Do We Really Want A Bully For President?
mcclatchydc.com — I am beginning to see one thing of value in the Eternal Campaign and the relentless scrutiny to which it subjects candidates: By the time you vote, you have a pretty good idea of what kind of man or woman you are voting for. That wasn’t necessary this time around with President Barack Obama. We’ve been watching him in office for close to four years, and, like him or not, we know what he’s all about. The new kid on the block this time around — except for the citizens of Massachusetts, who saw him as governor — has been Willard “Mitt” Romney. And after the events of the past several weeks, especially the second presidential debate, two things are as clear as clear can be about Romney. First, he’s a bully. Second, he’s a relentless and spectacular liar. Either of these traits is bad enough by itself, but in combination they’re downright sinister, should this man become president.
