Has anyone heard anything about how the Republicans will try and fix the economy so far during their Convention? Not a peep. They practically hid the fact that it IS a Republican Convention. And as Rick Davis says:

"This election is not about issues," said Davis. "This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates."

It's a party of no ideas because the old ones do not work. They are good at attack dog politics, which is what Davis means. Well, they did add a few new ones like the preemptive doctrine or--attack anyone the neocons want. Then scold other nations when they copy that policy.

I'm sure tonight McCain will talk about making Bush's tax cuts permanent because the economy is so bad---because Bush's tax cuts worked so well in making the rich, really rich, yea---the country is very happy---which he wants to make permanent. And then I reckon we'll hear how he'll make health care more affordable because he'll demand health insurance companies give you better prices. See, easy fix. Then the rest of the night will be about how he knows how to win wars. WAR, WAR, WAR...
