Still thinking about canvassing this past weekend, which causes one to pare down one’s political pitch to the basics, because you don’t have much time to express yourself — out of courtesy for the listener.
You know, we gotta keep this simple. The GOP is really just teeing it up for us for next week.
Were George Bush’s economic policies a success?
Do you think more war is a good idea?
Or should we generally try to stay out of it?
Is it good that we still have an American auto industry?
Or is it bad?
Why was Romneycare OK for Massachusetts…
… but a catastrophe for the country?
Should we have Medicare more-or-less the way it is?
Or should we drastically pare it down, hollow it out, privatize it?
Who had a better foreign policy: Barack Obama?
… or George Bush?
Do rich people need more tax cuts?
Did tax cuts for the rich work out well for the middle class in the last 10 years?
Or not so much?
Do the big banks who broke the economy need fewer rules?
Or a shorter leash?
Etc. This ain’t hard. The choices are clear. We’ll be fine.
