"The 1800 election was a rematch of the 1796 election. The campaign was bitter and characterized by slander and personal attacks on both sides. Federalists spread rumors that the Democratic-Republicans were radicals who would murder their opponents, burn churches, and destroy the country (based on the Democratic-Republican preference for France over Britain. At the time, the rather violent French revolution was in full swing). In 1782, George Washington (who had no political party) had complained "that you could as soon scrub the blackamoor white, as to change the principles of a profest [sic] Democrat; and that he will leave nothing unattempted to overturn the Government of this Country.” Meanwhile, the Democratic-Republicans accused Federalists of destroying republican values with the Alien and Sedition Acts, which were later ruled unconstitutional; they also accused Federalists of favoring Britain in order to promote aristocratic, anti-republican values."
As long as their are commercials, newspaper ads, loopholes allowing third party groups to do unlimited campaigning, etc., campaigns will remain dishonest. I support Obama because he's run an outstanding campaign, and in my opinion the election of Bush proved the campaign is more important than the candidate.
Ok, then he sould stop trying to wiggle out of what he did like the rest of them do by trying to come up with new definitions of "is". Didn't take him long to become just another politician. He took the low road this time Patters, not for going for the money but how he explained it all away.
