    Re: Is This Add Dishonest or Does It Cross The Line.

    What is both revealing and sadly pathetic about this thread is the progression - (or would that be the opposite?) of partisan opinion from the right as it picks up steam. Right off the bat some honest conservatives condemned the ad as it should be condemned. Then the GOP excuse makers started their work on the net and in the right wing media and suddenly those lame excuses why Romney was not so bad came pouring into this thread like a bad case of the runs after too many cheap burritos.

    And that will continue unabated for 12 months.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Maggie's got a lot of common sense and tries to be fair...even though she's pretty darned conservative in most of her positions. But when I see fellow conservatives defying logic as some have done on this thread, they lose all credibility with me -- and with a whole lot of other posters on this forum. I don't know why they can't see that.

    You are one of the last people on this forum who should be using the words "revealing," "sadly pathetic," and "partisan opinion" in the same sentence.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You know exactly why, as does anybody who has seen you in action for any length of time. If you want to play dumb, though, feel free.

    No. I really want to know this. You doing a drive by attack on me and then racing off as I come to the door does not cut it. Lets see what you got....... if you got anything more than just vitriol.

    I'm just pointing out that you're the pot calling the kettle black, which is pretty much common knowledge around these parts.

    All you are doing is repeating the same personal attacks without any proof of your charges. Come on Dan - man up here. What do you got on me? Man up and prove it.
