Citizen Editorial: Campaigning or Bullying?

Reports of missing signs, false accusations, dredging up past actions that have no relevance to the campaign, and name calling in our political campaigns smacks of the classic definitions of bullying; "A person who hurts or brow beats those who are weaker". Why would any of our political candidates behave in those tactics or that manner? Are they unable to describe their own accomplishments and their own good behavior to brag about? How about a candidate that can stand behind their own positive actions and good deeds? And can/will articulate the progressive good actions they have and will take to improve their government, community and place in life? ... Just saying, look in the mirror, that's not a beauty mark!
