The Abbott bounce vs the Rudd stimulus

This campaign seems to be mostly about offering voters things they don't want. The reforms Australia needs will have to wait until 2016.

‘If he wins, you lose’. The slogan for Labor’s new TV ads attacking Tony Abbott, has something for everyone. 

To die-hard Liberal voters, if Abbott wins they lose the carbon tax, mining tax, large budget deficits, 12,000 public servants of questionable value and quite a number of ‘boats’. In those voters’ minds, all good things.
