My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Still Not Getting It

I just saw the Kerry ads in response to the Bush ad from yesterday. It contends that the $900 billion tax increase doesn't exist, and that he's actually advocating more tax cuts for the middle class, and that he will take care of medicaire. . .blah, blah, blah.

This is encouraging for two reasons. One, for the first time in months the Bush campaign has defined the playing field. The Kerry campaign is now striving to parry, rather than thrust--good. Secondly, if memory serves the Bush ad included attacks on Kerry's record on defense and intelligence spending; and Kerry did not respond to those at all. As I've posted before, they're still missing the boat: in this environment, the day after the horrors in Spain, he doesn't defend himself on the fundamental issue of the day.

Score one for Bush.
