Today's Talking Points

Key Point: Failed Bush Republican policies have left America bogged down in Iraq and less able to fight the war on terror. Democrats have an aggressive plan to take America's security in a new direction.

Real Security

Unfortunately, failed Bush Republican policies have left America mired in a civil war in Iraq, with our military stretched thin and our nation diverted from fighting and destroying terrorist networks - the real danger to our security

America needs a new direction from failed Bush Republican security policies that have left our nation less safe than it should be.

That's why Democrats have offered a comprehensive plan to change the direction of America's security.

With Democrats, America will change course in Iraq, bring terrorists to justice, and equip our intelligence community to fight against terrorists. With Democrats, Americans will get the real security they deserve.


After September 11, 2001, President Bush ignored the advice of our uniformed military and set up a flawed system that failed to prosecute a single terrorist and was ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Five years later, Democrats welcome the Bush Administration's long-overdue decision to try some of the alleged masterminds of the September 11th attacks and other hideous terrorist acts, but real questions remain.

We need to listen to our military about how best to bring terrorists to justice.

The last thing America needs is the same Bush Republican behavior that has undermined victory in the war on terror and delayed punishing terrorists for five years.

The Senate Armed Services Committee is drafting bipartisan, responsible legislation that reflects the views of our senior uniformed military lawyers and will finally bring these terrorists to justice.

It's Time for a New Direction

Five years of failed Bush Republican leadership has taken America in the wrong direction, and it is time for a change.

Americans are struggling to make ends meet while the military is struggling with a civil war in Iraq.

The Do Nothing Republican Congress has no plans and no ideas, but Democrats are fighting to take America in a new direction.

Democrats offer leadership that serves all Americans, real security, better jobs at better pay, retirement security, and energy independence. Democrats offer a real change.
