Democrats and their 'secret plan' talk

why are they sinking this low???

First the secret plan to reinstate the draft if Bush gets reelected

Then the secret plan of the Bush campaign supress black votes

Now the secret plan 'January suprise' that Bush will privatize social security

What's next? Are they going to say Bush has a secret plan to raise taxes, invade America, declare himself emperor, sign a treaty with aliens to have poor people work in their acid mines, give all our flu vaccines to the rich, stop all research on stem cells because our new alien overlords need them for sustenance, and boycott precious France??

When you got nothing, you go with what could be (in the realm of possibility) to scare people.

This is not new. Democrats have always used these particular issues to scare people. Republicans do it with other things (usually national security) and Democrats do it with Social programs.

Sorry, what?

Here's what Bush promised his hardcore supporters at a luncheon last month:

''I'm going to come out strong after my swearing in, with fundamental tax reform, tort reform, privatizing of Social Security.''
How is it "sinking low" to point this out?

Welcome to politics. It doesn't seem any lower than what happens in any major election.

It's a good thing that republicans would never scare people by saying things like democrats would ban the bible, or take away all their guns, or give the UN veto power over our foreign policy. They're just that kind of people.

Besides, the alleged Bush quote came from the New York Times magazine, which everyone knows is a liberal rag. You can hardly cite them as a credible source, so it's ridiculous to make an attack based on one of their stories. Why is Kerry being such a nuisance?

Don't forget that Kerry told a bunch of Wisconsin dairy farmers that Bush has a secret milk tax in the works if re-elected.

It's the same thing with communism. They know what's good for you.

I don't quite believe that Bush & Co. have made any deals with aliens as of yet. Otherwise, sounds about right.

OMG they are going to touch our precious social security!

Actually this does the opposite of its intent for me, it makes me want to vote for him, although I am sure it does the opposite for the biggest interest group in the US.

If all these plans are so "secret" how does Kerry know? Does he have an insider in the Bush administration?

What are they talking about....

NY Times (and it's magazine) while liberal appearing, are very credible.

Are we talking about folks in flying saucers from outer space or vans from Nogales?

I don't know that I'd go this far, but I can tell you I'd be pissed at the fact that I've paid into this for 20 years and get cut off.

how do you know you won't get cut off because of lack of funding into the system?

As it stands now the only way to save SS with current levels of benefits is for an amnesty for all illegal immigrants.
