Democrats' convention no party
The Kansas City Star
The Democrats’ convention this week needs to be less of a party and more of a board room meeting with a specific plan on how to pull the economy out of the ditch.
The vague notions of hope and change, which Barack Obama used to get elected in 2008, will be a “no sale” in November. President Obama and the Democrats will need to deliver more specifics than a meeting of the Federal Reserve to win votes.
They also will have to develop a plan for holding the Senate and recapturing the House from Republican control. If Obama wins a second term, the only way he will be successful is if he has a Congress that will enact his economic plan.
Without that, he will have a long four years.
