Republicans Candidates Remain Completely Substance-Free


TAPPED has had their finger on an important aspect of the presidential campaigns.

Obama, we’re told, only recently started to show some substance. Yet, by this standard, every major Republican candidate is about as substantial as tissue paper in a tornado. I’m not the first to notice this, but I was still taken aback by just how little Republicans seem to care about even appearing as if they have any ideas when I started poking around their websites.

Basically, the Republicans duck every significant issue, from Iraq to healthcare. When Democrats stop bashing Bush and turn their attention to their Republican counterparts, they’ll have lots of material to work with. For more details (or lack thereof) see this post.
