Mr. Mondale Says He'd Raise Taxes If Elected And Says Mr.
Mr. Mondale says he'd raise taxes if elected and says Mr. Reagan will too. If
he's going to base this campaign on truth and candor he's got even less chance
than we thought.
How about that footage on the news yesterday of our new Commander-in- Chief on the deck of the aircraft carrier (Teddy Roosevelt?
).. After throwing one of his snappy salutes (he's *almost* got that down), I half expected him to give the order, "Let's turn this thang around....
Mr. Reagan says he's engaged in "quiet diplomacy" with the Soviets, and we gather that means more than that he's simply turned the volume down on his hearing aid.
A new poll shows most Democrats want a Mondale-Hart ticket....
Democrats say Mr. Reagan has a secret plan to raise taxes.
Big deal. Even if he does, our system requires him eventually to leak the news to Congress....
Mr. Mondale calls Mr. Reagan's statement that he has no plans for a tax increase a "fish story.
It looks as if this campaign will be no different from most others: carp, carp, carp....
I thought you'd all like to hear about the potential candidates meeting with the Wizard of Oz.
.. First, President Bush went to see the Wizard and said, "Everyone says I have no compassion or feelings, I wish to have a Heart"....
If he's re-elected and serves a full second term, Mr.
Reagan will be almost 78 when he leaves office. By Kremlin standards that's barely middle age....
Mr. Reagan says he can't understand why interest rates are so high.
Well, an old editor of ours always said that when we couldn't understand something we should look for the part money plays in it....
No, just because Mr. Mondale says he's begun "broad consultations" with party leaders about a running mate doesn't mean he'll select a woman.
Our friend Orly says he figures Mr. Mondale put Ms.
Ferraro on the ticket just to help him skirt more issues....
