in-Chief.

Is the PLAN that has been years in the planning?
This is what the Democrat Party to be, the party of Obstrcution, the party that attacks everything but offers no real solutions, no answers?

It is easy to complain and attack everything your opponents do and say, but without anything of substance to show what you can do, all you will do is make yourself look petty and small.

"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.

Ah, trying to spark the patriotism part of the PLAN?
This portion alone shows me that this is nothing but smoke and mirrors, dressing up your attack under the guise of Democrat Patriotism. Something I rarely see from thier party and something that is hard is even harder to write next to each other.

The plan is the latest attempt by Democrats to criticize Mr. Bush on national security issues in the aftermath of the Dubai ports deal dust-up, which Republicans conceded was mishandled by the administration. One of the few areas where Republicans continue to poll well versus Democrats is on fighting terrorists.

In almost every issue in the Reid memo, Democratic lawmakers are called upon to criticize the president for not spending enough federal dollars.

Republicans poll well mainly because they have a stance, a position on how to protect the US, or are at least trying. We are still waiting on the plan from the Democrats, so far this Plan addresses nothing on what the Democrats are standing on for a position.

Is this in repsonse for the President cutting 190 Billion out of the Budget Ried wanted in?

They criticize the President for spending too much, and then want him to spend more.

The plan urges the lawmakers to:

• "Hold a town hall meeting with state officials and a local National Guard unit at their armory to discuss the security impact of long deployments. ... Ask National Guard members to offer input on how security and disaster response at home is compromised by long deployments."

• "Hold a town hall meeting with troops at a local military installation. ... When selecting a location at the military installation for the event, make sure to select a space that allows easy press access and clearly conveys the message in the shot. Planes, vehicles, equipment and signage in the background enhance the pictures coming out of your event."

• "Work with [veterans] organizations ... to find recently returned Iraq and Afghanistan veterans willing to discuss the mental effects they or their fellow veterans have experienced."

• "Tour a factory in your state that manufactures military equipment like Humvees or body armor and hold a press availability afterwards with Iraq and Afghanistan veterans on the importance of protective equipment."

• "Visit the home of a military family that has purchased body armor on their own for a family member serving in Iraq or Afghanistan and hold an open press 'conversion' on the issue. ... Ask the family if they would be willing to hold the open press conversation/town hall meeting in their yard, on their front porch or in their home."
