I'm sick of the attack ads in both directions. I'm tired of hearing about a lawsuit over an American company that moved manufacturing to China and Cruz wasn't a political prisoner in Cuba, his father allegedly was! That would be like me trying to take credit for my father fighting on Guadalcanal.
At my age and with my political/legislative experience, I'm not surprised at this type of campaigning, but I'm certainly insulted that candidates feel comfortable treating their constituents like village idiots.
I agree Charles. Just onece I would like to see a campaign run based on the issues at hand instead of bashing the opposition. Can't anyone run a clean campaign anymore?
And I would like to see more votes cast in the election of a US President than an American Idol. As long as people are more interested in skeletons than issues, we'll be stuck with attack ads.
