I disagree with your premise.

While Romney carries his own baggage (plenty of it) he can’t be faulted for what others say and do on his behalf.

The same applies to Obama- he cannot and ought not be held responsible for what others say and do. Recall the ‘General Betrayus’ campaign or the group who claimed they had ‘bought and paid for the Democrat Party’.

Our world.

re: #1 researchok

The public hand-wringing of politicians over the “uncontrollable” PAC attack ads is nothing more than theatre. I disagree with the premise that the presumptive GOP candidate has no control over the message put out by the PACs. It’s not as if the ads are being run by the WBC.

re: #1 researchok

Are you then saying the Dems and Obama actually approved of the General Betrayus ads and the notion the Dems have been bought and paid for?

re: #3 researchok

I think that if an important enough group of politicians feels strongly that a political message is damaging or wrong, that message will not be broadcast. At the very least, Romney is not interested enough in quashing the ad to have it stopped.

We’ll see if the ad is pulled.

We’ll see if the ad is pulled.

Neither of our points can be conclusively proven by the pulling or not of the ad :)

I could argue if it is not pulled that Romney doesn’t want it pulled, and if it is pulled, you can argue that it was by the free will of the PAC.

I actually can imagine Rmoney doesn’t want ads run about Rev. Wright. If you can talk about Obama’s religion, it’s fair game to talk about Romney’s and I don’t think he wants to talk about Mormonism at all. Opening the floodgates on the ugly works both ways.

re: #8 (I Stand By What I Said Whatever It Was)


OK, fine. I guess we get to bring up the fact that Romney spent 30 years in a church that preached that black people didn’t have souls and couldn’t get to heaven because of the Curse of Cain or Ham or Whomever.
