A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

For years, people on both sides of the political spectrum have griped that Democrats don't have any issues or a real agenda. The fact that Republicans have controlled Washington for the better part of this century certainly shows that Democrats have not successfully maximized their advantages and opportunities.

Today in Iraq: The Latest News From the President's War of Choice
U.S. Says Violence in Baghdad Rises, Foiling Campaign

Washington, DC - A report in today's Washington Post concludes that after three months, the Forward Together military operation that President Bush ordered has failed to reduce escalating violence in Iraq as intended. Democrats have been joined by leading Generals and top Congressional Republicans in rejecting President Bush's failed stay-the-course strategy in Iraq and want a new direction that is both tough and smart.

You won't read it on the front of the New York Times (although they were eager to place under a microscope every salacious inquiry into the marriage of the Clintons).

Black smoke billows out of the shattered truck, still engulfed in raging fires. Bodies lie strewn about in pieces, many of which are unrecognizable. Fresh, dark blood pools into the nearby gutter, and screams of pain and loss howl unbearably.

The Real Stakes: RNC Ad Shows Desperate GOP

Washington, DC - Democrats denounced the RNC's latest fear and smear attack ad, as a desperate ploy to once again try to scare voters and distract from their failures on everything from the economy to the war in Iraq, their inability to handle a natural disaster, to the war on terror. Instead of offering voters any kind of positive vision for America, the RNC, realizing they have only repeated failures to run on, released a shameful ad invoking the image of despicable terrorists to scare the American people.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO

GOP Candidate Mailed Letter To Hispanics Claiming Illegals Will Be Arrested For Voting

This racial hate crime masquerading
As a political scam
Was done by an immigrant-bashing
Man born in Vietnam.

He knew exactly
What he was doin'

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"The top US general defended the leadership of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, saying it is inspired by God. ‘He leads in a way that the good Lord tells him is best for our country,' said Marine General Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff." Uh, oh, we really are in big trouble. When the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff can't even tell the difference between God and George Bush how can he be trusted to lead the military through a war!!! Just in case it might help, memo to General Peter Pace: George Bush, not God, appointed Rumsfeld. George Bush, not God, tells Rumsfeld what to do, and if you'd just take the time to have a look, what's happening in Iraq isn't the best for America or for Iraq!
