I don't know about you but I consider it to be a good thing if the most powerful person in the country is consistant.
    So like I said, you just admitted that you would blast Obama for bailing out Borders, but here you are in this thread blasting Obama for not bailing out Borders. Your earlier opinion was that he should have bailed them out to save jobs, yet you admit that you'd be demonizing him if he did just that. You're attempting to rationalize this by adding "well, he should at least be consistent" and going on to say that consistency is a good quality, yet if he was consistent here, then he'd still meet with your disapproval on this issue.

    That makes no sense, and you've offered nothing to refute my claim about your ultrapartisan post.

    No offense, but I don't know you or your posting history. While you've obviously been here a while and contributed many forum posts, I have no idea of your political lean outside of this thread. I addressed your post as ultrapartisan, because that's exactly what it is. I did not address you personally as ultrapartisan.

    Expecting consistancy is not ultrapartisan. I may disagree with his assessment also, but saying the president should be consistant is a view everyone should hold.

    Why would I pay full price for a book that I can get for 3.50 on Amazon.com? (+3.99 shipping)

    It's the free market.

    I liked Borders too.

    Almost forgot why I clicked on the link. Went to Borders today. No real sale. They had a sign up that said they would be open a few more weeks. Bought the daughter 4 books.

    Expecting consistency is not why his post is ultrapartisan.

    That's good, but again, not why his post is ultrapartisan.

    Sad. They were my favorite bookstore. I guess now I'm stuck with Barnes & Nobles...
