What are average Americans supposed to take away from this Convention? From what I've seen so far, the message seems to be: We Republicans don't have a plan. We don't know how to fix the mess we've made so vote for Bush because Kerry is a flip flopper. What does it say about the Bush Administration that their best hope is beating down their opponent? Without the Swiftboat Vets for Bush and the Flip-Flop camgaign, Bush would be buried by Kerry.
