Some polls indicate that President Obama and presumed Republican candidate Mitt Romney are tied in their race for the presidency. Rueters reports both men have made subtle changes in their campaigns.
Obama’s been painting Romney as a man who has often changed positions for political reasons. Now it appears the Obama campaign will portray Romney as a far-right conservative. His ads will also attack Republicans in Congress for saying “no” to Obama’s plans.
Romney is trying to sound a more positive note … talking about his vision for governing if he wins in November.
An Obama ad about the killing of Osama bin Laden questions whether Mitt Romney would have made the decision to kill the terrorist.
I don’t like that. I think a president can highlight his administration’s accomplishments without unfairly questioning what a political opponent may have done under similar circumstances.
I’d like to see all political candidates take the high road.
Our thought for today is from Robert Byrne:
“Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least.”
