And usually we have a great laugh at that politician's expense and he goes on to get re-elected anyway. I love a good Weiner joke, just as I like a good Larry Craig joke. I shed no tears over either of them getting what they got.Remember, Obama set himself up as being the most transparent. This is akin to the evangelist claiming how full of God and holy he is. The same argument is made of Republicans who claim family values who then get caught hiding the pickle with a mistress. The criticism is always, "Well, the Republicans always say they are the party of family values look at this guy having an out of marriage affair! What a joke! You know what, that's fair criticism.
I think it's kind of disingenuous when you're criticizing him for governing pretty much like the guy you voted for had for the previous 8 years.Yet when one sets themselves up as the most transparent and then is the direct opposite - we should ignore that?
Yes, but it's just trying to deflect attention back to the "dark side."It's a fair comparison however.
MSNBC tows the line for Democrats, just as Fox does for Republicans. But if it's fair here, then it's fair there.MSNBC tows the line for Obama especially between 5pm and 11pm ET. All their shows are geared towards pro Democrat and pro Obama. Fox is diametrically opposed to that view and take a critical anti-Democrat anti-Obama stance. My view is, one needs to be able to discern facts from supposition. All opinion shows take facts and then try to connect various other dots to create a narrative that their viewers want to hear. It doesn't mean Maddow cannot provide facts, nor that Hannity cannot provide facts. It's the conclusions they derive to support their narrative one must be wary of and depending on which side of the political fence one is on makes a difference.
Of course I see the comparisons and they are fair to make.
By voting the least worst candidate, you are still getting a very bad winner. As for that you helped re-elect Obama, I didn't help him at all, my vote didn't go to him. If the Republicans wanted my vote, they would have given me a better choice of candidates, one whom I could have supported. They didn't, so it is the Republican's fault they didn't get my vote. Besides Romney ran the most inept campaign I have seen since Bush the first back in 1992. Romney though he could win just because he wasn't Obama, sorry Charlie, it doesn't work that way.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
I don't understand your second statement. Did you click the link from December 12th I linked? Christie himself made it clear he wanted Cuomo to call off the dogs. It's baffling why he would do that, will you at least admit that?
