Reid's Romney smears an insult to voters - CNN.com "These are great issues calling for serious debate. And we actually have two candidates for president who are credible, serious men. But they are running a campaign that has the sensibilities and IQ of a typical middle school student council election. With the values of an episode of "Real Housewives" or "Big Brother." I cannot help but agree with this article, as most of what I hear in the news regarding the presidential race is back-and-forth mudslinging that simply provokes me to change the channel. I'm sure there are others out there that feel the same way, but apparently some people just eat this stuff up. Just glancing through the threads on this board, I'm seeing discussions on serious issues such as Romney dressing like a cop in college, Obama's grades in college, "Romney's company killed my wife", etc. Mr. Reid, why not attack Romney for not having voiced an opinion on the Patriot Act? Oh yeah, Obama allowed its extension. Or perhaps someone from the Romney camp would like to point out to loyal Dem voters how Obama has only furthered the failed "War on Drugs"? I suppose the fact that Romney would pretty much continue the same policy would make such an attack counterproductive. So I guess a better question would be, are American voters as stupid as campaign staffers think we are?
