What is the content of the RNC speeches so far? Personality descriptions, personal history stories, and defending low taxes on the rich, without discussing the economy at all. Oh, and empty applause after each sentence with a pause. That's 99.9% of the presentations at the RNC.
There are no policy discussions, other than misleading statements about taxes. And there's no discussion of the state of the economy. Sure - there's opinions, like "abortion is the killing innocence", and "Victory in Iraq" - but no policy. Policy was an important part of the DNC, but here, neither.
Sarah Palin's speech? She described how good and heroic a person John McCain was, how her story and family, how Barack Obama was someone to laugh at dismissively, and how Republicans would lower taxes and bring victory. It was completely empty sentiment, with applause.
Why are republicans so afraid of policy, and so careful to not confront the economy that they could be working to help out with?
How is this a reason for Republicans to hope for Republican victory? This seems entirely distraction, zero actual reason to move forward with a Republican agenda.... because they never actually discussed the Republican agenda! Are they ashamed of what they stand for?
