â€œYo, Larry in LA. What color is the sky in your worldâ€?
It varies but it is always true.
For some reason Repubs prefer fantasy to reality but it is not happenstance that the Republican debates follow the Democratic debates every time, giving the Repubs the last word. The bias definitely gives the edge to the Right. When you consider that Repubs have most of the Recessions and Stock Crashes then it is no wonder that the Media gives them so much help. Without that help Conservatives would almost never get elected. If they donâ€™t get elected, they canâ€™t allow the consolidation. It is the Rightâ€™s dream to have the Media speaking from one set of talking points, hence the Right-Wing Media Bias.

When you consider the fact that the Repubs running are in conflict with past Conservative Stances one might think that this would demand more coverage to sort out conflicts. Instead the â€œLiberal Biased Media seems to be bent on trying to fester conflict between the Democrats. The Repubs have many things to sort out but the Media is focused on the Dems like a laser beam. Clearly the Media has a vested interest in an 08 Repub victory. They do not want to give up the consolidation that took place under Bush. They donâ€™t want the â€œFairness Doctrineâ€ to come back and they fear a Dem victory will bring new taxes. The Media Moguls have built a decided bias to the Right in what is presented and because of self-interests they plan to keep it that way. Dems will be Bashed.

This Story is bogus. Much of the coverage of the Dems has been negative and it seems to me that the Networks, Cable plus Right Wing Talk Radio has been bashing the candidates to no end to drive up their negatives. Obamaâ€™s Wife makes a comment about her family and the Media went nuts for several days with stories of an attack on Hillary. The media has been pushing the â€œClinton Fatigueâ€ propaganda even as Hillary moves up in the polls. Every Media Right Winger has been on a mission to drive up her negatives for 16 years. The more her poll numbers go up the more they pound her. They pounded Obama for saying that he would not use Nukes against Al Qaeda and they slap him every chance they get! Only a mad man would contemplate using Nukes on small mobile personnel targets. They pounded Edwardsâ€™ and his wife for the little things.
Meanwhile the Repubs are getting a free ride again as they slip in under the radar. When they threaten to use the Nuke Option (thereby normalizing Nuke use for all) everyone in the Media yawns. In fact one of the reasons the Repubs are in a free fall is they donâ€™t get the Media scrutiny that the Dems have been given over the years. The mythical â€œLiberal Biased Mediaâ€ has been relentless in exposing Dems for any wrong doings to the point where the Dems have been scared straight. Repubs were free to commit all manner of vile offenses until their level of corruption finally reached the flash point and we have witness an explosion of base Right-Wing moral decay on our TVs in the last couple of years. Be careful what you wish for, your dreams just might come true as nightmares.
The law of unintended consequences. The Dems have been relatively well behaved corruption wise.
Who knew that the Right Wing domination of our Media would lead to â€œRepubs Gone Wildâ€.

Re: mandated troop withdrawals
Congress should send the Iraq funding bill back to Bush again and again (minus pork). If Bush wants to abruptly end our involvement, let him end it that way by his veto pen. This will be on him. If things get worse it will be Bushâ€™s fault. If things get better it rests on the Dems.

I find it hard to believe that you have not gotten an answer. If you are like our â€œLiberal Mediaâ€ you have ignored the answers the liberals have given and then proclaimed that the Dems have no plan(s). The â€œLiberal Mediaâ€ works in strange ways. If you were looking for the â€œDem Planâ€ I have already written that the Dems donâ€™t do â€œGroup Thinkâ€. I will assume the former as I respond.
After 911 both Dems and Republicans were almost without exception on the same page regarding going into Afghanistan and fighting the bad guys. Bush had a 90% approval rating among all Americans. When George started rewriting the plan the Dems were vocal about making sure that we get Ben Laden and not rush into Iraq. Still, they showed solidarity and voted for the use of force in Iraq AS NECESSARY if Saddam did not allow the inspectors in. Saddam reluctantly and arguably fully complied. This was around the time when Bush said â€œI truly am not that concerned about himâ€ (Bush-2002), referring to Ben Laden. But Bush was concerned about Saddam. Back then the Republican plan was to use Iraqi oil to pay for the war on terror. The Tom Daschle Democrat plan was to go after the terrorist that killed three thousand Americans while simultaneously allowing the inspectors (that Bush and the congress had forced on Saddam) to do their thing. They consistently and repeatedly stated this. With our embedded â€œLiberal Mediaâ€ standing on the sidelines the Right viciously attacked Tom Daschle during his opposition to Bushâ€™s apparent Iraq War plan, for his looking out for America, our young troopers and what was right. Daschle lost his bid for reelection. Almost immediately after we went into Iraq it was clear that we had done a bad thing. The Bush plan was implemented. We would run Iraq. We fired the Iraqi army and protected the oil fields. Meanwhile in a different area of the world the Democrats wanted Bush to have direct talks with North Korea. Republicans said stay the course. The result is North Korea conducted a nuke test. Democrats want Bush to have direct talks with Iran. Republicans say stay the course. The result is- stay tuned.
There were no WMDs. Arabs saw all of the false Bush statements as blatant lies by the Great Satan, designed to steal their oil. We had a problem. The Democrats plan was to show good faith, fix what we broke by bringing in more troops (and most importantly Arab participation) to restore order. We would return control of Iraq to the Iraqis. We would have elections. Rehire the army to get all of those out of work young males off the street, bring the UN in and get the World Community involved in rebuilding Iraq. They wanted to provide more support to Afghanistan. Joe Biden and John Kerry preached all of this. The Republicans plan was to start pumping Iraqi oil and according to Richard Pearle, turn Iraq into a Monarchy. We would do this on the cheep with a minimum number of troops as we were being greeted with kisses and flowers. Any country that was not with us could not participate in the lucrative rebuilding contracts. It was a simple plan. Troop levels were brought down and others were placed in safer areas in Iraq to limit American deaths as the 2004 election drew near. When that failed and as violence increased Bush stole the Democratsâ€™ plan and half implemented it and proclaimed that Kerry wouldnâ€™t do anything that we are not already doing. The â€œLiberal Mediaâ€ jumped on the Right Wing â€œvalues issuesâ€ bandwagon. Kerry lost the election.
There have been so many blunders since then there may not be a victorious way out of the mess that Bush has created. The one thing that I am sure of is the simpleminded people that made the mess are not capable of attending to the now greater complexities that exist today. They are not honest enough to truthfully identify the many problems. The best scenario looking forward may be just hopefully managing the disaster so that it does not turn into a Regional or World catastrophe. Still, the Democrats have plans. Go to their web sites and get a broader view. I have given you some of the pieces of past Dem plans. If you have been paying attention to the news over the past five years you will recognize that these things did occur. I will not do all of the work for you. Seek and you shall find. I am glad that you did not try to hold your breath for I took a holiday break. Proof that the Dems do have plans is the Republicans and some in the â€œLiberal Mediaâ€ relabeled all of them â€œcut and runâ€ plans. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve heard of those plans.

How dense (or conniving) can the Right be? The Democrats havenâ€™t even taken power yet and our Right Wing Media is already labeling them as failures without a plan. But thatâ€™s typical of how our screwed up Conservative Media works. Hereâ€™s a little news for you. Democrats donâ€™t do â€œGroup Thinkâ€ well. That is the domain of the Republicans (â€œstay the courseâ€). The Democrats have a variety of plans but our media loves to pick out the fringe single advocate oddities (bring back the draft or pull out of Iraq NOW) to highlight as the Democratâ€™s solutions. Democrats debate to reach a consensus. Republicans, without media scrutiny, listen to and follow their leaders ("Group Think", that is how we got into Iraq). The result is the disgraced Trent Lott is quietly in and Mertha is loudly out. The Democrats reached a sound decision and the Republicans are back to business as usual. For anyone who thinks that our media is liberal just continue to watch how they go after these Democrats as they give the Republicans a pass. Remember how they went after Clinton? You ainâ€™t seen nothing yet! Republican incompetence, corruption and ineptness was years in the making and the Right Wing Media gave them a pass until this last twelve months. In contrast the Media spotlight is on every move these Democrat Elects make. This media will continue to pummel Hillary, Nancy and the rest of the Democrats. Double standard? Par for the course.
The one thing that our enemies love more than the United States being incompetently (suicidal) of one mind is they themselves being proven right. Our enemies get satisfaction out of anything that appears to be a setback for the â€œWar Criminalâ€ Bush even if that set back will help the America that they hate. The desire to be right burns inside of all of us. Our enemies see the Democratsâ€™ victory as proof that Americans have finally awakened to the fact that Muslims were right about America and Bush. Republicans have tried to twist this into a commonality of results between Democrats and terrorist. Of course this is a sadistic Right Wing lie that is designed only to put the incompetent scandal ridden Republicans back in power. The fact that China may relish the predicament we find ourselves in is the result of Republican incompetence. Anyone who voted for an American candidate because of what foreign terrorist think gave the power of their vote to the terrorist. Anyone who senses that things are now going the way of the enemies of freedom due to the Democrats victory is utterly clueless. Things started going the terrorist way when Bush was inserted into the White House in 2000. His bubble headed humble foreign policy attitude coupled with our going it alone made antagonists of our traditional friends. â€œGroup thinkâ€ and American incompetence are allies of our enemies. They breed over confidence, minor terrorist victories and in the end led to chaos. Bush incompetently took our enemies lightly in 2000 and gave the terrorist a victory on 911. He confidently went into Iraq with virtually every Republican in lock step, and thus is in the process of possibly giving our enemies another victory. This Iraq War has been waged exactly the way Bush wanted. The Republican Congress was a rubberstamp. This is as close to American totalitarianism that Iâ€™ve seen in my lifetime. According to Joe Scarborough, 94% of Republicans voted for republicans in the last election. These are true believers. They donâ€™t think they follow. Republican incompetence, scandal and ineptness means nothing to them itâ€™s all about power.
The terrorist States where our enemies dwell have the same problems that all totalitarians have- an absence of real debate. They are unlikely to hit upon good solutions to any problems. Because of this flaw when they win minor clashes their people lose major advantages. This is why they are ultimately doomed to failure despite what Pyrrhic victories they may achieve. Just as Bush foolishly rushed into Iraq and deposed Saddam the Iranians have foolishly backed uncontrollable chaos. Both Bush and our enemies concerns should always be on the big picture instead of the ill-advised goals and small victories that temporary lay before them. The Democrats were irrelevant to what both saw and see before them. Competence leads to success. The terrorists are rooting for the same thing that we are rooting for, incompetence by their respective enemies.
Some of those who originally backed Bushâ€™s move into Iraq still cling to hope that the WMDs were moved to Syria. Some still believe in the â€œstay the courseâ€ slogan as a sound plan. They are willing to put our young troopersâ€™ lives on the line for the continued power of the Republican Party. They hate the Democrats refusal to incompetently wait twenty years to prove Bush right. They want Republicans to win elections during this waiting period of not holding Conservatives accountable. They are now trying to hold Democrats accountable for what the Dems might do. The more incompetence that is added to the World mix the more chaos created. Everybody loses. By bringing Democrats into power true debate can bring better solutions that will benefit all of mankind. These solutions will not come from â€œGroup thinkâ€. At the very least the number of blunders will diminish.

This was only the first pull of the chain. It will take two flushes to rid this Nation of the foul mess that was made by these hateful lying corrupt incompetent pachyderms. As the water settles admittedly the Dems were more successful than I dared believe likely. Rick, you may have called this one (the election) right early on. Strike a match and keep that cloths pin on your nose for there is still roughly 114 weeks of Republican stench lingering in the air ahead of us. Rumor has it that Hastert is still insisting that he will not give up the Speaker Chair. Stay tuned. 2008 is scheduled for Phase II.
