    Is This Ad Fair?

    Watch the ad. The question is whether it is fair to attack Romney in the way the ad does, using the words of other republicans, and is it fair to attack his record at Bain?



    Edit: I realize what is fair or unfair is somewhat ambiguous and is done intentionally.

    Addition is neither fair, nor unfair. Subtraction, on the other hand....

    In terms of whether Romney added jobs I think it is fair, because he has made the claim that he has. Other than that, I am a bit more iffy beceause it seems to be just your basic attacks.

    Sure, it's fair, especially since Romney is using his corporate experience as proof that he would make a good president. It's also really boring.

    Its fair in the sense that Romney touts his corporate experience as a qualification for president, so it is "fair game" to attack it.

    It's unfair in the sense that the American public deserves to have a political campaign that is about the issues, not a bunch of pointless nonsense.

    If whats in the ad is true then sure it is fair to use their words to attack Romney. I am no Romney fan so my view on this is probably biased.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It is also unfair to screw up my joke by pointing out that I edited.

    All is fair in love and war. Politics is just war without the blood.
