This from the John Kerry website
The first thing John Kerry will do is fight his heart out to bring back the three million jobs that have been lost under George W. Bush. He will fight to restore the jobs lost under Bush in the first 500 days of his administration. Kerry has proposed creating jobs through a new manufacturing jobs credit, by investing in new energy industries, restoring technology, and stopping layoffs in education.
Where to start? This reads like a freshman term paper.
I know that this is boilerplate, but is this really what John Kerry wants to present as a major plank in his platform?
To be bipartisan, I went to the website of George Bush. For the most part the writing is fairly good, although this was in the Agenda section on Education:
President Bush promised to make educating every child his top domestic priority and reform a system that has failed the most needy students in our nation's classrooms. He proposed a comprehensive, bipartisan plan to improve overall student performance and close the achievement gap between rich and poor students in America's more than 89,599 public schools. The President?s No Child Left Behind Act was passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority and is already showing results for America?s children.
My last comment about these two websites. George Bush's site seems more modest, although it is quick to point out what the GOP think are the President's strong points. At JohnKerry.com, one reads "headlines" such as
In the end, a website shouldn't determine one's vote, but the Bush team seems to have better html programmers and writers than the Kerry team.*
*I fully admit that I am not the best writer and understand that those "who live in glass houses" should be careful with stones.
