Shark finds candidates as fool's gold

My mother always said, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Apparently, Joe Biden’s mother did not teach him manners to incorporate in the Presidential election. At his age, you would think that Biden would learn when to keep his mouth shut.

After Biden’s advertisement poked fun at John McCain’s computer illiteracy, Biden received some negative attention of his own.

The author of the article presents how negative campaigning is often used in the election, though the candidates claim they have no idea what is being said. Instead of focusing on only negative republican advertisements, the author provides examples of negative democratic advertisements as well.

Additionally, the author sheds light how the public is picking up on the negative advertising when the candidates should be focusing on issues that Americans. People are beginning to notice the negative campaigns rather than events that matter. One of the author’s sources mentioned to Biden that he knows about the false advertising because he “approves” each media message. Apparently, Biden says he does not know that the negative messages were publicized. Good job to the author for pointing out this piece of information to the public. The author makes me think this: Can I really trust the candidates?
