Europe Has Always Been a Dirty Word in American Elections
Well, there are two fallacies in this article.
The first one is easy. Europe has always been a dirty word in American elections, and was used against John Kerry in 2004. The Republicans have always tried to exploit anything "worldly" about Democrats. I can remember the lines of attack that were tried on Bill Clinton, which ran the gamut from how he acted as a college student in Britain to any travel he might have done.
The second one assumes that there haven't been any "crazy" lines of attack in the Republican Primary. ALL of the lines of attack have been crazy because the Republicans are running their crazies and their lickspittles and their problem children.
The status quo wants Obama re-elected. Enough said.
