    I got no beef with moderate Democrats and blue-dogs. I know a lot of them, and they're mostly just regular folks, salt of the Earth type people; none of them are apprised of "liberal" ideology, though, which is my real concern.
    The thing is that many of us centrists, moderates, whatever, to some extent still view ourselves under that liberal tradition, but we acknowledge that there is something no longer there that we like.

    Let's discuss intellectual dishonesty, character assassination, the twisting and distortion of dialog, and childish insults, shall we? Oh, and let's not forget this pot calling the kettle black theme you've got going...

    Perhaps if your criticisms we substance-based, we'd be less inclined to point out your childish hatred of opposing viewpoints.

    K-thx!!!

    Is any of that in any way similar to the nonsense the righties around here say about Obama?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Memoir by George W Bush to be published in NovemberThis thread is not about liberalism and the broadscale insults and derailment has gone far enough. Get it back on topic and more focused on that, minus the broad insults especially those directed specifically towards other posters, or thread bans are going to be handed out

    Re: Memoir by George W Bush to be published in November

    From what I read so far it breaks down like this....

    {Liberal} Bush was a dummy, dumb, dumbhead.....

    but don't say anything about Obama you aren't allowed.....{/Liberal}


    Breaks down to really good at dishing it out, but just can't take it.

    Actually other than 1984, j-mac's hit it on the head.



    Then again, when one starts a thread like this, not much should be expected to come of it.
