    So what? Why are you excusing your side, because of what you percieve of the other?


    It's an intellectually weak and pathetic, but typical argument from you.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    LOL I aint excusing anyone, just pointing out your sides hypocrisy on the issue. What is intellectually weak and pathetic is your sides sudden "outrage" over massive debt and other issues...

    Again, where were they when Bush took the debt from 5.6 trillion to almost 9 trillion in 2007 and almost 10 trillion before he left office... where were the 10s of thousands protesting this in Washington?...

People sat through Bush, some tried to defend, and they see Obama now continuing where Bush left off and I think a good number finally got frustrated. Don't know what took them so damned long. And you're starting to see that frustration now. About damned time, this thing needs to boil. The People must make their dissatisfaction with the government well known.
    Exactly.. well some what.. The difference is not frustration, but the fact that it is not one of their own in the position of power doing it.. hence the hypocrisy. If they were true "conservatives" then they would have been screaming bloody murder during the Bush years with his ranking up of massive debts, but guess what... not a peep, and in fact there was defence of his policies.

    Glad to see you -completely- missed the point.
    Question is -- was it on purpose?

    I don't see the point in taking this topic off in a different direction. The agenda of the MMM was even different.

    Just wondering if the hammer of criticism you swung here goes in both directions, or just one.

    Looks like just one.

    See, that right there, that would be another logic failure. The one implies nothing about the second.

    You're right! Wouldn't it be best if we left it up to health insurance companies to decide the faith of the poor without health care. He is SOOOOO out of touch!
    and so it goes...
