Hearn: Negativism Lost, Too

On his Facebook wall, Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hearn posts:

Whether it is Reagan's “shining city on a hill” or Obama's “hope and change” people respond to a positive message. And people don't care about what you say and the image you try to present in life and in politics (as with Nixon years ago) as much as they care about what you do. Character, integrity, and how you treat people matters. There is plenty of negativity and pain in this life that we all encounter as part of the human condition. We don't need or want that attitude in our lives and in our elected officials. We want to feel hopeful about the future and we want people in government who can get along with others and who are people of good character who are working to bring about positive change. We do not want people in positions of authority who attack and divide people and appear to be angry and divisive. Full comment here.

Question: Can we declare the unrelenting negativism of the CAVErs to be another loser in the Tuesday election?
