  •  I had that very thought recently. (5+ / 0-)

    I think the real purpose of this campaign is not necessarily to elect Romney --that'd be gravy-- but to push flat-out propaganda techniques so the precedent is set for the next campaigns.

    This where something like Rmoney not releasing his taxes becomes no minor issue. Obfuscation and lying is nothing new in politics- but if the American public seems to accept that an almost certain tax cheat (on perhaps a huge scale) can get away with running on a "business" record- with no questions about the particulars of the business record really asked or allowed- then we just might have crossed a very bad threshold.
