18. Murtha's Suggestion:" Less rhetoric, more solutions".
This was John Murtha's suggestion when he spoke at a town meeting with Rep. Morton in Virginia last month.

His general complaint was that the Republicans rely too much on catchy slogans to win (?) their argument. He suggested that we have MORE substantive solutions, MORE substantive debate, instead of rhetorical spin.

I think this is a suggestion (and cause) that Democrats should embrace in their political campaigns. :applause:
