New Concept

Pulling out of Iraq is not an option...

Staying the course is not an option...

I think it is time for the Democrats to stop criticizing the president on pre-war intelligence and start demanding Bush dump Rummy and other top officials to bring in people with new ideas. The majority of American people want to support the war in Iraq, but the Bush administration has given them little to support and implying that anyone who does question him, traitors, is not the way to start. If Bush were to drop Rummy and others and bring in new faces, Americans would give the shake up a chance to succeed before calling for our withdrawal.

It is also time for Republicans to stop blindly supporting Bush on a war effort that continually blunders its opportunities. There are good things happen, but there are a lot of things that should not have happened, happen. The Republicans also need to stand up and demand that Bush bring in new leadership and accountability. Rummy has been and will continue to be a failure. Accept it.

This is actually an issue that parties can be bipartisan, responsive to their constituents and continue the best course of action, which is to stay in Iraq until it is stabilized.

What Bush doesn't seem to realize is that chastising all critics and implying they are traitors is not going to bring back their support. It only further alienates moderates on both sides who are growing weary of poor leadership. We don't want more speeches about how we are "turning the corner." we have turned so many corners that we are back in the same spot we started.
