Vote for me!

I've seen lots of discussion about a liberal bias in the media. Well, if they're trying to prop up John Kerry's campaign, either they're doing a lousy job of it, or Kerry has a really lousy campaign.

I have my share of concerns about Bush, but if anybody wants me to vote for them, they better tell me some specifics about their ideas for governing the country, not just tell me how poor a job Bush is doing.

I can say, as well as Kerry does (or maybe better) how Bush didn't act quickly enough, or too quickly, or didn't get enough international support, or is implementing the wrong policies, or isn't implementing intelligence reforms quickly enough, or that I wouldn't have made the same mistakes Bush made. So, why not vote for me?

And what I heard of John Edwards' convention speech wasn't much better. It's nice to hear that we can have affordable health care for everyone, that we can have equal education for everyone, etc., but if you don't tell me how we can, it's just a bunch of hot air.

Give me specifics! The only specifics I've heard were that Edwards was going to pay for everybody's health care and education by making the richest 2% of Americans pay for it. There's got to be more than that.
