Bush Advisers, With Eye on Dean, Formulate '04 Plans

New York Times

"President Bush's campaign has settled on a plan to run against Howard Dean that would portray him as reckless, angry and pessimistic, while framing the 2004 election as a referendum on the direction of the nation more than on the president himself, Mr. Bush's aides say."

If Republicans want the next election to be about positive thoughts, not Bush, then maybe Bush shouldn't be running. Why even have people running? I'd like to see a good campaign by an inanimate object. But not Bob Dole this time, please.

UPDATE: Geoffrey Nunberg critizes the Republican approach here.
