    Bah, as usual I'm late to the party and all the "likes" have been given away.

    Of course the ad is dishonest, and because the ad actually took words Romney's people knew had not been Obama's and accused him of saying those words in 2008, it crosses the line of usual political distortion. If anyone legitimately believes that this ad is not dishonest, then they need to reacquaint themselves with a refresher course in Ethics 101.

    ethics?.. in politics?.... surely you jest!

    I agree that it's dishonest... but i'm not too bent out of shape over it... Romney is being dishonest about Obama being dishonest about McCain being dishonest. about.. i dunno.. Hitler ... who cares.. it's all dishonest.

    Mostly I'm annoyed because I don't want to vote for Obama, and out of the GOP's current crop of clowns the only one I was interested in considering was Romney. So yeah, I'm a bit upset to see that he's just a dishonest prick like the rest of them. Looks like I'll be doing another write-in vote. Bummer.

    I wonder how many votes Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck are going to get next year.

    Why does the neo-conservative base always vote while logged out? It's funny how the crazy point of view is always over-represented by those who are not logged in or who are guests.

    The reason politicians feel like it's ok to lie and distort the truth can be summed up in two words
    who cares
    We are leaving our children and grand children a great legacy,setting a great example, holding up great role models for them but like you said
    who cares

    The ad is dishonest but it is par for the course in this generation's political climate. I'm not going to overdramatize it and say that its a tug of war for the nation's soul...maybe more Like a bull with a head on both ends trying to move forward.
