Just looking at Bush’s campaign site, it struck me as odd that Bush didn’t have any positive ads lately. Then I realized that it’s not. It just proclaims to the world something that liberals have known for years: Bush has failed. You know that when, after three years in office, a president still has to resort to negative advertising to get ahead in the polls. Most incumbents run on their records: that’s what Reagan did in ’84, and what Clinton did in ’96. When you can’t do that (Johnson in ’68, Carter in ’76) it assures defeat. I only hope people realize that Bush’s negative ads don’t show how bad Kerry will be: they show how bad Bush was.
