When a politician has to use a cemetery background for an advertisement to make a point, that is something that should WAKE UP people. What ever point he was trying to make, only shows his desperation in creating sensationalism or dramatics to make his point. A cemetery is a sacred place and should not be used in any political campaign. There is a reason why cemeteries are considered private. There is no reason to use this in any political arena. Respecting the lives of people who have died for their country is a personal and private area of respect. Change places with the people who have died and then ask your self if you would want your tombstone represented in the background of a political arena.
