The Nastiness of 2012

by Conrad Black

From my most recent NRO article, on the presidential campaign: “The spectacle we have now — of an incumbent presuming to run for reelection while going to preternatural extremes to avoid discussion of his record, and representing his opponent and his backers as a bunch of greedy crooks instead — is a degradation of the whole process. This indignity is aggravated by Romney’s inability to turn the tables and hold Obama accountable for his shortcomings, and to defend himself effectively from the assault on his career, even though he has a much more impressive CV than the incumbent.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
