Republicans to "Go Personal"

Proving time and again that they are incapable of adressing the real issues in a campaign and can only win through negative and misleading tactics the Republican Party plans to use the vast majority of its enormous warchest to launch a series of negative, personal attacks on Democratic Congressional candidates.

According to the Washington Post, the strategy is to "define" the opponents through opposition research of court, tax and other documents, and sway the debate from the issues, including Iraq (where the Republicans are incapable of winning) to personal attacks, where democrats are typically loathe to go.

Way to go, party of values. Keep showing us your ethical and moral superiority. And hey, best of luck in the private sector.

    Has anyone noticed on the so called debate shows how these fine people of values start to scream and level judgments at people... After having their say all they can do is block intelligent dialog by interrupting and refusing to shut up so the dems can get a word in.. I was brought up to believe that 'turn about is fair play" and you don't speak while others are speaking.... basic values my mama taight me.

  2. Excellent point. The level of discourse in this country has degenerated terribly. You just can't disgree anymore, you are either right or wrong, and too often conservatives confuse "right" with "correct" and worse, that they have a mandate from God to thrust this view on the rest of us.

  3. Hi Cara.

    How about you are either right or correct?
