And your belief that democrats have not offered an alternative approach to many, if not all, of Bush's policies only stems from your ignorance about politics. http://www.vote-smart.org/index.htm shows issue positions for many democrats and republicans and their support and alternatives to differing policies as well as links to their websites that also show differing policies. Try doing some research before you listen to 30 sec. clips on the news and expect to be educated.
And thanks for informing me about the "saddam`s audio tapes". Although I had to read about it myself. If you want to read about it go hear: http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/Investig... They are actually a decade old tapes made back in the early to mid 90s of Saddam saying that the US cannot stop a terrorist attack, but Iraq would not attack us. Damning st

If democrats had run things like republicans, they wouldn't deserve to be in power, I would be the first to admit that. One problem the democrats face is that the situations are so complicated that you can`t summarize a successful rebuttle to the "stay the course" soundbite. Take for example the 9 billion dollars lost in Iraq http://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/... Now this is where the main argument about "not screwing up" comes in to play. Now you could hold someone accountable (which hasn`t been done) or better yet, not lose 9 billion tax payers dollars. But of course the latter this isn`t an alternative to where to go from here, but a COMPLAINT about how things have been handled. But many complaints criticized deeply flawed rushed war policies that have created the problem to begin with. Republican policies. Simply put, complaints ARE acknowledgements of differing ideas.

Just Google "Saddam audio tapes" and you will find plenty of news stories about them.
You don't think the Democrats should come up with a better plan, KnightmareOH? I happen to agree with your analogy about being driven into the ditch, but jtc970 is right. The Democrats would rather complain than offer any ideas. They would rather see America hit with a hundred more disasters than offer ideas that could help the country while a Republican is in office, and you apparently agree with that mindset.
If you have some criticism for Republicans, that`s okay, but when you criticize, insult, and complain CONSTANTLY, then you are expected to provide an alternative. If your party can`t do better, then it should just shut up.

Also I am not asking what they would HAVE done different, I am askin what have they done, attempted, or even mentioned since a republican became president? Nothing.. the would rather do nothing and destroy this country rather than try to make it a better place while a republican is in office.
