Dick Morris being Dick Morris

I have always respected Dick Morris's political instincts even though he is somewhat of a sleazy character. He took a failing president and got him reelected. Bill Clinton put his reelection efforts in Morris's hands and Morris got him reelected by understanding the American electorate and how the system works. Looking back at Clinton's shabby record the first 4 years of office, he should not have been so, in my opinion, Morris performed a political miracle.

Dick Morris lays the campaign out for President Bush. How much of this good free advice is used remains to be seen. The Republicans cannot play nice because the Democrats certainly are not going to. The totally out-of-touch, bizarre ads from the extremist groups that are part of the Democratic leftwing will be something to behold.

One part of Morris's advice I disagree with is for President Bush to lay low on the economy. He can't. It is about the only issue the Democrats have and it will be on the table. The best way to deal with it is to say that of course we have had a bad economy, the country was in a recession when President Bush took office and then 9-11 caused a major economic disruption, but now things, thanks to the tax cuts, are definitely improving and while we will not be able to return to the boom years in the late 1990s we will have in place the basis for steady, sustainable growth for the next 10 years. This is an easy, positive, upbeat sell and surely offsets the typical gloom and doom from the Democratic side. The usual Democratic tax and spend plans are recipes for economic disaster.
