Issues or Non-Issues?
Candidates bring up a variety of topics during the campaign. It is often difficult to tell what the meaning of some of these topics:
· Real issues?
· Minor issues?
· Ways of examining character of the candidates?
· Revealing a candidate’s values?
· Clever sound bites?
· Distractions from the real issues?
With each of those 6, do the following:
· Who has brought this up- critics of Obama or critics of Romney?
· Explain why critics feel this is significant?
· Why do you feel this item is either significant or insignificant?
· Birth Certificate
· Bain Capital
· $716 million
· Tax Returns
· Jeremiah Wright
· No Afghanistan in Speech
· Work component in welfare
· “You didn’t build it yourself”
· Death of Cancer Victim
