I’ve been out of the country for about a week. So I come back, and start digging through the news. And I come to this ad by Mitt Romney.
Romney is classing this election up by attacking Hillary Clinton over sex with his "internship" line. I want to be clear about something.
We will lose with this kind of behavior. We will get crushed with this kind of behavior. Attacking Bill on sex in the 90s didn’t work. He left office with twice President Bush’s approval rating.
Furthermore, as I have pointed out repeatedly, Hillary is a crook. She makes Bob Ney look like a choir boy. It is clear that she has been involved in profound campaign finance fraud related to Norman Hsu, etc. There was also the party that she accepted a $1m in-kind for several years ago. There is all the 90s era stuff with Bill.
But attacking her for sex is going to put us in the same place. Mitt Romney should be ashamed of himself, not that he’s capable of that. And not that he’s at any risk of winning the presidency anyways.
Matt Margolis is doing the right thing. Mitt Romney is not.
