Leaked: Majority Leader Boehner’s Confidential Strategy Memo For Thursday’s Iraq Debate

As if there was any doubt about republican tactics, Think Progress uncovered John Boehners confidential strategy memo for an upcoming Debate on Iraq.
Tactics include:
1. Exploit 9/11. The two page memo mentions 9/11 seven times. It describes debating Iraq in the context of 9/11 as “imperative.”

2. Attack opponents ad hominem. The memo describes those who opposes President Bush’s policies in Iraq as “sheepish,” “weak,” and “prone to waver endlessly.”

3. Create a false choice. The memo says the decision is between supporting President Bush’s policies and hoping terrorist threats will “fade away on their own.”

Read it.. send it to your republican friends and let them know how stupid their leaders think they really are.
