Do you think Obama should fight fire with fire?

Asked by SoapChef (2968points) October 6th, 2008

The McCain campaign is in high gear with the smear campaign that they themselves forewarned us about. There is plenty of ammunition for the Obama side to fire back with. Some say it would be a mistake to not jump in there. Do you have more respect for a politician who tries to distance themselves from this behavior?

No, I don’t think he should. I respect him a lot because he hasn’t..not that I know of anyway…

No, he looks better by staying away from that old game.

The best way to fight fire is with water not more fire. I think Obama is a little more than a huge ass bowl of hype and good spelling but he certainly is winning when the people he is up against are about 4 years from dead and sally six pack.

He shouldn’t, but he may have to. At the very least, he will have to firmly point out the lies and exaggerations as they come. Perhaps some of his supporters can do the actual character assasinations for him.
