    You do if some one calls you on your claim. One thing I have gotten good at on this board is making it clear when I am offering an opinion, and when I am making claims, and learning how to find and give sources for my claims.

    BS. You stated it as if it were fact. When asked for proof you couldn't provide it which means that it is your opinion.
    How 'bout we take a poll of everyone who didn't hear those comments coming from the Left and go from there?

    Again, somethings just don't need supporting documentation. In cases such as this, demanding supporting docs is just being argumentative.

    A poll doesn't amount to squat without proof. Try again.

    Not at all. It helps your credibility and validates your claims. Without it your assertion amounts to nothing.

    In this particular case, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Yes?

    But, worry not, Doc, 99.99% of the time, I never make any factual claim that I can't back up.

    Are you talking about when Rush Lardball said he hoped Obama would fail?

    I think if anyone was hyperboling it was when Bush was in office, any criticism was portrayed as "hating America" by the rightards.

    you can choose not to play the poltical games. Perhaps you'll win. More likely, you'll lose.

    Lots of people do the same. I don't care if they cheat or not, but there is no question you harm yourself and your party FAR more when you preach about your lofty moral standing and then get caught with your dick in the mouth of someone who is not your spouse.
    in this case it wouldn't of mattered. Adultery is often politically devestating. That's why politicans have accused others of it for years. Even jefferson (or one of the early presidents). It doesn't even have to be true to have an effect.

    The reason most people cared so little about Clinton was because we all knew he'd cheat on Hilliary.
    Anymore hindsight bias to add?

    Who wouldn't?
    you being serious or trying to be funny?

    People just have a worse reaction when you preach A and then do the opposite. Which seems to be the GOP soup du jour lately.
    hypocrisy may exacerbate the error. But hypocrisy isn't what ended his career. Adultery is. Just like claiming atheism or homosexuality would for most other politicans. Being found a hypocrite has a negligable effect.

    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Apparently this is not one of those times, and if you want your claim to be taken seriously, you need to be able to back them up. Pretty much any one who has been here any time has gotten used to it. Those who do not back up their claims are not taken seriously.

    Only interested in clarity.
    Both. By the way, trying to pass off what you do by pointing to some one else is a weak argument.
