I’ve read a few articles covering the Democrats debate and it seems the AP/Herald article pretty much summed up what I read elsewhere. Lots of pro-abortion talk, lots of socialized medicine talk and of course lots of Opposition Party speak.
“If this president does not get us out of Iraq, when I am president, I will,” pledged Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.
“We are one signature away from ending this war,” said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. He said if Bush won’t change his mind about vetoing the bill, Democrats need to work on rounding up enough Republican votes to override him.
“The president has a fundamentally flawed policy,” said Biden. “The president should start off by not vetoing the legislation he says he will veto.”
Dodd said Bush was pursuing a “failed policy.”
Even the Heralds title “Dems fault Bush over Iraq in 1st debate” speaks opposition and blame. I read plenty of Bush was wrong and we need to leave Iraq now, but no where did I read what these candidates would do to stop terrorism or avert future 9/11’s? Isn’t that important to them?
If any candidate has a plan of action to stop terrorism in our nation, I will listen. I won’t care what party or no party. I don’t want to hear any more candidates that only have plans of action against our nation. I firmly believe that a candidate for president should be telling us their plan for supporting and defending our nation.
