Put it on a bumper sticker. For Brad Miller, or any other Democrat who is considering a run against Elizabeth Dole, your campaign does not need to be any more complicated than that.
Voters need to be relentlessly reminded that Elizabeth Dole has been nothing more than a loyal lap-dog for George Bush. His administration, and Dole’s judgment, have been disastrous both for our country and for North Carolina.
Rather than do any actual research for this post, and with all the same humility that Dick Cheney displayed when in 2000 his Vice-Presidential search committee chose himself, let me humbly link to my previous post The President’s Tool.
One final thought. North Carolina is a state that is proud of it’s military heritage. I think it is a fair question to ask Senator Dole whether she thinks her decisions have strengthened or harmed the military institutions in North Carolina. From the Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, to the soldiers at Fort Bragg who now have multiple 12-15 month deployments, to the North Carolina National Guard soldiers many of whom face a second deployment, and to the recruiting and retention of soldiers.
Senator Dole: are North Carolina military families better off now than when you were elected? If not, what responsibility do you accept for the decisions you have made?
Regardless of who runs against Dole, someone at NC Democratic headquarters needs to get the message out and start distributing Dole = Bush bumper stickers.
BlueNC is dedicated to making North Carolina a more progressive and prosperous state. If your intention is to disrupt this effort, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
