Democrats Settle on a "New Direction" Platform… Perfect!
In an interview Tuesday with USA TODAY, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi previewed the “New Direction for America” platform hammered out by Democratic members of Congress, mayors and governors. She and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid plan to formally unveil the plan today.
“The American people need to know, if you win, what are your priorities,” she said. Reid said the party is standing “with the people we have always stood with: seniors, students and the hardworking families of America. We intend to tackle the issues that matter most.”
Democrats need to pick up 15 seats in November to regain control of the House of Representatives. In the Senate, six additional seats would give Democrats control.
Brilliant! Never has there been a platform more fitting for a political party.
** A “New Direction” **
The democrats won’t even have to grow into this…
Democrats have already perfected the “new direction” plan.
John Kerry is an excellent example.
In conceding the 2004 Presidential Election to President George W. Bush, Kerry had this to say about staying the course:
I pledge to do my part to try to bridge the partisan divide. I know this is a difficult time for my supporters, but I ask them, all of you, to join me in doing that. Now, more than ever, with our soldiers in harm’s way, we must stand together and succeed in Iraq and win the war on terror.
This week at the Take Back America conference, John Kerry took another “New Direction”:
U.S. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts on Tuesday told an audience at the liberal Take Back America conference that he was sorry for voting to authorize the war in Iraq, calling the entire mission “a mistake. “
We were misled, we were given evidence that was not true,” Kerry said. “It was wrong, and I was wrong to vote [for it].”
“We should follow the lead of Congressman John Murtha, who has put forth a plan to make American safer, to make our military stronger and to make Iraq more stable,” Pelosi said. “That is what the American people and our troops deserve.”
But, hours later when it was time to vote on an Iraqi cut and run, Pelosi joined Murtha in a “new direction” along with all but three Representatives to stay the course in Iraq.
Then there is the Hawk Murtha who says he suports the “broken and worn out” “cold bloded killers” fighting for the US in Iraq but in a “New Direction” urges potential recruits not to sign up for military service…
(It didn’t work by the way!)
Hillary Clinton may be the champion of “New Direction” or “No direction” from the sound of her speech to the Take America Back crowd on Monday:
“I do not think it is a smart strategy, either, for the president to continue with his open-ended commitment, which I think does not put enough pressure on the new Iraqi government,” said Clinton, before turning to the anti-war liberals’ core beef with her.
“Nor do I think it is smart strategy to set a date certain. I do not agree that that is in the best interests,” said Clinton.
Huh?… What was that? No wonder they booed!
And, that is their leader?
No matter… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday…
Every day is a “New Direction” day for democrats!
