Yes, I question the timing...

It is very telling that the New York Times, a leftist newspaper, waited until after the election to admit what everybody who could rub two brain cells together knew. The democrats have no real plan for Iraq.

Americans are waiting to hear if [Democrats] have any good ideas for how to get out of Iraq without creating even wider chaos and terrorism.

[…]

The Democrats will also need to look forward — and quickly. So far they have shared slogans, but no real policy.

[…]

Voters gave the Democrats the floor — and are now waiting to hear what they have to say.


HT to Brain Terminal, where Evan Coyne Maloney nails it:
Waiting to hear what they have to say? Isn’t that what campaigns are for? You’d think the Times would have noticed that the Democrats had nothing to say before the election, but for some reason the paper thought that minor detail wasn’t worthy of coverage until now. I wonder why that is.
