Yeah, we tapped you... and we'd do it again
Democrats take note. While you were busy massaging the wounds of senate Republicans and promising to leave only gum marks in future bites, the Republican administration is busy taking your latest weapon and turning it on you.
Raw Story excerpts from a Times analysis that "lay[s] out a strategy that has been employed by the Bush campaign before -- to use what some might view as a liability and turn it into a political asset. The Bush campaign did this in 2004 with the President's troubled National Guard Service, questioning Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) on his own military credentials."
"the White House has effectively declared that it views its controversial secret surveillance program not as a political liability but as a tool: a way to attack Democrats... Whether the White House can succeed depends very much, members of both parties say, on its success in framing the debate at a time when the country is torn between two very strong pulls: its historic aversion to governmental intrusion and its recently born fear of a terrorist attacks at home."(Raw Story)
