GOP to run ad showing Dems' "white flag" strategy

"White flag strategy" is the same thing as "French strategy", so don't be confused!

From Drudge:

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks.


The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week.

A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue to pander to the anti-war activists within our party.”

The web video advances the Republican contention that the Democrats only have a “retreat and defeat” message on the war in Iraq.

The video highlights the effect Democrats can have on the morale of U.S. soldiers.

One Republican strategist familiar with the ad said, “The Democrats, especially Howard Dean have a way of trying to turn the tables and say ‘that’s not what I meant’ – its just those ‘evil Republicans’ This video will make them crazy – it reinforces what they really believe with what they actually said – and that is devastating for the Democratic Party.”
"Out of context"? I heard your words myself, Dean! What's to take "out of context"? That means that he doesn't like the static he's getting outside of the MSM and he wants to defuse it by saying we didn't understand him correctly. Really, Howie? It must be some of that famous liberal "nuance" we keep hearing about.

The GOP is giving you plenty of ammo to use against them, Deaniacs. Fortunately for the GOP, though, you guys are about as effective as a "sternly worded UN resolution" in using the ammo.

I mean, by picking a liberal New Englander (Kerry) to run for President last year, a liberal New Englander (Dean) to head the party, and presumably choosing a liberal New Englander (Shrillary) to be your party's Presidential candidate in 2008, it's almost like you just don't want to win anymore!
