Romney and Obama – Evil vs Evil
by Henry Shivley
July 16, 2012
I have heard the expression “the lesser of two evils” more times than I care to count in the last couple of months. So will it be Mitt Romney or Barack Obama? Which is the lesser of two evils? It is bad enough that we have been reduced to this question, but to add insult to injury, the ad campaigns are not designed to portray their candidate as a better person and manager than the other candidate. The campaigns instead are no more than about showing just how lowdown dirty and diabolical the other guy is.
Hence, “Vote for Barack Obama because he is not as evil as Mitt Romney” or vice versa. So is this what we are going to settle for? Shall we sit down, pad and paper in hand, and listen to every Mitt Romney ad and list every evil aspect and act of treason committed by Obama? And then take a day watching Obama ads noting every aspect and act of treason committed by Mitt Romney? I guess this is voting made simple as all we have to do is make a count and vote for the one with the least entries on our score sheet.
I ask you again, is this what it has come to?
