I don't agree. Romney's choice of Ryan was the best we get from the political process. And saying that Romney is as bad as Obama is like saying a jay-walker is as bad as Bill Ayers.

You shouldn't insult Hitler by comparing him to Obama.

You got it exactly right. Making a moral equivalancy between bho and Romney is like comparing hitler to Ronald Reagan.

A version of this column appeared originally in THE DAILY BEAST.

Both presidential candidates describe this election as the most important choice in a generation and insist that the outcome will fatefully shape the direction of government and society.

But voters can’t make a meaningful decision when the discussion during the last month of the campaign (and, undoubtedly, much of the televised debate on Wednesday night) will be based on shameless, embarrassing lies.

Those lies flow most egregiously (but not exclusively) from the President of the United States.

Every day Barack Obama frames the electoral decision as a stark choice...
