Bush Attacks, Reid Counterpunches

by Steve

Message to Democrats: Pay attention to what Harry Reid did today. After Bush blamed Reid today for the GOP self-destruction on immigration reform, Reid threw it right back at him with the kind of framing and counterpunching in the face that all Democrats need to display. (Memo to John Kerry....)

President Bush accused Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid on Thursday of "single-handedly thwarting" action on immigration legislation, and got a brisk retort in return.
"President Bush has as much credibility on immigration as he does on Iraq and national security," shot back the Nevada Democrat.

It’s that simple. That’s all Democrats have to do. Punch back and hit hard. Every time Bush mouths off, hit him in the face rhetorically on his credibility and competence.
