POLITICAL MUDSLINGERS

POLITICAL MUDSLINGERS



What's the deal with all these vicious mudslingers in politics?

Frankly, I find these supposedly FAMILY VALUES political sleazebag campaigners smear tactics, dirty and disgusting. They continue spreading the most vicious ugly rumors and scandals about their opponent. What an example for the world and Americas youth!

A couple of smear tactic I found particularly ugly were an ad by Republicans National Committee, where a video plays a blonde woman says, "I met Harold at the Playboy party," and another where that repulsive Viagra Man, Rush Limbaugh accuses Michael Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson's disease.

If they would spend more time trying to finding, and presenting effective solutions to the American people’s problems, than wasting all their time with this constant private eye tactic of trying to find dirty little skeletons in each others closets, the U.S. might have a chance to once again, experience the American Dream!

God! And to think that these people who are not only running our lives, but also the entire world!

I personally find it tragic that these people are so intent in fighting SAME SEX marriages, when MANY of them are cheaters, womanizers, liars; thief’s, perverts, and wear pantyhose underneath their expensive designer suits!

The House and Senate need a change DESPERATELY, so between the two evils, I'm voting DEMOCRAT!

Sadly, both sides resort to mudslinging for one reason...

statistically, it works.

Consider the so called "October Surprise" of 2000. A couple of weeks before the election, a story broke about then Governor George W. Bush's wild DWI days in college, seemingly making him out to be a drunkard.

Why? Because there were some evangelical Christians out there who would never vote for a pro-choice candidate (i.e. Gore) but by making Bush appear so unfavorable, they were gambling that the evangelicals would sit home that election.

Statistically, it works, and both sides have always done it. I find it discouraging, myself.

Take care...beloved.

But why does mudslinging work? They all do it with each other. So then what all this means is, that the one who plays the dirtiest, wins? How can this be? They are suppose to represent the U.S. and its people.

I've been surfing some web sites, and am more disgusted than ever. Perhaps ignorance IS bliss!!

Ditto what duoraven said. The really sad part is that a recent study showed that the closer the race, the more effective mudslinging is.

I have a solution though. Dave for Dictator, 2008!

Rush Limbaugh accuses Michael Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson's disease.

Back in 2002, Fox told Diane Sawyer that he would stay off his meds or manipulate the dosage when he was going to testify before the Senate in order to better demonstrate the ravages of his disease. Rush's comment was that he may well have done the same thing for his political advertisements.

You fall so easily for these things, PG, and it makes me sad. One side will use a sacred cow to make their political statements for them so that the other side looks bad if (and when) they try to counter them. Fox entered the political arena for the Democrats this time; therefore, he should expect to come under scrutiny.

Oh, did you actually see the ad?

It should be right here. The "Playboy" bit isn't there for more than a few seconds.

Have you heard Kerry's latest assinity? saying that basically everyone in the military in Iraq are ignorant boobs? ID like to get close to him one time to kick him in the balls! The jail time would be worth it!

Dont vote a party, Vote for the one who best represents your American beliefs. George Washington in his farwell address warned the country against political partys.

Yes I have, but perhaps he meant something else. He was in the military, too.

Honest to God, I become more confused about all this. Just today, I was full fledged Democrat, and changed my mind on the same day!!

I'm leaning toward Democrat, but they want to take away our guns. When I lean Republican, Bush frightens me for what he's done to the Bill of Rights!!

Kerry calls us (military) stupid! Bush insists on keeping our soldier in Iraq where they're being slaughtered!

So confused!

People wave the flag of family values because they know that this country's dumb enough to fall for it. Just castigate gay marriage and flag burning enough times, and the voters will be on your side, regardless of your past indiscretions. You can fuck around on your wife, but as long as you tote family values with seeming sincerity, people will look past your marital flaws. America's not that bright, but then again, we re-elected Bush and would probably do it again if Hilary Clinton ran cause people think she's a bitch. Better to have an incompetent, borderline insane, fiscally irresponsible asshole in charge than a bitchy woman, eh?

This country's something else, innit?

America is in decline and has been for a while now. Both parties would rather talk about stuff like same sex marriage rather than face the issues that really are hurting this country. Our crushing debt, our declining infrastructure, our weaker economy and place in the world being challanged by China and increasingly the EU. That and a whole host of issues that would require unpopular and very hard choices. The last time any president tried to address our oil consumption levels and try and get us to cut back, we couldn't get rid of him fast enough! Yes Carter had some other baggage too with Iran, but his trying to address real issues doomed his reelection bid.
I am a life long Republican. But these guys have really dissapointed me for years now. We had a chance to fix this country and then they gave us Bush as president. *shakes head sadly* That guy shouldn't have gotten elected as a dog catcher much less president! He is an idiot, a coward and is the last kind of person we should ever even think about electing to any office. No wonder our country is in shambles.

Food for thought...
Someone asked you "why you think that the Democrats are trying to take away our guns" and that That was "a bunch of Republican lies no democrat I know is for that."

Well It was a Democrat that ordered all the firearms Confiscated from the legal gun owners in Louisiana who were within the Hurricane area. The illegle gun owners did not turn theirs in. It is a Democrat that is trying to ban concealed carry in New York City. It is the possible #3 person in the Country if the Democrats take over the House (Nancy Pelosi) who made the statement that she agrees with the U.N. move to try and ban personal gun ownership in the US.

In 2003 it was the democrats that pushed the ban on "assault style" weapons, in 2001 it was the Democratic senators that attempted to close a loophole in the 1993 Brady Act, which allows individuals who would not be able to buy weapons in a gun store to buy them at gun shows, flea markets, and swap meets. There are Gun Ban movements going on right now in Boston and San Francisco, being pushed by Democrats.

All these things and more have been reported by the Media and can be validated by those who do not believe them.

Finally Do not think that if one wears the republican mantel, they are Pro-gun owner. Arnold Schwarzenegger supported the Gun ban in California and Bush supported the extension of the Assault weapon ban as well as did other republicans. As I said before, Vote for the person not the party and the best way to see if they will take your weapons is ASK them and check their records.
