Dullest Campaign Ever - NYTimes.comQuicklink submitted by Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
|Brooks hit the nail on the head with a look at this campaign. I could not have said it better, but I take issue with the title. This is not the dullest ever, it is the most dishonest and destructive in history! If one looks at the money spent to attack opponents rather than offer real solutions, money that could have built roads, fed people, paid teachers and government workers, stimulated job creation --HELPED AMERICANS-- it is OBSCENE! Brooks says: 'American politics went through tremendous changes between 1900 and 1936, and then again between 1940 and 1976. But our big government/small government debate is back where it was a generation ago. Candidates don't even have to rehearse the arguments anymore; they just find the gaffes that will help them pin their opponent to the standard bogyman clichés.'|
