  •  Who backed President Bush? (4.00)
    Why, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee! Can't you see the first appearance on MTP when Russert plays this commercial and goes for the gotcha moment? To me this is more damaging than Dean's scream.

    I'm mean really? Who backed President Bush? The fucking head of the DNC? You've got to be kidding me. The head of the opposition party backs the leader of the GOP. Seriously now. How do you say you want to lead the party with a straight face when you campaigned on backing President Bush, the guy I spent more money, more time and more of my fucking life trying not to back anywhere but out of office. How do you do that?

    This is completely and utterly beyond my comprehension.

    Thank you sir, may I have another!

    •  To really drive the point home.. (none)
      Someone should write a hypothetical script of that imaginary Tim Russert interview with DNC Chairman Martin Frost.  Can you imagine all of the Right Wing dittoheads ENDLESSLY repeating, over and over, that even the DNC head backs President Bush.  It would be a rebuttal to every policy disagreement between the Democrats and Republicans.

      RNC House Democrats could use that ad repeatedly, bashing their opponents by saying their own party backs Bush, but they don't!


      If we elect Martin Frost as head of the DNC you can write off any chance of taking back the air waves or talking points from the RNC... MUCH LESS THE CONGRESS!

      •  Script... (none)
        Russert: "Mr. Frost, didn't you in fact tout your support of President Bush's during your last campaign for Congress.  How can you be DNC chair and support that?"

        Frost: "I supported Bush's plan to tighten airport security.  All but 9 members of the 435 members of Congress supported the same measure.  It is important that American's feel safe to fly our airlines and go to our airports.  The bill passed and our airports and airlines are safer because of it.  My opponent at the time was so extreme as to not support these security measures that were clearly in the interest of all Americans.

        "But Mr. Bush has led this country down the wrong path.  He is jeopardizing future generations with his plan to gamble Social Security in the private sector. He is willing pollute our air and water in the interest of corporations.  And he has yet to show he has a plan to stabilize the situation in Iraq."

        ...I guess I miss your point.

        •  That is not how it will be framed (4.00)
          You are deliberately picking the weakest frame that the Repubs could possibly use against Frost.

          They will not ask, "How can you be DNC Chair?"  They will relentlessly say, and have evidence of via endlessly looping video footage, that Frost ran with President Bush and is now flip-flopping against him to be DNC Chair.  The same charge they leveled, endlessly, against John Kerry.  And, you know, they'd be right.  Frost DID run with Bush.  He emphasized that again and again.  For him to turn around now and run away from him would not be credible.  It would be too easy to see through.
