    But that would be asking too much from US Conservative, don't you think?
    And why in the world would you ever want to be fair with someone who is never fair to you, let alone the truth ?
    Technically, I think you're supposed to use the title of the article. It's in the rules posted above.

    II - All Opening Post threads posted in *BN* must have:

    • Static link to an article from a bona-fide news organization.
    • Dateline within the past 48 hours.
    • Exact same title as the cited article.
    • Quoted short excerpts from the article.
    • Your own unique content to spur discussion.
    Fair is fair, regardless of who posted it.

    The OP did not, however, have any "unique content to spur discussion." So there's that.

    Seriously, when the Obama derangement is this deep so as to post crap like this, all you can do is point and laugh at the OP.

    Yet you found it okay to slam the source of the headline.
    Go ahead and play your own games with US Conservative then--I'll bow out.

    There's nothing in the rules against slamming the source. I'm not having a go at ya, just telling it like it is.

    There's plenty of things wrong with the original post and the source (it's crap!). The thread title is the least of our worries.

    He appeased him... by saying he was sorry he spoke for so long? You really are grasping at straws. Remember when you claimed Obama had changed the way deportation numbers were counted? You got caught making up a lie, then never returned to the thread. I have a suspicion you'll do the same here. Don't try and break the record for most failed threads in a year as of yet.

    It is nice of you to be fair but...

    US Conservative has shown himself to be a non-thinker. He was unable to read the article and discern for himself that the headline was not reflective of reality. In addition he assumed that most other people, like him, read the headlines, knowing that nothing can be learned from the actual reporting of the facts.

    I don't mind that some people generlly support positions to the right of me, nor that they support positions to the left of me. I just wish they would use a modicum of intelligence to support their position.
