How 'bout we take a poll of everyone who didn't hear those comments coming from the Left and go from there?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.
Again, somethings just don't need supporting documentation. In cases such as this, demanding supporting docs is just being argumentative.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.

Not at all. It helps your credibility and validates your claims. Without it your assertion amounts to nothing.Again, somethings just don't need supporting documentation. In cases such as this, demanding supporting docs is just being argumentative.
In this particular case, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Yes?Not at all. It helps your credibility and validates your claims. Without it your assertion amounts to nothing.
But, worry not, Doc, 99.99% of the time, I never make any factual claim that I can't back up.

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.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.
Anymore hindsight bias to add?The reason most people cared so little about Clinton was because we all knew he'd cheat on Hilliary.
you being serious or trying to be funny?Who wouldn't?
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.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.

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.
