    9. The Reactive Trap.

    For the most part, we have been letting conservatives frame the debate.

    False dichotomies are just another way of framing debates.  We need our own frames.

    Such as, for example:

    We're fighting the wrong war, against the wrong foe, in the wrong place.  We need to get back to fighting al Qaeda, and catching Osama bin Laden.  Remember him?  The Republicans seem to have forgotten him.  Democrats haven't.  We remember what happened on 9/11.  We remember who did it.  And we won't take our eye off the ball.
