When potential candidates start their campaign by belittling their opponents even in the same party, we can pretty much assume this is the old political strategy to try and win. It is not how good I will be for your country but how bad my opponent will be.
As we all know comparisons can be odious, but as long as you can point to your opponents short comings, why try to establish any creditabilty for your positions on important and vital issues.
Every political campaign has used these tactics to try and destroy the opposition and unfortunately it has proven to work.Every word every action any candiadte has spoke or done is magnified and editited for convinience in disparaging the opposition.If the person being maligned does not answer due to the absurdity of the acuusation they are once again vilified. If they do choose to to responds they are almost forced to use similar tactics to put the spot light on their opponents and so the wheel keeps spinning until where it stops nobody knows and hopefully voters can establish their own sensible criterior for who will serve them best
