Democrats have no plans for this country?
A common criticism of the Democratic party is that it has no comprehensive plan to counter the Republican agenda. All they are about is criticizing what the Republicans are doing. To a certain extent, this is correct. But if you consider that the Republican plan is to essentially keep doing the same things that have made life in this country worse for nearly everyone (both economically and with respect to national security) is focusing on criticizing that plan all that bad a thing? After all, if you are heading towards a cliff and the driver's response to this information is to step on the gas, yelling "STOP!" and grabbing the wheel sounds like a pretty good plan to me. (Note: I don't actually by the media myth that the Democrats have no plans. They do, they just don't get the coverage that the Republicans do because of the advantage of Bush's bully pulpit.)
