You can see this weasel coming a mile away

While Bush talks of victory, he's laying the groundwork to blame the Democrats for defeat.

If Bush fails, it's your fault.
This is the line that jumped-out at me during Bush's State of the Union speech:

"...whatever you voted for, you did not vote for failure."

Our country is pursuing a new strategy in Iraq and I ask you to give it a chance to work," Bush said. "And I ask you to support our troops in the field and those on their way."

So -- let me get this straight -- if we don't support one more of Bush's doomed-to-failure plans, we're voting for failure?

As we have reported so many times, Bush does not tolerate discenting voices in his inner-circle -- anyone who dares speak the truth to the president gets a boot in the head. The same for the media -- if they dare tell the truth, they are undermining the troops and the war on terror.

So, who's to blame if the American public recognizes that Bush has lost this war? Americans are! They are voting for falure! (and not supporting the troops!)

Let Bush "cross the aisle" before he surges.

The second thing that statement that jumped out at me was this one:

Our citizens don't much care which side of the aisle we sit on — as long as we are willing to cross that aisle when there is work to be done. external link
If Bush is really committed to "crossing the aisle" then I suggest he start with his "surge." Talk with the Democrats -- and incorporate their advice -- before sending thousands of more troops over there.

Yes, Democrats are voting for failure if they maintain we should withdraw at this stage, pure and simple. Most of them voted for the war, agreed with Bush about the problem, and even stated the very same things about Iraq and Saddam when Clinton was in office. For them to take this line of reasoning now, after all they have said in the past, makes them look like the petty, disingenuous liars they are.

And by the way, the correct term is 'The Democrat Party,' as the term 'democratic' refers to a process and not a party. I refuse to refer to anything Democrats do as 'democratic' when socialism is their ultimate goal.

1) Recognizing failure is not the same thing as voting for it. The vast majority of Democrats would be supporting this war if the Bush administration hadn't failed at it.

2) "Democratic Party" is proper usage. "Democrat Party" is a taunt.

Wikipedia has a good entry on it:
