Moxie thinks so. And with good reason, considering Kerry’s political weakness on the War on Terror:
I’m not suggesting that domestic issues aren’t important but if we could ask the 3,000 people who perished in the attacks of 9-11 what they think the most important issue to consider when heading to the voting booth — do you think they’d say education, higher taxes, job creation or social services?
The inimitable Mark Steyn certainly thinks so:
Unnerved by sagging numbers, he decided to start the post-Labor Day phase of the campaign three days before Labor Day. The way things are going, Democrats seem likely to be launching the post-election catastrophic-defeat vicious-recriminations phase of the campaign round about Sept. 12.
And BlogsforBush points out that he’s acting just, well, loopy.
Captain Ed weighs in as well:
Make no mistake — despite the spin coming from the Kerry campaign, the Democrats are in full panic mode, and they don’t trust John Kerry to lead them out of it. That’s why the Clintonistas have taken command of the campaign. And if they don’t trust Kerry to lead them through hard times, why should we?
