Breaking RanksFirst the Good News. From the Wall Street Journal via Think Progress:
[O]nly 36% of all adults say Mr. Bush's comments on saving and strengthening Social Security are his real motives for changing the program, while 49% believe his real agenda is to dismantle it.The unity of the Democrats as well as the grassroots movement is paying off in spite of George W. Bush's expensive phase out campaign.
Now the Bad News.
I just finished wagging my finger at Bill Clinton and now this. What was Robert Wexler thinking?
I find that bit about allegiance to seniors and not the Democratic Party particularly exasperating. Focus on the more pressing problems of the country, Mr. Wexler. By providing George W. Bush the political cover he wants, you are undoing everyone's hard work. It is not a sign that you care and I doubt seniors will appreciate that.
On top of this, Dan Rostenkowski leans hard on Rahm Emanuel:
Why this compunction among establishment Democrats to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory I'll never understand.
Calling Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Will you please whip these folks into shape?
Mr. Wexler also deserves to hear from us. Contact info here.
