I didn't attack you. I know this may confuse you, but just bolding certain parts of my post doesn't mean the rest of it doesn't actually exist.
My statement was clear. I asked for you to either show PROOF that its only NOW that they criticize Obama that Hautey finds them ignorant but he DIDN'T find them ignorant when they did it to Bush....OR....admit that you're basing it off of nothing but an ASSUMPTION, which, if that is the case, then you shouldn't have an issue with someone also making the ASSUMPTION that you would complain about and insult these kids if the situation was reversed as well.
If you have proof that Hautey has in the past said that kids weren't ignorant when they questioned Bush's economic policy, then all is fine. Please present it. A link? A quote? Something?
If not, you admit to just doing it off nothing but an assumption...which is fine, you're free to make assumptions. Everyone is. I just find it rather hypocritical of you to make such an assumption when the exact opposite of said assumption could apply to you. EVERYTHING you could point at to make the assumption that Hautey would've agreed with these kids if it was Bush would have some kind of equal by yourself that could point at you criticizing them for doing it.
This has nothing to do with me "covering" for Hautey or "Carrying his water". I actually agree with your assumption, I don't think Hautey would've came out criticizing the kids if it was Bush but more likely would've said how even inexperienced high school kids can see through Bush's BS. I'm not arguing about your assumption.
I'm saying people in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks. Criticizing another poster based on nothing but an assumption of how they WOULD'VE acted, when its a very good assumption YOU would've acted akin to how they are now if the situation was reversed, is a ****ty argument.
Can I be hypocritical at times? Yes, definitely. Everyone is. No human is not hypocritical. That doesn't mean its okay, it doesn't mean it can't be pointed out in debate, it doesn't mean it can't be highlighted when others do it. And I, unlike you, actually attempt to be intellectually honest on my comments and points about people and topics when I debate to try and AVOID being hypocritical.
I know this may be realllllllly difficult for you to understand, so please track with me. People who disagree with part of your premise, doesn't mean they support the other person. People who think you're making a ****ty debate point doesn't mean they agree with the other persons debate point. People pointing out that your complaining about something based on assumption when the same could be applied to you is hypocritical and worthless does not necessarily mean they disagree with that assumption. And people who are not hyperpartisan, talking point spewing, rabid conservatives that (god forbid it) the almighty Truth Detector doesn't consider to be a "real conservative" doesn't make them "Moderate".
Now, do you see my point? Instead of addressing Hautey's point, you decided to verge into a a baseless hypocritical assumption that doesn't in any way negate or deflect his point and you have no basis, at all, to get on a soap box against him for it.
But surprise surprise, this one's partially my fault. I Fell for your ****ty ass bait when you decided to verge away from the conversation to instead just make a sarcastic little jape against Hautey to try to distract things from the actual topic. My fault, please, go back to your mindless prattling on, please.
