Republican Convention

So, it sounds like it is going to be all 9/11 all the time over there. It is the only thing they really have to capitalize on: an emotional response to the tragedy. They have no ideas. Giuliani says that the election is more than picking conservative or liberal. It is about choosing a strong leader. It is because they can't fight on any issue of substance. All they can try to do is make Kerry look like one of poor character, and mister "my pet goat" look like some kind of leader. He also repeated the lie about Kerry calling himself an anti-war candidate. Giuliani also spent a good deal of time talking about how the US policy towards terrorism had to change after 9/11. Well, duh. Everyone, Bush included, didn't have terrorism as the #1 priority before 9/11. Bush is supposed to get sainthood for recognizing terrorism as a priority after 9/11? Would a president Gore, or a president Kerry not make a fight against terrorism a #1 priority. In my opinion President Bush took the easy, default positions on everything after 9/11. He coasted on his approval, talked about how he was going blow some stuff up, if you aren't with us you are against us, don't worry though, you don't have to sacrifice anything though, keep your SUVs.
