Talking About the Issues
Over at my own blog, The Glittering Eye, I’ve begun a week-long discussion of critical policy issues—you know, the pressing issues at hand that are being submerged in the horserace aspect of the election, the scandal du jour, the sound bites, and the sloganeering. I’m hoping to start a discussion of issues that are at least a little free of the campaign boilerplate—for people to talk about what they want to see rather than what they’re being promised and what they’ll probably be stuck with.
The introductory/kick-off post is here. My proposed schedule is:
|Tuesday, October 7, 2008||Foreign policy|
|Wednesday, October 8, 2008||Fiscal policy|
|Thursday, October 9, 2008||Economic policy|
|Friday, October 10, 2008||Health care|
|Saturday, October 11, 2008||Energy policy|
|Monday, October 13, 2008||Conclusion|
I’d welcome the participation of my fellow OTB associate bloggers either here or on their own blogs. If you’ve got a blog of your own, please join in.
