Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right use of strength - Henry Ward Beecher
Baby sister, I was born game and I intend to go out that way - Rooster Cogburn
An SUV with darkened windows, and as I have said before, if he was working he may not have known he arrived at his office until told to get out. Hell for all anyone knows he was catching 40 winks.
You ASS-U-Me waaaaay too much in this.
That's all I did you know. My comments in the thread were apolitical. It was reported that a politician was touting traffic safety and then didn't seem to feel that he was subject to those regulations or ideas. I did criticize him for that. So, instead of making this about me, or my rights of criticism, how about telling me why I'm wrong and why he should not be subject to criticism. I'm amenable to explanation - if I'm wrong to do this and you make a good case why, I'll retract my statements. That's the "debate" part of this.
FWIW, I also criticized his predecessor, albeit for other reasons. That is what we do here. I hope you're not defending him because he belongs to a party that you support. I'm an equal opportunity politician-basher.
IMHO, this was hypocritical, not catastrophic. He's not a paragon of evil. But he set a poor example on a topic he seems to be promoting. I'm not calling for the death penalty, just recognition of a false face.
If he wasn't driving the gotcha report is entirely lies. Had he been just another citizen and been pulled over on every one of those offenses (not likely of course for any citizen), absolutely nothing would have happenned to the passenger's license. Now, for comparison they should have followed a cabbie and a town car around for the day.
