Whats your plan?


Whats your plan? That was the war cry of Bushes speech last night, asking the liberals what the plan was, rather then just negative rhetoric.

So, I walked out of the arena last night, and found this batch of protesters, about 300 of them. Here's the vid.



Kinda anoying how the police busted us up...

Anyways, we're an unconstitutional country, conservative b@%#^@(!), and supporting a nazi regime.

All in a day's work. :D

Sorry, left the link out earlier.

WOW!!!
It looked like each side of the issue took a side of the street and faced off.
I'll bet that was interesting.
YOu went looking for that?

Palm boy said...

Yup, went lookng for it. They set up outside the main entrance to Reunion Arena, and when Bush's speech ended, 13,000 republicans went through the door, saw them, and starts a vocal war. Needless to say, there was a reason the people who waved a simulated flag upside down need bull horns.

TheEarthCanBeMoved said...

Yeah,
I saw that.
It's a good thing I wasn't there.

Ha. What's the President's plan? can he articulate it? I haven't heard him do anything other than bash Democrats....but its HIS war, what's HIS plan?

TheEarthCanBeMoved said...

FYI...
"HIS" war was supported by Congress and the general American population.
Sorry if y'all changed your mind...
But we're already over there.
And we're gonna finish the job too.

Also,
Being a great speaker doesn't make a great leader.
I recall a certain figure in history who was a great speaker,
What was his name again?
Oh yeah...
Hitler.

Bush's plan?

Stay the course, and kill the terrorists. Through democracy, the despair that breeds terrorism will be vanquished.

Savvy?

How? how is he going to "finish the job" - when do we know its "finished" and again, i reiterate, "what is his plan?"

Many members of Congress that authorized it are now calling for a change in policy and a change in leadership.

So, what's the plan?

TheEarthCanBeMoved said...

My point was,
They authorized it.
So now we have to finish the job.
Pulling out now would make things worse than before.
It doesn't matter who thinks starting it was a bad idea.
The fact remains,
We must finish the job.

Bush's plan, to put it simply: Protect America.

Democrats' plan: I can't really be sure.

Bush's plan: Use aggressive interrogation techniques on terrorist detainees in order to attain important information to protect Americans.

Democrats plan: Go easy on detainees. As (I think) Bill O'Reilly says, "Democrats want to try to get information out of terrorists by giving them milk and cookies."

Bush's plan: Secure the border, by putting up a fence as well as other things.

Democrats' plan: [whistle of the wind]--perhaps amnesty and/or open borders?

Bush's plan: Surveil terrorist communications and monetary transactions.

Democrats' plan: Give terrorists and those in contact with them their "rights to privacy." Essentially, their rights to privately plot to slaughter Americans.

Bush's plan: Defeat worldwide terrorism on the terms, "If you're a terrorist--you're against us. If you harbor terrorists--you're against us."

Democrats' plan: Negotiate with terrorists.

Bush's plan: Protect this country and defeat its enemies at all costs.

Democrats' plan: Go through the U.N. at all costs.

Bush's plan: Finish the job in Iraq. He realizes leaving the job unfinished would be disastrous. He also has said that the military constantly adapts. That's the plan. That's the good kind of "change" the American people should want.

Some Democrats' plan: Cut and run. (Big mistake)
Other Democrats' plan: Divide the country. (Also probably a big mistake.)
Almost all Democrats' vague plan: "CHANGE!" (Easy to say. Harder to do.)

I have to vent a little bit about that last line. Democrats criticize Bush for campaigning on "stay the course," but the Democrats could be criticized even more for their "the people want change" line. On a cold day, if cool water is the hottest you can get in the shower, do you turn the knob to ice cold for "the sake of change"? I don't think so. In the same way, although I don't see Republicans as "cool water," for those who do, I ask: why would that make you vote for Democrats [the "ice-cold" water]? If you don't like your leaky roof, why do you then decide to go out and sit in the mud and rain?
That's how I see voting for Democrats for the sake of not liking how Republicans are handling Iraq.
Here's a jewel quote from an ordinary, Democrat voter (I'll leave out specific candidates names): "I really don't want to vote for [Republican candidate]. But I CAN'T vote for [Democratic candidate]--he's an idiot!"

Now, I'm not calling all Democrats idiots by association, but I do love that quote.

However, I want to remind everyone (although this may be too late, anyway) that not voting is NOT the answer. You should pick the lesser of two evils, so to speak, because if you abstain from voting, you essentially are choosing the GREATER of the two evils.

Also, I could go on about how Bush and conservatives protect Americans and the Democrats don't. For instance, Bush tries to protect the most innocent and vulnerable of humans--the unborn. Most democrats do not. Bush tries to protect the sanctity of a productive and culturally healthy institution--marriage. Many (perhaps most) Democrats don't. The list goes on into embryonic stem cell research, cloning, etc.,etc.

Clearly, someone who says Bush doesn't have a plan really means, "I don't like Bush and conservatives' and Republicans' plan."

Anon,
What does finishing the job mean? The elimination of Islamic Jihad/Terrorism as a major threat to United States lives and interests.

Yes, many members are calling for a change. And yet, they again voted for the war earlier this summer.

Anonymous said...

well the American people have spoken tonight haven't they boys? thank God. Bush's policies will finally be stopped.

TheEarthCanBeMoved said...

I'm soory...
I think you read the post wrong.
It said only 300 protesters showed up.
Campared to the 13,000 Bush supporters that were there.
(There would have probably been more,
But there are only so many seats in that arena.)
I think you got the numbers mixed up.

Palm boy said...

Yeah, thats what happened.

And the protestors said earlier, when I took that first picture, that they were definatly going to have more then a thousand protestors...

Yeah. They got 30% of what they wanted.
