What Was Rove's Strategy For The Nov '06 Elections? ......
What did Rove say about how the Repugs were going to politic for the Nov '06 elections? Did it have something to do with security? Was it something about how we're safer with the Repugs than with the Dems? Was Lieberman's loss to Lamont and todays terror plot foiling the start of their campaign?

2. Today from Lieberman
"We are at war with a brutal enemy," said Lieberman during a campaign stop Thursday at a Waterbury pizza joint. "How the heck can we be in a battle in which we are fighting as Democrats and Republicans against each other when these terrorists certainly don't distinguish based on party affiliation? They want to kill any and all of us."

"I'm worried that too many people, both in politics and out, don't appreciate the seriousness of the threat to American security and the evil of the enemy that faces us - more evil or as evil as Nazism and probably more dangerous that the Soviet Communists we fought during the long Cold War," Lieberman said.

"I want to make sure that I satisfy my responsibilities and use my seniority in the Senate to make the future of the families of Connecticut safer than it would otherwise be. I don't think that Ned Lamont gets that and that's a serious difference between us."

"If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them and they will strike again."

3. Yesterday from Mehlman
http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...5/-1/BUSINESS07




"America faces a critical question," Mehlman said in his prepared text. "Will we elect leaders who recognize we're at war and want to use every tool to win it, or politicians who would surrender important tools we need to win?"

If Democrats win control of Congress, Mehlman claimed that their leaders will stop the National Security Agency from eavesdropping on foreign terrorists and pursue impeachment of President Bush.

5. They want to kill any and all of us
These folks are scared too death.

Grown men cowering and crying like babies.

It's embarrassing.

Which exactly would be Rove's talking point if the dems were in power and pulling this fear and terror shit.

6. The Repugs ARE going to use the TERRA ! TERRA!! TERRA!!! chant...
as their battle cry for the elections...maybe this is their kickoff.
I'm wondering if they decided to base that particular strategy on
'information received but we ain't gonna let anyone else know about it till we're damned good and ready'...
seeing as how the Brits have known about this plot for quite some time and this isn't just a last minute OMFG terraist plot foiled.
The timing is just too...well...convenient.
I'm wondering how it would have been spun had Lieberman lost won the Connecticut primary...
as not such a big deal, maybe?
