GOP Debates Need for Agenda to Pitch Voters

WASHINGTON (AP) - It's not easy crafting an agenda for the fall
elections. Just ask Republicans.
They set up a website to solicit ideas, only to see liberals
flood it with distinctly un-Republican suggestions. When
Republicans invited the public to rank proposals online, critics
lampooned the effort for ideas such as ending a federal program for
"historic whaling partners."
Republicans don't even agree on whether they need a new agenda.
With voters so divided over President Barack Obama's health care
and spending initiatives, some think the GOP needs only a plausible
job-creation platform and a staunchly anti-Obama stand on nearly
everything else.
Amid the indecision, Democrats keep linking Republican
candidates to George W. Bush.
