From Yahoo:

"We all know that the United States cannot stay in Iraq indefinitely and continue to be viewed as an occupying force," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in the televised response she delivered after Bush's remarks.

"Neither should we slip out the back door, falsely declaring victory but leaving chaos," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "We have never heard a clear plan from this administration for ending our presence in Iraq."

The modern day Democratic party would not recognize a worthwhile military plan if presented with one. The only sort of fighting the Democrats want to do is from 35,000 feet in the air. The plan is pretty clear and last Sunday was a big part of it.

The heart and soul of the dwindling Democratic party wants one thing and that is to boogie out of Iraq right now. To heck with any plan. The patient is fine enough, the surgery is done, they can take care of themselves, just leave 'em in the recovery room.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who shared the response with Pelosi, said Bush's Social Security plans sound more like "Social Security roulette" than reform.

I do not trust the Democrats to fix Social Security properly. The way they approach things is they will increase taxes, both social security and general taxes to try to stop the bleeding.
