    Honestly, vandalism is usually just vandalism. But why not try to make political hay? And even on the off chance this does turn out to be Dem operatives, I'm sure we'll hear how any instances of Rs vandalizing Ds are totally different.
    You do know that Democrats can be conservatives too, and in fact many of them are. Did you mean "Republicans are saints"?

He is a better candidate for the GOP but Carol Shea-Porter will win the election.
    Shea-Porter is leading in all the polls against both Guinta & Innis. I don't think enough Republicans know Innis, which is too bad. I really like him & his ideas. I haven't seen a single ad run here either, which I wish he would.

    Interestingly, Real Clear Politics is now labelling NH-1 a "toss up" and I'm not sure why that is. Last polls were from April and had her leading Guinta by 9 and Innis by 12 or so.

    If you somehow missed that elephant, maybe this story from 4 weeks ago will help you to see it:





    Carl DeMaio: Gay Candidate Says He Is Being Attacked By Liberal Groups Because He Is A Republican
    Obviously his office was attacked by racist homophobe redneck conservatives (is there any other kind?) And he should switch to the party of tolerance to avoid these situations in the future.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    One, this was unfortunate. There is no call for this type of vandalism at all, and it's especially an irresponsible and deranged way of making a political point if it was done with politics in mind.

    Two, all those claiming a solid guess of one group or another doing this are being ridiculous. There's little to no actual evidence that's been made public to give any clear insight into WHO did this. NONE. All that's being done is a bunch of hyper partisans using their own bigoted prejudices of the other side to immedietely claim it's likely them. The reality is that a motive to do this can easily be made for political entities on both sides of the aisle, and even for a non-political entity.

    Three, I hope the police do find out who did this and they bring them to justice. I also hope that this setback doesn't significantly harm the individuals electoral efforts.

    Keep your blinders on, sheeple. Those of us with our eyes open see clearly it was the North Carolina Duck Hunting Club.

    The Clintons aides did the same thing when they left The White House if you recall.

    Debunked story.

    With the election so close I would not be shocked to discover the candidate himself did this to arouse sympathy for him and trying to get the votes of those who would feel as the OP does.

    Engaging in violent acts against one's self, or against those whom you support in order to then blame the other side in an effort to discredit the opposition for personal or political purposes, is a liberal/progressive tactic, not a conservative one.... Violence, destruction of property and illegal behavior have become synonymous with the left over the last decade or so. Just compare the behavior of liberals from the Occupy Wall Street protests, with the behavior of conservatives at tax-day and tea party protests, and that says it all...

    Remember this one in Denver back in 2009:
    Colorado GOP Calls for Apology After Democratic Office Vandalism | Fox News

    How about this from GWU:
