Framing the debate
Lynn Cheney ask the question that all Republicans should be asking and the pollsters should be asking. She did it in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer:
CHENEY: Right, but what is CNN doing? Running terrorist tape of terrorists shooting Americans. I mean, I thought [Rep.] Duncan Hunter asked you a very good question, and you didn’t answer it. Do you want us to win?That is the question that should be put to all voters, because it is clear that many Democrats do want to lose the war in Iraq. Those who want to lose should be required to explain how losing is going to help the US.
WOLF: The answer of course is we want the United States to win. We are Americans. There’s no doubt about that.
CHENEY: Then why are you running terrorist propaganda?
WOLF: With all due respect, this is not terrorist propaganda.
CHENEY: Oh, Wolf.
