Democrats plan to undermine public confidence in President George W. Bush by challenging his credibility and raising doubts about America, sources within the party tell Capitol Hill Blue.
A multi-pronged attack against Republicans and the President will focus not only on economic issues, but question American values, raise doubts about how this country is viewed by other nations and question the patriotism of Bush and his party.
The extensive campaign, developed by senior Democratic consultants and party leaders, was launched last week with attacks on the Bush economic plan by Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Richard Gephardt.
In coming weeks, Democratic elected officials will question the Presidents intentions on the pending war with Iraq. Writers and broadcasters friendly to the Democratic cause have already been provided talking points suggesting the war is about oil, not terrorism. The talking points were developed before the end of last year and sent out to operatives and friendly media, one Democratic consultant confided. No Democratic member of Congress will question the Presidents patriotism openly but we will use the media and other surrogates to raise doubts.
Capitol Hill Blue obtained a copy of the talking points when the Democratic National Committee sent them to a news outlet recently acquired by CHBs parent company. The talking points outline a strategy to raise public doubts of the Presidents real intentions, including: --Saying the war is about oil and will be fought to benefit oil companies that have long supported Bush and the Republican party;
--Claiming the Bush administration has manufactured evidence against Saddam Hussein and used that evidence to encourage Britain and other allies to join the American fight against Iraq;
--Suggesting a wartime economy is the only way the administration can revive the countrys lagging economic situation.
It is clear that the current approval ratings of the administration are tied directly to strong American feelings toward traditional values, the talking points say. To counter this, doubt must be raised as to Americas true position within the world community and the true intent of the Bush administration in waging war.
Some Democrats admit privately they are uneasy with the party strategy to undermine American values in an attempt to get Bush.
My boss doesnt want anything to do with it, one senior Senate aide told Capitol Hill Blue on Monday. You dont undermine this country to win elections. Others, however, are willing to try anything to put the White House and Congress back under Democratic control. The real war isnt in Iraq, one Democratic consultant said. Its right here at home, at the ballot box in 2004.
Among the other points Democrats hope to make in the coming weeks:
--Both President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are controlled by oil and defense industry special interest groups.
--The war on terrorism is a failure because Osama bin Laden is still at large.
--America is unprepared for another terrorist attack because of White House preoccupation with Iraq. --War will increase the countrys economic woes. --Bush will be forced to raise taxes to finance the war.
Its time to take the battle to the people and make them understand just how dangerous George W. Bushs policies are to the future of America, the talking points conclude.
Democratic sources say the talking points were developed by Democratic Chairman Terry McAuliffe, former Clinton campaign strategist James Carville, Senate Majority Leader Daschle and former House Democratic Leader Gephardt.
This is a classic, Jim Carville, scorched earth campaign, crows one DNC staffer. Take no prisoners. Thats how you win elections. Democratic party spokesmen would not return phone calls seeking comment on this report.

It's time to squash the Party of Clinton!!!
Well, he'll never make it as a democrat
Some idiots don't know when to lay low.
Bring it on, idiots!
But the media are impartial and show no bias. They tell us so. /major sarcasm
These people are pure EVIL. They would destroy their own country, see their own friends and family slaughtered, do anything to gain power and control.
God help us all!
The Dummycraps seem determined to push and twist the damn thing till it comes out the other side or just gets lost under the skin!
Absolute Brain surgeons!

So now they even openly admit that the media carries their water for them. What a disgusting distortion of the purpose and intent of the press.
Well I should hope they were at least FRIENDLY with them. If it were Slick, Gore, or (God forbid) Queef Hitlery, they'd be playing Dummycrap class warfare-demonization games with the very industries we desperately need to keep strong in this world of Islamic nutcases plotting to destroy us all!

Now you can understand why several democrats have repeated the mantra of late that rhetoric shouldn't be bandied about accusing folks of not being patriotic just because they 'speak out'. The bastards are triangulating US at every turn on the tube, and they're plotting treason at the same time they're spewing their seditious bilge spittle.
Having wounded the sitting President in 1991, Carville finished the job the following year, when he guided William Jefferson Clinton to the Presidency in 1992. Carville was honored as Campaign Manager of the Year by the American Association of Political Consultants for his leadership of Clinton's fearsome and intense "War Room" at campaign headquarters in Little Rock. Carville was also the focus, along with George Stephanopoulos, of the feature-length Academy Award nominated documentary The War Room.
After the Clinton victory, Carville began to focus on foreign consulting. Since that time, Carville's political clients have included the following: Greek Prime Minister Constantine Mitsotakis; Brazilian President Fernando Enrique Cardoso; Honduran Prime Minister Carlos Flores; President Jamil Mahuad of Ecuador; the Liberal Party of Canada; British Prime Minister Tony Blair; Sao Paulo Mayor Celso Pitta; Argentine Economic Minister Domingo Carvallo; Francis Labastida of Mexico; Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Basdeo Panday; and President Hipolito La of the Dominican Republic. In 1999, Carville led Ehud Barak to Victory in his campaign to become Prime Minister of Israel.
James Carville is also an author, speaker, restaurateur, and talk show host. With his wife Mary Matalin, who is currently Assistant to President Bush and Counselor to Vice-President Cheney, Carville co-wrote All's Fair: Love, War, and Running for President, which spent eight weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. Carville's next books (We're Right, They're Wrong: A Handbook for Spirited Progressives; And the Horse He Rode In On: The People vs. Kenneth Starr; Stickin') earned long-running places on that prestigious list as well. Suck Up, Buck Up
and Come Back When You Foul Up, Carville's latest literary effort, co-written with Paul Begala, details strategies for fighting and winning in business, politics, and life. Begala and Carville can also be seen co-hosting CNN'S Crossfire. *** Speaking Fee - $20,000 - 30, 000
Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country---and obviously this is also the time for all evil men and women to come to the aid of Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Yassir Arafat, Bill Clinton and James Carville. May they burn in hell for joining in the attempt to destroy America simply to score cheap political points.
We are staring at a vivid demonstration of the truth that the 'leadership' of the Party of the Ass is interested in one thing, and one thing only---and that is power.
God have mercy on their souls.
Well said, friend.
The more of this they do the more clearly everyone will see them for what they truly are.
Relaese the whole damn memo!
I'd love to see five minutes of the SOTU speach dedicated to reading it to the nation.

On a day that the world has waited for to find out if WAR is coming, Dasshole and Peloise and the "usual Supects" in the democrat party are having a diresive, scathing, attacking, pep rally talking about their sad and doomed image of the world, the Presidemt, (who truly deserves better as he worries about a war, you know: life and death???) and how great a failure he is and how poor he's doing, and how..............
They can't accept they are out of power on even one day....they couldn't at Wellstone's "rally" and they still can't
These people are the enemy, they are not Americans.....
And people are starting to see it...
If this war was really about oil we could wrap it up by noon tomorrow. The only thing I fear here is the media complicity and the laziness of mainstream America. They'll believe this crap.
Uhh, Dems, don't we need to give some UN inspectors some extraordinary amounts of time to find some evidence of this? Even just a shred? Oh, that's right, rules don't apply when your self-interests are at issue.
Today this article will get read over Talk radio and picked up by Fox no doubt.........and what is happening in Spin Boldack Afghanistan the biggest battle in a year. Imagine how people will react to this dirty trick....when they hear our soldiers are in a nasty firefight and maybe some will die.
Dumb political move.......dems keep it up!
