Every time the Democrats focus on the Bushites' crimes and lies, the accusation comes from the White House that they are wasting time (on partisan things) rather than attending to the country's business.

When this happens --as happened as recently as yesterday (Friday, October 25)-- the Democrats should send their most eloquent spokesperson to the microphones to declare:

We took an oath to defend the Constitution. Clearly, our Founders who required that we swear such an oath thought that defending the Constitution is no waste of time. In fact, they thought it the most important duty we have.

If the president would stop violating his oath, then we wouldn't have to spend so much time honoring ours."

I believe that virtually every Bushite attack on their opponents, virtually every issue that is contests between the regime and its critics, is an opportunity that can be exploited to expose the basic Bushite pattern of evil, their crimes and their lies and their moral bankruptcy.

It is just a matter of finding the right creative strategy in each case to turn the energy of the confrontation into a weapon to discredit the Bushite regime still further in the eyes of the American people.
