The Dems don't have a plan

Bullshit. Some do. I meant to blog on Russ Feingold's (D-WI) appearance on Press the Meat yesterday but alas, that too fell through the cracks (told ya we were having fun this weekend). Frederick Maryland at Demagogue:

If Dec. 31 of next year isn't enough time for U.S. troops to do the job that Bush believes they're able to do in Iraq, then Republicans should please say so. And Democrats should welcome the opportunity to force GOP leaders to come clean on this.

Let Republicans criticize Feingold's plan. Let them tell the American people that one full year and four months is not enough time for the Pentagon to adequately train Iraqi police and soldiers. (The Pentagon has already been at it for roughly two years.) That kind of attack on Feingold is likely to backfire, exhausting what little patience the public still has for the Iraqi military occupation.

Read it.
