I watched both the DNC and RMC and I can't get passed the ridiculous smearing and out-of-context accusations going on. A few months ago I posted about how fed up I am with the presidential smear campaigns. I think it's only gotten worse.
I live in Massachusetts and both Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown have had fantastic ads for the Senate seat. They very quickly get to what they want to change or do, talk right into the camera, then the commercial is over. There hasn't been any he said, she said BS that I've seen. It's all about the strength of their own policies. Elizabeth Warren has had especially good ads.
In any case, the point I'm getting at is that this shit is turning me way off to the presidential race. I feel like everybody is lying to our faces and it's pathetic to me. It's a waste of my time to listen to these jokers. I know smear campaigns are a part of it, but I really don't think they have to be. A candidate that can stand on his own policies without knocking down the other guy has the kind of strong character I'd like to see. Tell us what you do, how you're going to do it, and why. We'll decide if we want you or not.
