    Democratic Closing Argument: Personal Attacks
    Democrats Attack Over Personal Issues, Republicans Over Policy

    By JONATHAN KARL
    Oct. 28, 2010

    EXCERPT

    As you watch this year's ads -- and I've been watching all too many lately -- you'll notice a striking difference between Democratic and Republican attack ads: Democrats are attacking over personal issues, Republicans are attacking over policy.

    There are, of course, many exceptions, but the overall trend is clear. Democrats are hitting their Republican opponents over past legal transgressions, shady business deals and even speeding tickets. Republicans are hammering Democrats over "Obamacare," Nancy Pelosi and the economy.

    Republicans are arguing substance and democrats are hiding from their record behind smear tactics.

    I don't get it.

    Why aren't democrats touting their accomplishments?

    Like the health care bill?

    Oh wait....

    Never mind.

    I'm voting for Troy Stanley because I agree with him on guns, abortion, and a balanced budget amendment and because he's not a Republican. You can read more about him on his website. http://www.stanley10.com/

    Just curious, why not the incumbent or one of the two write in candidates?

    The incumbent is someone I don't have a huge issue with, but don't agree with much. I tried to research the two write-in candidates, but found nothing. Their contact information is on the elections division's website, but I shouldn't have to call a candidate to hear about him. Put up a website or something.

    So Troy Stanley wants a law in Florida like the Arizona illegal immigrant law.

    That's interesting.

    You can't always find a candidate you agree with everything on. Troy Stanley is still the best choice to be the next representative for Florida's Fourth Congressional District.

    Except for a few candidates like Rand Paul and the woman trying to unseat Harry Reid, you all are putting right back into office the liberal trash we got rid of two and four years ago. How many times do we have to go through this cycle before it dawns on everyone that it will make no difference?

    Until it is realized that the difference is not between Democrats and Republicans, but the Democrat/Republican entity and the Constitution, nothing will change.

    Under the current system, it is almost impossible to be elected on a third party. So you must "play by the rules"

    Until folks start getting involved with their local Rep or Dem parties. By being a committee man, than you have more of a voice in choosing who will be your nominee.
    Also, fusion States can be helpful when there is a conservative party on the ballot line

    I'm a strong supporter of electoral fusion. I disagree that you should "play by the rules" and only vote major party. I'm voting for Troy Stanley and Dave Baldwin for Congress and State Rep, respectively. They are both independents.
