your being ridiculous! The range of issues regarding the public's ability to assess or rely upon the presumption of integrity of those seeking office are numerous,complex and varied. They are also most certainly not of primary or even direct relevance to the issues raised by this article, which are the potential responses to a president who may be percieved as an apostate, and the integrity of the man in question.

As for Roosevelt! ? seriously what are you talking about, Bombing the camps may have saved Jews, it may have led to the destruction of the allied airforce over poland, it may have drawn resources away from the war effort, it may have freed, jews who became partisans, it may have led hitler to throw the camp troops to the front line and finish the jews later, yaddah yaddah etc etc. Your comment with regard to the subject at hand doesnt deserve a reasoned response, the only relevence it has here is to distract from an issue I presume you dont percieve as favouring your own political preferences.

I also presume that in ohio no one was wringing there hands feverishly wondering 'how should the war time bombing policy of the roosevelt administration affect my voting choice, who's my enemy I need him close for a decision like this?'
