Collins' Response Devoid of Substance

Susan Collins released a video on her website today, meant to cut into the coverage Allen is receiving for his convention speech.


One thing that stands out about this clip is the complete lack of any mention of actual issues. Senator Collins talks about how much she likes her home town, bipartisanship, and her new bus, but in nearly two minutes she doesn't mention a single policy she's promoted or a challenge facing Mainers.

In contrast, Allen's short speech hit on the economy, small businesses, home heating oil, the energy crisis, the war in Iraq, and health care (twice). The difference is stark.
