Why politicians need to do attack ads at all is beyond me. Can’t we just focus on the issues and let the voters decide based on that? Unfortunately once they start they have to be responded to, in an ever escalating distraction from what really matters. Maybe by the next Presidential election all advertising will be banned. A simple fact sheet of all candidates should be mailed to all elligble voters, upon which a clear statement from the candidates as well as their voting records on those issues would be listed. Then we can have a President elected based on issues, not whether or not they windsurfed.
