In the last few months, the key vision of the Bush campaign (offered up in a series of speeches and battleground state television ads) has been that John Kerry is bad. When a policy is alluded to, it is only with a catchy phrase (like the ones quoted in the post below this one) to injure Kerry, Edwards or both.
Why wouldn’t the Bush team use this election cycle to lay out a plan and vision for the next four years?
Maybe the better question is: Why would they?
In modern campaigns, maybe policy proposas just get in the way.
