Grade the State of the Union

This week, we all saw when George W. Bush acknowledged his failed Social Security privatization scheme he got something no one expected - thunderous applause from Democrats.

We were right to cheer the defeat of President Bush's Social Security plans - we fought and won to ensure the American people and one of the most successful programs in history were put first. Democrats will continue to fight to put American families first.

The generous support of DCCC members allowed us to air our ad on FOX News during the coverage of the State of the Union. Afterward, the DCCC's State of the Union Media Swat Team fought the Republican spin, sent feedback to newspapers, called-in to radio shows, and appeared on cable news shows to expose the GOP's latest mistruths and distortions. And, most of all, we fought back and started discussions with Americans nationwide about alternatives to Bush's special interest agenda.

Now, I want to hear from you.

Please fill out George W. Bush's State of the Union Report Card; let us know your thoughts about his failure to answer real questions and what instead is important to you.

We've got the momentum. Through your support and activism, I know that in just over nine months we will restore a Democratic Majority to the House. Already, the American people are hearing our call for change. That's why this week's ABC News/Washington Post poll revealed that Democrats lead Republicans - 54% to 38% - in 2006 Congressional election preferences.

The Democrats have a plan to get America on the right track. Democrats will support real security for the threats of tomorrow, and will always speak honestly to our service members and the American people. Democrats will keep good jobs from leaving the U.S., provide affordable healthcare for all Americans, reduce our reliance on foreign oil, develop a clear strategy for success from Iraq and protect Social Security and pensions so every American retires with dignity. Our only hope is to elect a Democratic House this year.

The DCCC is the only political committee whose principal mission is to support Democratic House candidates every step of the way. By working closely with grassroots supporters like you, we will ensure our Democratic candidates don't stand alone against the GOP's "win by any means necessary" tactics.

You are the key to our success. That's why I'm asking you to take a moment right now and share your thoughts by filling out this State of the Union Report Card on the Bush address and the Democratic response.

It all starts with you. Take a moment right now to fill out our State of the Union Report Card on the agenda put forth for this country by President Bush and the Republican leadership in Congress.

Thanks for all that you do. Together, America can do better and together, we'll fight the good fight and we'll win in November.


Rahm Emanuel
Chairman, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

PS: Getting out the truth to put America back on track will be a difficult task. We all must start now. Grade the president's speech now.
