    I know that the candidate has to approve the ad and that's included

    But it's nasty, dirty and it's a bit sad realy

    Tell me ideas, solutions, hopes, goals and plans , don't tell me me how bad the other side are and then ask for a vote as the least worst candidate

    Of course I don't have a vote here, just my 2c
    Actually, the candidate only has to approve his campaign ads. Those run by PACs (political action committees) are not necessarily approved by the candidate. LEgally the candidate has nothing to do with those ads, but in reality if they want them stop they would be. The best example is Obama's campaign claiming they have nothing to do with an ad that practially blames Romney for the death of a woman from cancer. SURE!

    Really?

    That's disappointing.


    There are probably a lot of places much better than that one...I've never been and have only ever heard about the Hoffbrauhaus...Are you going to hang out for a little of Oktoberfest? I've always wanted to go to Germany for that.

    Mitt has been accused of murder, cheating on taxes where he just proved he didn't, and not caring for cancer victims amongst other things like animal abuse - nothing to do with the issues like the lousy economy OBY made worse.

    OBY has to do this to keep Mitt from talking about jobs and the economy. He has no record to run on or discuss and thus this campaign.

    Europeans just don't understand American politics.
    It's the super PAC ads that are so sleazy and neither candidate (or party for that matter) is allowed to even communicate with them. They'll both get blamed for the dirty tactics but the pacs are doing the jobs for them... it's pretty pathetic.

    No. Mrs HR lived here for years and from what she tells me, it's been overrun by tourists, particularly Japanese and Russian tourists, and it's not what it once was.

    We are doing more of a Anthony Bourdain type trip -- do what the locals do, eat what the locals eat, etc. Today though is all about WW2 and cold war history in Berlin.
