Speedy Reactions Versus Preparing the Battleground

While I have been impressed with the Democratic speedy response (see previous post) to the Bush commercials, I am equally impressed with Bush's preparing the battleground before the fight. His initial attacks on Kerry's flip-flopping prepare the battlefield perfectly for more targeted attacks, such as the current ones on cutting intelligence funding, that Kerry must try to twist out of, putting him against the flip-flopping charge. See Dick Morris for more. Both show preparation before hand.
