By espousing ideology - like Bush being about tax cuts, implying Kerry would spend through increases in medical care, etc. That is, the various jabs at each other frame Bush as a conservative (even though it's a joke) and Kerry as big government.BTW, just how the hell do debates "frame" as a man as "big government" or "conservative?"
Absolutely none. I was talking about the actual outcome from having the party in power. And I was saying 'smaller', not 'small'.Obama, for one, is not a small government man. Neither is Hillary Clinton. Nor Ralph Nader. Exactly which center-left and left politicians and policies are you talking about?
