Democrats Bruce Tytler, Michael Arcuri, and Les Roberts each did a much better job of providing appropriate, substantial responses to the questionnaire than the Republican candidates did.
The most entertaining part for me came in seeing how Brad Jones and Ray "Hello World" Meier tried to answer the question on Iraq. What they managed to do was to answer the question without offering any real answer at all.
Where do Ray Meier and Brad Jones stand on the war in Iraq? Their position is this: Someone ought to develop a position.
I'm not kidding! Here's what they wrote.
"I stand behind our commander-in-chief; however, we need to establish legitimate goals that we can measure our progress against."
"You can't rewrite history. We need to articulate a clear plan to stabilize the Iraqi government, turn the government and defense of their country over to them and start bringing our troops home in an orderly way."
Is this the best that Jones and Meier can offer? Their plan for Iraq is that someone else needs to come up with a plan. Sorry, but that's been the plan of the Bush Administration for the last three years: Eventually, we'll think of something... Any minute now we'll come up with a plan... We're turning the corner... And another corner...
Progressive Democrats in the 24th District are coming up with real, specific plans to get us out of Iraq. All the Republicans can do is pass the buck and procrastinate.
With the Republican position for dealing with the Iraq War disaster, it's like the Ray Meier for Congress camapign web site keeps on saying: All the answers are perpetuallly coming soon.
