Opposition campaigning…I guess that’s a good term for it.

I hate this campaign. Both parties are not talking about themselves but talking about the other guy. Barber is a much worst offender of this, but Kelly is doing this much more than I would like to see him doing it.

If Jesse Kelly is reading this, I’d like to offer him the following advice…Mr. Kelly, you’re the better candidate. That’s been made abundantly clear. You’re so much of a threat to Barber that he’s resorted to blatant lying and smearing because he knows he has no credentials of his own to stand on. People smart enough to see Barber for what he is can see it without it being pointed out. People too stupid to see Barber for what he is are beyond help and a lost cause. So, just focus your campaign on you. As far as I’m concerned, the more Barber speaks the more he helps your campaign.
