Behind the Headlines Video
One thing that becomes very apparent during an election year -- especially a presidential election year -- is the wide differences in opinions.
I'm a conservative. I believe in smaller, less intrusive government. Fiscal responsibility, lower taxation, reduced spending. I believe in individual freedom and liberty. I cherish the Constitution. [Watch this video regarding the steep challenges we face and that deeply worry all of us who are conservative.]
Others differ. They want bigger government. Equal outcomes even when there is unequal effort. They want bureaucrats to make decisions for them.
While I don't agree with their views I staunchly defend their right to say them.
And then there are the crazies who are so far out of the mainstream they haven't a clue. I'm referring to MoveOn.org as an example. I support their First Amendment rights even when what they say is reprehensible.
In 2004, it was their absolutely disgusting commercial comparing George Bush to Adolf Hitler.

In 2012, it's their granny ad. The one in which a 97-year old women drops the F-bomb. Another elderly woman graphically threatens to punch a man in the groin.
It's neither cute nor funny. It's tasteless. And I can't imagine it influencing a single undecided voter.
