    Dems have to change the frame from "exit strategy" to "incompetent entrance strategy."

    Operation Shifting Noble Cause is about to go into high gear, and we should put on the brakes.

    The rhetoric of the right wing is being fixed around the policy of disinformation.

    •  Suggested talking points: (4.00)
      -Bush has us jump out of the plane without a parachute, now we have to figure out how we're gonna land.
      -Bush keeps telling us to stay the course, but what if it's the wrong course?
      -Bush has put us in a position where creating an Islamic theocracy in Iraq is a good outcome.
      -Bush had years to plan for the occupation of Iraq, and this is what he came up with?
    •  Agree 99% (none)
      but think it should be followed up with some sort of proactive solution.

      Personally, I would prefer if it weren't immediate withdrawal or an arbitrary deadline, but if it is, so be it. While I think 'Bush is an incompetent' is an accurate statement, he's no longer running for office. Voters need a reason to vote Democratic. The other guy sucks didn't work when the other guy was running.

      •  The problem with this, (none)
        at least in regards to Iraq, is that there really isn't a solution anymore. Between the secular Sunnis, religous Shiites, and "can we just have our own country now" Kurds, there is more than enough to insure any constitution will be a failure. Foreign jihadists and Chalabi's gang of weenies don't help either.

        It's very difficult to present a solution to a problem when there really isn't one. Heck, Bush practically ran on that idea in '04.

        "George Bush has so thoroughly screwed up Iraq that John Kerry has no idea how to fix it. In a time of war, do you really want a leader who has no idea how to win? Vote Bush."
