Given the amount of money,superPACs invest in negative campaigning, is the message true? Or is the message skewed to fill a finacial gain for a limited wealthy few? Is the message really to help the middle and lower class? And to eliminate unfair attacks, I'm referring to both Democrat and Republican PACS.
Move On did a rotten add on Scott Brown....showing an add with and arm alleging to be his throwing trash out his truck window....an obvious attempt to smear him. And of course, with the requisite scary music.
All they have to do with him is say the truth: He co-wrote the Blunt Amendment, and voted against every attempt at financial regulation. No smear necessary.
However, Move On are kitty-cats compared to these guys:
WASHINGTON — "A group of high-profile Republican strategists is working with a conservative billionaire on a proposal to mount one of the most provocative campaigns of the “super PAC” era and attack President Obama in ways that Republicans have so far shied away from.
Timed to upend the Democratic National Convention in September, the plan would “do exactly what John McCain would not let us do,” the strategists wrote."

Presidential, senate, congressional, elections (especially) should be funded by tax dollars. Do away with super PACs and all the BS that goes along with it. A candidate would be given a certain sum and it's up to them to spend it wisely. We all know that when companies pour huge amounts of money into a candidate and that candidate wins, well you get the idea. Candidates should be elected, not bought. Just a thought.
