the main strategy of political parties

Here’s a little political nugget to chew on for a while :

Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule — and both commonly succeed, and are right. ~ H.L. Mencken

Think about this concept when you watch news programs and hear all the slander directed at President Bush and the Republican party.  And it sometimes goes the other way, too, though not as often, it seems.

I get really tired of all the backbiting and slander that goes on between the political parties.  It would be really refreshing for them to actually explain how they would do things better instead of complaining that the other party is incompetent.

I know… I wish they (both parties, but the Dem’s especially) would take the approach JFK did to get elected in the early 60’s. He realized that the country was happy (for the most part) with the way Eisenhower has been leading the US, so didn’t want to take the attack approach. His approach was “yes, the Republicans have been doing good, but I and the Democrats can do better! And here’s how…”

Do you hear this now? Unfortunately not, and it’s getting to the virulent level on the left…
