Attack The Source

I think Nancy Pelosi is mishandling Dick Cheney's remarks from Japan. Who cares what Dick Cheney says? His mentality is clearly firmly rooted in fantasy land so if he slams you, don't call the president, just point that fact out to the press. Here is his latest shot at Democrats from The San Francisco Chronicle:

"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al Qaeda strategy,'' the vice president told ABC News. "The al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel, and then they win because we quit.''

Rather than calling the president to complain which is what Pleosi said she would do, I'd like to see her retort, "Dick Cheney? That man has zero credibility. Just the other day he said Don Rumsfeld was a great Secretary of Defense. Why does anybody believe a thing that man says?"

To me, it simply looks weak to run complaining to Bush every time Cheney spouts off nonsense about the Democratic party. In fact, it's probably Cheney's intent.

I disagree. This is #1 in their playbook. Bush says one thing then his minions attack and do another. All this dirt needs to be connected to the top. As the American people just will not do it.
