The State of the Presidential Campaign

What we are seeing from Mr. Obama and Biden and the Democrats is low class, Chicago Thug Politics on full display.

Pres. Obama tells a 6 year old girl that Gov. Romney is a "Bull......r" at a public rally.   He has been frequently calling Mr. Romney a "liar" in public.

V.P Biden at a funeral ceremony, asks Charles Woods, father of a dead Navy Seal Tyrone Woods, "Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls ?"

Vulgar sexual innuendo aimed at seducing young women to vote for Mr. Obama.

We're used to decades of Democrat 'Civil Discourse": 

"Romney killed this woman."

Democrat video of Rep. Ryan pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair over a cliff.  Republicans stealing Granny's medications and Social Security and throwing her out in the snow.  Republicans starving children, putting Blacks back in chains, etc. etc. etc.

Where is discussion of the economy and jobs and the suffering middle class ?

Where are answers for what happened in Libya and why help never came for the brave Ambassador and the Navy Seals who willingly gave their lives to save the people at the Embassy/Safe House/Annex ?

Where is the vision for what needs to be done to get the economy going again ?

This is not what we expect from a President...from a graduate of Harvard Law School....from a gentleman. Mr. Obama was going to unite us, get the Muslim world to like us, even slow the rise of the oceans.

What we are seeing from Mr. Obama and Biden and the Democrats is low class, Chicago Thug Politics on full display. We are seeing behind the Curtain at Oz. We are seeing an angry, entitled, narcissistic little man who has had everything handed to him in life, who has no real life experience, who has never created a business or job.  He is in way over his head and can only strike out in anger.

@ T minus 6 and counting we can only hope that enough Americans have seen it. Obama is counting on the young vote - over half of which can't find the jobs he promised four years ago. Empty promises have lead to empty dreams for millions of young people who now see Chicago sytle politics for what it is. Hopefully they are the voters that will make a difference and that they still turn out, only this time for Romney-Ryan. A switch by one person carries the weight of two if they do and will carry the election. The trail of broken promises by the Democrats is wider than the path of devistation by Hurricane Sandy. All they have done is blame others for the failure of their actions.

Millions of people waking up this morning to a world they barely recognize, no power, massive cleanup and recovery. In the midst of it, neighbors are reaching out to help and support one another, doing what we do best, coming together in a crisis. Yet this drivel is what the Brookfield Patch considers worthy of posting in the moment. Sad, really sad.

It is very unfortunate that the political ads have come to this. I have seen the ads mentioned above and today I saw a "nice" ad from the Romney camp in contrast! I can't say the Republicans are totally blameless...the McMahon/Murphy ads have been rough on both sides!!
Linda Taylor October 30, 2012 at 08:38 PM
Kathie your comments did not appear until AFTER I had posted mine...It IS times like this when there is no such things as politics and it doesn't matter what your party affiliation is...we are human beings FIRST and we are all in this together. If anyone knows of someone that is in need please post ..any one of us would more than happy to help...including ALL that have posted on this page!
Steven DeVaux October 30, 2012 at 10:35 PM
Linda, It's what makes America great.
Diogenes October 31, 2012 at 09:39 AM
Oh Robin... It seems that you took the hypocritical oath instead of the hippocratic oath. A call for "civil discourse" from someone who's last blog tittle was "Obamacare Sets a Price on the Value of Each Year of Your Life," and then only cites as its evidence a single uncited anecdote. Do you hear yourself?
Diogenes October 31, 2012 at 09:49 AM
Regarding the claim that Romney is a liar and a "bull-s_ter." HE IS... Unless, of course, he has a multiple personality disorder or some other psychiatric illness. It is impossible to vehemently hold EVERY side of EVERY important issue AND be sincere. Some change and evolution is understandable, but c'mon, seriously? Claiming to be voting "FOR Mitt Romney," on a given day is like pinning jello to a wall...
Diogenes October 31, 2012 at 09:58 AM
Finally, you refer to Obama as an " entitled, narcissistic little man who has had everything handed to him in life." Really? Without pointing out the ridiculousness of that statement, on its own merits, it does beg the question, "in comparison to whom?" Right.... Mitt is such a self made man. Through your blog are you trying to paint a caricature of the tea party?
Diogenes October 31, 2012 at 10:21 PM
Linda and Steven- I could not agree with your sentiments more. It may help to remember that our taxes are often one of the concrete ways that we really do help our fellow human beings. It is what we do collectively AS WELL as what we do individually that makes America great!
Dr. Robin Appleby November 01, 2012 at 10:25 AM
"All white people will go to Hell" says Pastor Joseph Lowery, the pastor who gave the benediction at Mr. Obama's inauguration. Pastor Lowery is shocked that any black Americans would stay home with Mr. Obama on the ballot. In racially explicit terms, Pastor Lowery said, "I dont know what kind of n..... wouldn't vote with a black man running." Pastor Lowery also said that, " All he (Mr. Obama) did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk the country with Romney." In 2009, President Obama awarded Pastor Lowery the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
DICK STEINBERG November 01, 2012 at 07:51 PM
can you print out the full text of the Lowrey statement you refer to.
DICK STEINBERG November 01, 2012 at 08:02 PM
never mind. i found it as anyone can by going on the internet. Lowrey explains it was a joke and that when he was a young militant in his surroundings he did believe that. I do not condone the use of the phrase but I do remember the words from a song in South Pacific:"You've got to be taught to hate those your relatives hate, you've got to be taught".
David Propper November 01, 2012 at 08:23 PM
Are these the words we want to hear from one of our supposed town leaders with 35% of Brookfield still without power? What about pulling together during a time of crisis?
Spanky Dorise November 01, 2012 at 09:45 PM
clearly cited those were not Dr. Appleby's words
David Propper November 01, 2012 at 09:49 PM
The words may not have originated from his mouth Spanky but he chose to repeat them during this time of suffering.
Spanky Dorise November 01, 2012 at 10:01 PM
Truth. but i dont see you telling Diogenes about the horrific times of suffering.
Rob Gianazza November 01, 2012 at 11:16 PM
@David, read the subject line. What did you expect, a bake sale? Get a life David and stop putting other people down.
Diogenes November 02, 2012 at 01:20 AM
"Where is the vision for what needs to be done to get the economy going again ? This is not what we expect from [a leader]....from a gentleman." Robin- awesome job bringing laser-like focus on the important issues facing our nation. Nice work.
Linda Taylor November 02, 2012 at 02:36 AM
Diogenes, Is it not important to bring "laser- like focus" to issues such as the character of a person we are entrusting our country too? What do you say about the events in Benghazi? Do you feel that was a "stellar" presidential decision? We may not agree with each others opinions but we can at least respect them!
Diogenes November 02, 2012 at 10:13 AM
Linda- I agree that Behghazi highlighted a very important character flaw in Romney. Most people found it dispicable that on the night of 9/11, before all of the facts were known, Romney issued a statement to try and score political points. You are correct that it was not a "stellar" presidential decision. I would also agree that it is distasteful that Romney has continued to politicize the deaths of these heros that were killed while serving our county. It seems that his attempt to mischaracterize Obamas response to this act of terrorism would and should have taken its last gasp when he was called out on his lack of knowledge of the facts; while on stage, in front of millions. Honest opinions based on intelectual honesty and logic are to be respected: again, we agree. It is difficult, however, to respect hypocrisy. I find a blog that attempts to point out the shallow nature of "The State of the Presidential Campaign" that decends into sleezy guilt by association politics and oxymoronic statements a reasonably strong example of hypocrisy. I applaud the collaboration of Obama and Christie in the wake of Sandy, to work together and truly serve our country. This is an example of sincerity, which is too infrequently illustrated in politics.
Linda Taylor November 02, 2012 at 10:25 AM
Diogenes-A character flaw in Romney?...seriously..you must only watch MSNBC... If the parties knew how to work together we wouldn't have the stalemate we have now in congress. Yes, it is good to see people working together in the face of tragedy. We should expect no less from ANY of our leaders. Whoever wins the election will either inherit a big mess, or continue to blame the administration before them. I am NOT better off than I was 4 years ago....
Andrew Turkenkopf November 02, 2012 at 02:46 PM
Wait? He's a town leader now?
Kathie Schilling November 02, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Inflammatory comments???? Egad, how does that earn it's own place on your website? I guess it fits in somewhere between your favorite pizza-dance school-favorite costume-what do you think about nonsense crap that has become the Brookfield Patch. I'm sorry, but this was actually a pretty good place for people to connect before it became all about the the place where the "right" opinions took priority. Clearly, the Patch decided some time ago to play in only one sandbox - did you think no one noticed? You want inflammatory - the raison d'etre (oh, how elitist to speak French!) of the Brookfield Patch is to be the small minded reflection of the smallest minds in town. Good luck with that! See ya when your readership hits nil.
Kathie Schilling November 02, 2012 at 09:23 PM
Aaron, we all thought you were better than this......
Spanky Dorise November 02, 2012 at 11:32 PM
who's we? i have had the pleasure of meeting Aaron multiple times and he is a really intelligent and fun guy to be around and in my opinion does a very good job as the editor of the Patch
Michael Gianfranceschi November 03, 2012 at 12:45 AM
Kathie, i would have to say that some of the most "inflamatory comments " actually come from you. If you find reading and posting on the patch so terrible perhaps you should find another hobby. you probably won't be missed... just sayin'
Steven DeVaux November 05, 2012 at 06:14 AM
Robin, Less than a day later and his wife said what?
