John Kerry exposes the Bush Plan as "Lie and Die"

Senator John Kerry was on fire on Imus this morning! The tired Republican 'cut and run' meme has been smacked down by the good Senator from Massachusetts, and he's proposed a counter:

The Bush strategy - "Lie and Die"

The Kerry/Feingold amendment for redeployment of our troops will be presented on the floor of the Senate tomorrow, so sign the letter at Kerry's site, and get on the horn and call your Senators! It's time for Iraqis to stand up for Iraq.

IMUS: What's this amendment now you've got -- you've got to introduce to me?

KERRY: It's an amendment to set a date a year from now which we believe is more than enough time within which to do what has to be done to get our troops home and to get the Iraqis standing up on their own.

Doesn't that just -- I mean, the obvious question would -- I've been asked a million times -- didn't that give them a heads up when it's going to be?

KERRY: No. On the contrary. What it does is provide the only opportunity for success. "Stay the course" is not a plan. And what this administration wants is to have a fake debate, as usual. They're -- you hear the drum beat on every television show from every commentator, "cut and run, cut and run, cut and run, cut and run." That's their phrase. They found their three words. They love to do that. And they're going to try to make the elections in November a choice between "cut and run" and "stay the course". That's not the choice. My plan is not "cut and run." Their plan is "lie and die." And that's what they are doing. They lie to America, what's happening on the ground. They lie about why we're there. They lie about what's happening. And our plan is very simple. It's redeploy to win the war on terror. Change to succeed. You have a better chance of success if the Iraqis are given notice that they've got to begin to take over and stand up for themselves. It's very simple. Iraqis have to fight for Iraq.

Senator Kerry, You're just rockin'.
