Dodd: This Has Not Been a Very Good Two Months

An excerpt from the NYTimes:

WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 — Democrats are heading into this year's elections in a position weaker than they had hoped for, party leaders say, stirring concern that they are letting pass an opportunity to exploit what they see as widespread Republican vulnerabilities.

In interviews, senior Democrats said they were optimistic about significant gains in Congressional elections this fall, calling this the best political environment they have faced since President Bush took office.

But Democrats described a growing sense that they had failed to take full advantage of the troubles that have plagued Mr. Bush and his party since the middle of last year, driving down the president's approval ratings, opening divisions among Republicans in Congress over policy and potentially putting control of the House and Senate into play in November.

Asked to describe the health of the Democratic Party, Senator Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said: "A lot worse than it should be. This has not been a very good two months."

"We seem to be losing our voice when it comes to the basic things people worry about," Mr. Dodd

Like national security?

You know, the Dems are going about this all wrong. Rather than worry about how they are not exploiting perceived weaknesses in the Republican party, they should be coming up with their own plans for how to lead our country. Don't like how President Bush and the GOP are doing it? Then come up with real alternatives.

Instead of concrete answers, Americans get this from people like Howard Dean:

"If we get back in power, we are going to make a real effort to go get Osama Bin Laden. We are not going to let him lollygag around for four years after the September 11th attack. And also we are going to equip our troops with the body armor that they deserve in order to fight this war. We need to do a better job on defense than this President is doing."

How? He doesn't say how, and that's the problem. All rhetoric and no substance. That's todays' Democratic party in a nutshell.
