The GOP delivers

If I were the chair of the Democratic Party there would be one rule, one goal: when people vote on 11/10/08–there should be one idea so deeply embedded in the public pysche that it has become an unquestioned truth: voting GOP means voting Bush.

This isn’t just a gratuitous attempt to tie the GOP to an unpopular president. Think about it. Bush could never have done what he’s done without the continuing support of the GOP.

To get this message across Democrats need a chant, a mantra; maybe it could be something like this:

When George Bush argued before the Supreme Court that he had the right to put American citizens in jail indefinitely, without recourse to courts, to family members or to attorneys—-he knew he had taken an extreme position and could only maintain it by demanding loyalty from his party. And the Republican Party delivered.

When George Bush decided to waterboard prisoners in violation of treaties the United States has ratified and laws it has enacted–he knew he had taken an extreme position and could only maintain it by demanding loyalty from his party. And the Republican Party delivered.

When George Bush used his 2004 election to try to deliver Social Security to Wall Street bankers-he knew he had taken an extreme position and could only maintain it by demanding loyalty from his party. And the Republican Party delivered.

When George Bush cut taxes for the wealthy in time of war, and increased the national debt by five trillion dollars, he knew he had taken an extreme position and could only maintain it by demanding loyalty from his party. And the Republican Party delivered.

When George Bush turned his back on the real fight against al Qaeda so that he could go on a grandiose nation-building enterprise in the Iraq, he knew he had taken an extreme position and could only maintain it by demanding loyalty from his party. And the Republican Party delivered.

And so on.
