George Bush may have delivered a rough draft of his convention speech while speaking in Springfield, Missouri yesterday. Set it alongside Kerry's acceptance speech and judge for yourself who says more about: education; outsourcing and worker training; our goals in Iraq; Vietnam; health care; taxes, and family values. Undecided voters who get hung up on "specifics" may prefer the Bush approach.
I also have taken to fuming about the fact that, in his speech, Kerry was fulsome in his praise for Vietnam veterans but didn't find time thank our brave soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq who are risking their lives today. George Bush does a bit better on that, too.
How is the Dem Panic Watch doing?
