Time to dig in on REAL issues

Last week I suggested a response to the Foley kerfuffle; Republicans should go on an issues offensive and talk about War on Terror, taxes, economic growth, and border protection. I notice that one GOP candidate has cut an apology commercial (I wish I could remember who). I’m willing to bet that this will not placate any who might be detractors, nor will it shore up his base.

Bill Krystol has an excellent comparison of the two choices facing the American voter this fall. One the one side is our own Patty Wetterling continuing to spout her trifecta lie that GOP leaders “…admitted to covering up the predatory behavior of a congressman who used the internet to molest children.” On the other side is Nancy Johnson (CT) broadcasting a serious ad on a serious issue, listing to calls from Al Qeada into the U.S.

There are four weeks left in the campaign. That’s enough time for every GOP candidate to make and broadcast ads that show that the GOP is serious when it comes to global terror, the economy, and border protection where the Democrats are not. It’s the only way put the Foley matter to rest and steel ourselves for at least one more Democratic media bombshell.
