Now I know that his has been done by both sides of the aisle and I'm not going to single anyone or any party out. But aren't you all TIRED of it? It seems that I can't get past a single day without reading some thread or other that blames X on a party and then someone else comes along and says "But but but!" (or some other verbiage but ends up being and meaning the same dang thing).
I mean come on! Of COURSE the other side has done the same dang thing. We all know this! But just because the other side did it to doesn't make it right or acceptable for "your" side to do the same thing. By saying "but but but!" all that people are doing is attempting to deflect from the wrong doing of "their side". Or it is being done just to argue for the sake of arguing (stupid and annoying imo). I know I know, its claimed that its done in order to try and point out hypocrisy. But COME ON! We all know better. We know that "our" side has done it also. Just as we know "their" side did it also.
In essence, can't we just start advancing the conversations past this junk?
