Plan and plan what is "plan"?

This has been bugging me for a while. Democrats keep complaining that Trump has "no plan". I guess I could just assume that the word (well, most words) have no meaning for the modern (that is, operating from leftist assumptions) Democrat, who only uses words for emotional manipulation, in rhetorical warfare, but, I suspected there was more to it.

This morning, I might have had an insight- VP Biden (the apotheosis of progressive Democratism, apparently) is seeing the lack of a "plan", of a particular type: a type he can crib from. A step by step procedure to criticize parts of and plagiarize others, to restate with more "feeling". He can't easily do that with the plans of a man like Trump, who doesn't spend a lot of time writing down and publishing every step, far into the (hypothetical) future, presumably because he knows that "no plan of battle survives contact with the enemy". Anyone who actually _does_ anything (which is not _very_ cut and dried) in the real world knows that it doesn't pay to spend too much time on the plan, since it will have to be altered repeatedly- if you spend all your time updating plans, you won't get much done.

I submit that VP Biden is not a person who does anything in the real world, and is consequently ignorant of the style of planning Trump uses, so, his complaint that there is no plan is really an admission that he doesn't know the meaning of the word and can't see the plan that right in front of his nose, because his career has never required him to make anything but "covers", empty promises, and character assassination attempts, which require little planning.
