"THE PRESIDENT SHOULD WORRY MORE ABOUT HIS COUNTRY AND LESS ABOUT HIS POLLSTERS"-Tom Daschle 9/26/02
Fred Francis - MSNBC | 9/26/02 | Wait4Truth

Posted on 09/26/2002 11:31:37 AM PDT by Wait4Truth

This is a Daschle comment from this morning quoted by Fred Francis of MSNBC. Daschle was commenting about how the President has not gone far enough in being conciliatory to the Democrats. Daschle is now saying that because of the lack of trust they feel, they may not pass Homeland Security or an Iraq resolution prior to going home to campaign. Your comments are welcome. Hopefully, you will all fight back. This comment was particularly beyond the pale, don't you think? This is war, folks. Our President is being savaged and undermined during a time of war. They are now also asking the question, "Are you better off than you were two years ago?" This garbage must not stand!

I think it's time for Dubya to put the weasel back in his place.

It's not postable, friend. I cannot get over this guy. I'd give a million dollars to see the polls he's looking at for him to start out on a course like this.

Isn't this the man who won't let ANY legislation come to the floor of the Senate unless they can PROVE it has the 60 votes necessary to override a veto?

TRANSLATION: We're not getting what we want so we're NOT going to vote on what America needs. WE (the Dems) and our feelings are more important than the American public.
Wwwwwaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

"THE PRESIDENT SHOULD WORRY MORE ABOUT HIS COUNTRY" ... and if he doesn't then we democrats won't pass Homeland Security or an Iraq resolution...

Perhaps little Tommy isn't clever-enough to see some irony there...

Interesting tack on Daschle's part....

Now he will take his football and go home ....if he doesn't get his own way.

Can it get any better than this..

I am purchasing a new computer. It was going to be a Gateway till I remembered it was made in South Dakota, now it will be a Dell. Any state that keeps electing "Tommy the Twerp" will never get any of my business.

The planned offensive. This has NOTHING to do with anything Bush or Cheney actually said. They obviously had this strategy in the works and could only find those lame quotes to back up their appalling theory.

Hey, we've got plenty of partisan/Iraq/Homeland Security quotes of our own to smear the 'rats with. (As if politics is illegal anyway.)

We don't have the Biased Media to help spread our truths but we have enough other media to get the word out. I vote we give 'em a few sound bites of their own. Creeps!

If the democrat controlled senate adjourns and goes home to campaign for reelection before passing the homeland security bill they will be ravaged at the polls. They can't be that stupid to follow dashole. Can you imagine a democrat trying to talk about high prescription costs when veterans and republicans and everyone else concerned about the safety of the nation? Dashole is going to lead the dims to disgrace.

Rush just reported that Thune was 5 points ahead of Johnson. Daschle is desperate, and the press is going to try to help (as was seen in the hostility to Rumsfeld in the press conference just completed). We are going to have a bumpy ride, but I have confidence that the President expected this.

Daschle is ignoring Rummy's advice to Germany..."When you find yourself in a hole, quit digging."

Daschle just keeps digging his hole deeper.

That's the 'Bush-hurt-my-feelings-and-I'm-a-big-cry-baby' "strategy". If pursued, it'll undermine the Dem effort to move war to the back pages and virtually assure the upcoming midterms will be a referendum on the War on Terror.

Then I'd have to turn myself in for "abuse".

I'd rather observe that it is Dasshole who is practicing self abuse! Shame on you little one! Don't you know that hair will grow on your palms?

Doesn't this whiner have something better to do with his time? I can think of several bills he could pass out of the Senate....

I know this guy wants to be Prez in 2004, but I don't think the country is ready for a female president.

I thought, in posting this, that freepers would realize exactly what we are up against and just how evil the RATS are. Either we fight back or we lose. BTW, if you want to share your truest feelings, you can always freep mail me!

Looks like Daschle wants to nationalize the Senate elections and make them a referendum on whether the people have more confidence in Bush's Pubbies or Daschle's Dims to win the war. Fine with me.

Let me just add this one thing.

What our response should be is that the president is entitled to an up or down vote on HIS proposal, not one Tommy Daschle thinks will benefit HIM and the Dems.

Somebody needs to tell Daschle he's not the co-president.

Either the show was a re-run from when XXX-42 was prez, or Daschle is crazy.

Or, both, come to think of it.

Today we found out that Daschle had called the media prior to his diatribe against the President yesterday. This was plotted out with the media for maximum effect. The media is part of the plot. That should scare all of us.

I wonder if he had a team of his crack researchers scanning the papers and airwaves for ANYTHING they could twist and use agains the president. Try to picture that in your mind.

Fine. Bush can paint the Democrat-controlled Senate as REALLY not caring about security right up to Nov. 5.

No. He'll have to take a vote on both, or he'll be Minority Leader on Nov. 6.

Don't know why my response is not HTML auto-detected, but here goes:

tom_daschle@dashcle.senate.gov

To write other members of Congress as well, find email addresses at:

http://www.webslingerz.com/congress-email.html

Suggestion: though it still has an effect, and should be sent regardless, oftentimes email is simply trashed or blocked. If you have time for the old hand-written, snailmail letter, you'll have done a good thing for your country. Addresses at the above site.

To protest to the DNC:

DNC

430 S. Capitol St. SE

Washington D.C. 20003

202-863-8000

BTW, the DNC website (www.democrats.org ---BUT DON'T go there, less Terry think Daschle's despicable comments are winning him new converts) does not mention ONE THING about the war on terror or Iraq as an issue facing the nation in the coming elections---which, it breathlessly reports, are "only 41 days away!"
