"The Democrats should just sit back and let the Republicans self-destruct and it doesn't really matter that they have no plan and no viable candidate."
That is their plan, Nora. Have you not been attending the meetings? Lacking a cohesive plan, the Dems are forced to depend on the self-destruction of their adversary, in this case, the GOP.
But that won't be happening unless things go bad for America. If things go bad for America their plan works. That's why the Dems are giddy over the prospect of us 'losing' in Iraq. That's why they are crying at the top of their liberal lungs that we have already lost. That's why they want us to pull out NOW.
That's why they are fervently wishing for the all out civil war that has yet to materialize.
Thats' why they are praying Osama eludes U.S. forces. That's why they high-five each other each time a new Abu Ghraib photo comes out.
This is quite a gamble on their part. But in the end, its a lot like playing blackjack and never hitting because you think the dealer will always bust. Americans are tired of hearing the Dems whine, "the emperor has no clothes", while they themselves stand there naked as jaybirds.
