Did you notice? Shrub referred to the" DEMOCRAT" majority?
That's Democratic! DEMOCRATIC!!! :grr:

* * * * *

See line (13) of the SOTU official text:

<snip>

The rite of custom brings us together at a defining hour -- when decisions are hard and courage is needed. We enter the year 2007 with large endeavors underway, and others that are ours to begin. In all of this, much is asked of us. We must have the will to face difficult challenges and determined enemies -- and the wisdom to face them together.

Some in this chamber are new to the House and the Senate -- and I congratulate the Democrat majority. (Applause.) Congress has changed, but not our responsibilities. Each of us is guided by our own convictions -- and to these we must stay faithful.

6. David Gregory was talking about that on MSNBC.
The script he was given had "Democratic", but shrub changed it. Gregory and Matthews said it goes back to 1994 and the Contract With America.

7. Paul Begala said on CNN that it was a deliberate dig at Democrats
Edited on Tue Jan-23-07 11:38 PM by DesertRat
He said that the text actually said "Democratic", but * changed it to "Democrat". Begala said that it's a supposed slam at Democrats by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, etc. and that's why * said it.

8. What surprised me
was the way the media (at least MSNBC and, I think, CNN) picked up on it. Somebody even said that the written speech said Democratic, And acknowledged that they do it bcause it sounds "hard" and an attempt to not say anything good about our party.

15. Given so many DID notice it....
And amazingly, per the examples on this thread, in the MSM -

I tend to think they have been noticing it all along (from other rethugs), but for what ever reason decided to comment on it last night?

What cycle is the moon in?

20. It's cause Shrub said it.
Dillweed-in-chief says it, it's important; and what a sly little dig it was, in there with all of the "let's be nice" together.

Asshat.

16. Fox News falsely claimed Bush referred to "Democratic majority" in SoTU
"I congratulate the Democratic majority" in Congress. In fact, while the prepared text of Bush's speech reportedly did feature the phrase, "Democratic majority," Bush actually congratulated what he called the "Democrat majority," as the White House's official transcript makes clear.

17. I got my chops busted for doing that earlier in the week
someone said somethign about it being a cuss word right up there with the "N" word for blacks but the whole thing is just over my head. I could see if Bush was calling us the "rats" but I just don't get the whole thing about "Democrat" and "Democratic".

21. It's got a long, long history.
Goes way back. Long story short: Democratic has so many positive assocations with the American people. They are trying to take that away from us. ALSO, it's the name of our party, and WE as Democrats get to decide what we want to be called. NOT THEM.

It's like the bully who keeps calling you "Tommy" when you've said you want to be called Thomas. It's a powerploy asshat play.
