5. Nasty Obama Campaign?

The Republicans wrote the book on Nasty Campaigns, it was a Republican majority SCOTUS which allowed super pacs who's only purpose is to collect money and smear the opponent.

It has been Romney who spoke about his accomplishment at Bain so much I thought he had a hyphenated last name, Bain-Romney.

Just, why is it because those accomplishments are being questioned it becomes a nasty politics?

So, let me see if I understand, nothing Romney says can be challenged or it is nasty politics, right?

Yet, through out the primaries with the help of his super pac Romney utterly destroyed each opponent as they emerged.

So, if I understand, Romney get to challenge anything said by his challenger, right?

Am I missing something?

Well as far as I am concerned Obama should run the nastiest campaign in history, if those are the rules. And, it would still be clean compared to any Republican campaign I can remember.
