Fowler discusses bullying campaign strategies

In the recent weeks of campaigning, President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have resorted to immature and bullying tactics as they race to the polls in November.

Government professor Linda Fowler said she believes Obama and Romney are taking cues from their childhoods.

“It really does look like the playground at junior high doesn’t it?” Fowler said in an interview with The Boston Globe…. Read more »

Daily Beast spotlights Perry’s Beta talk

 

 

The Daily Beast ques­tioned Rick Perry’s choice of post-de­bate venue on Tues­day — the can­di­date spoke at Beta after ver­bal spar­ring at the Hop — and de­scribed Beta’s his­tory of haz­ing and racist com­men­tary in an ar­ti­cle pub­lished last night. Perry’s de­ci­sion to speak at a frat with a con­ser­v­a­tive South­ern rep­u­ta­tion isn’t sur­pris­ing, ar­ti­cle au­thor Andy Ross con­cludes, but Beta’s re­cent re­turn to cam­pus after a ban for ques­tion­able in­sti­tu­tional be­hav­ior does make it a risky choice as a venue for build­ing broad po­lit­i­cal sup­port.

Perry’s son offered insight at SAE

Dur­ing Tues­day’s de­bate frenzy, the cam­paign of Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas — one of the front-run­ners for the 2012 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion’s re­pub­li­can ticket — de­cided to do a lit­tle frat hop­ping to pro­mote the gov­er­nor. While he didn’t com­plete a cir­cuit dur­ing his stay at Dart­mouth, Perry’s 28-year-old son Grif­fin did make a pit stop at Sigma Alpha Ep­silon fra­ter­nity on Tues­day af­ter­noon at a ca­sual mixer to dis­cuss pol­i­tics and his fa­ther’s cam­paign. “It’s al­ways nice to see girls at a frat house dur­ing the day,” Grif­fin quipped dur­ing his in­tro­duc­tion. The Texan gov­er­nor’s son de­liv­ered a brief pre­sen­ta­tion very catered to his col­lege au­di­ence, prais­ing the stu­dents in at­ten­dance for their in­volve­ment in the po­lit­i­cal process. “That means you’re think­ing about your fu­ture,” he said. Re­gard­ing his fa­ther’s cam­paign plat­form, Grif­fin Perry said his fa­ther is not a be­liever in gov­ern­ment-cre­ated jobs, but that en­tre­pre­neurs can help cre­ate jobs as a so­lu­tion to the na­tional issue of un­em­ploy­ment. He added, how­ever, he could not “go into the full de­tail today.” In re­sponse to a stu­dent’s ques­tion about the spe­cific is­sues with which Perry’s com­pe­ti­tion must con­tend dur­ing the de­bate, Grif­fin Perry sug­gested that for­mer Gov. Mitt Rom­ney, R-Mass.,… Read more »

Ron Paul raises brows at debate

The New York Times

We’re not sure what shocked him, but can­di­date Ron Paul was spot­ted with his brows un­usu­ally askew dur­ing Tues­day’s de­bate. As The New York Times noted, a false brow, per­haps in­cor­rectly glued, seemed so slip a bit on the can­di­date’s face as the de­bate wore on. Moral of the story: Learn from Mr. Paul and check that your brows are se­curely at­tached be­fore leav­ing for class.

The Oct. 11 Re­pub­li­can pres­i­den­tial de­bate took over cam­pus, with stu­dents, pro­fes­sors and com­mu­nity mem­bers carous­ing with can­di­dates, politi­cos and jour­nal­ists. From protests on the Green to can­di­date-fre­quented watch par­ties, The Dart­mouth was there to doc­u­ment.
