as if Karl Rove is going to get off scott-free. We can count on some Swift-Boat tactics. He will have plenty of time to create chicanery for Republicans. If Rove walks, could DeLay be too far behind? What the morally challenged Republicans hope for is that the polls narrow so that they can steal it again. We are going to be told in '08 that Bill Frist is not George Bush, or that
John McCain in not George Bush, or that Rudy Giuliani is not George Bush.... and it's true they
aren't but what major Bush policy did they oppose?......NONE. Only 38% of the people of the United States vote and of the 38% more than half of them can be fooled into voting against their own interest by the media so the political waters are not as rosy as some Democrats would have us believe. The heart of the matter is that if we want an end to Republican cronyism, racism and classism we are going to have to fight with the same bulldog tenacity of Karl Rove. This president believes he is above the law and there are very few Democrats who have the intestinal fortitude to challenge him. At a time when Howard Dean is trying his best to increase the number of Democratic voters in traditionally Republican states Senators Schumer and Emmanuel are advocates of following the same losing strategy by preaching to the choir in spending heavily in Democratic states. This is a prescription for failure. Senator Schumer also played a pivotal role in discouraging the candidacy of a vocally Anti-Bush Democrat (Paul Hackett) who just happened to be an Iraq war veteran from running in Arkansas. It is the common people who must determine who is the real progressive Democrat and who is the DLC stooge. Here we find really the only bright spot. Democratic funding raising is surpassing Republican fundraising because the common man and woman's small donations are surpassing the huge fat cat donations to the Republicans. But this too will mean nothing if we don't have the guarantee of fair elections.
