Easily swayed voters on both sides

I found Rod Keck’s recent letter to the editor (“Have care at the ballot box,” April 13) interesting. According to his assessment, President Barack Obama’s election happened because tricky salesmen duped voters. And if we had just been “more thoughtful and careful,” we never would have done such a dumb thing.

I believe that people can be “thoughtful and careful” and still come to different conclusions about who is the best candidate. And while there probably is a segment of the electorate who is easily swayed by slick advertising, I think that segment is pretty evenly split between the political parties.

    In the old Soviet Union, people who disagreed weren't considered traitors so much as insane. That's Rod's shtick too.

    Where did you get that baloney, rlw895? Insane? Tell that to the millions, repeat MILLIONS of dissenters in the Soviet Union who were murdered by Stalin's henchmen.

    Obama won his second term because of all the give a way’s and he promised the Latino voter time and time again he was going to make them legal citizens when he does not have a chance in hell of doing that along with the Republicans are trying to run down the middle when it has been shown over and over the republican’s do better when the run on the right and stay on the right. The libertarians and the democrats do have a lot in common. Let’s see in November
