    Sure I've read multiple sources that mention those personality attributes. He's had a tough time building relationships.

    At the same time...the right is synonymous with vitriol and anger by my generation and younger. Republican internal polling even shows it. Stories like this just feed that perception.

    Meeting like that, I am pretty indifferent either way. Not what I would say, but in that setting, no big deal even if it is true.

    That is a first--the apologist have to betray Caesar because Caesar has given them so little to work with these days and they need something to pass the time in the two hours it takes them just to get their name sent to the Obamacare website, let alone their address.


    Yeah they do.....its about vilifying the Repubs and keeping the media off the failings of Obamacare and his failed Foreign policy. We also have Greyson comparing the Tea Party to the KKK. Anything to stop Obama and his down-trending numbers.

    Funny, I'm conservative, and I view the left as vitriolic and angry towards those who don't agree. Try watching debates on TV sometime or just the talking heads when you have a conservative and a liberal discussing an issue. Invariably, you'll find that the liberal turns the discussion personal far more often. Even when making a good point, the liberal does it in a very unappealling way.

    When all else is failing just lie - and rely on the partisans to cheer the lie as if true.

    See how easy that was? And my post is actually closer to accurate.

    Honestly, I haven't noticed the right's talking heads being any better. I tend to agree with them more, but I haven't really noticed them actually debating in a more appealing way with less hyperbole and personal attacks. But I haven't actually counted, and I tend to think the worst of the talking heads of all political persuasions so you could be right.
