President Is Still Mum on Agenda For Second Term

By Dan Balz
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, July 18, 2004; Page A01

As he campaigned around the country last week, President Bush asked voters to give him another four years to make the nation "safer and stronger and better." But with the election less than four months away, one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the president's campaign is what he would actually do if he wins a second term.

Bush's failure to detail a second-term agenda -- beyond his pledge to keep waging an aggressive war on terrorism -- represents a stark contrast to his previous campaigns, in which he set out a handful of priorities almost from the opening day and rarely deviated from them.

It seems clear to me that there is a master plan. We just don't get to know what's in store for us! He doesn't dare share these plans with voters. If we had been told what he had planned to do these past three years back in 2000, does anyone think the election would have been close at all? NO. I do not believe Americans would have been comfortable with his plans. He managed not to ever share any of it--the gutting of social security, medicare, environment, education, his war plans, etc. He's still doing this.

Secretive, dictatorial, and utterly untrustworthy. So what is the plan? Anyone care to guess?
