Does He Think These Questions Will Just Go Away?

Kerry's latest ad buy is a tremendously stupid gamble. Half his war chest will be blown with two months to go before the election on issues that may have little or nothing to do with the mindsets of the people coming to the polls in November.
The GOP is doing a pretty good job about making National Security the only issue in this campaign. And theyre effectively defining him as lacking resolve and moral clarity, to which he responds with "well, uhhhh, we can do better on jobs".

Thats not going to cut it. He has to show how he will make the country safer than Bush. And simply saying that he would do things different will not do the trick.

He has to show why its important to bring in the international community. And he has to show that doing as much doesnt mean outsourcing our national security to Paris.
He has to show that Bush has gone after Iraq while ignoring the threats in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Yemen. And he has to do that while convincing the anti-war types that he can address those countries with diplomacy and sanctions rather than tanks and bombs.
