It seems like every time a Democratic scandal or lie is being discussed Obama supporters will invariably rationalize or dismiss it by citing what they perceive to be an analogous instance of Republican dishonesty or malfeasance.
So, my question is this: why does it matter what the Republicans did? Does their dishonesty or malfeasance justify the dishonesty or malfeasance of Obama, his administration, or the Democratic Party? If a wrong has been committed shouldn't it be rectified regardless of what has happened in the past?
To be honest, you people are starting to scare me. Why are you so reticent to scrutinize or criticize Obama and, to a lesser extent, the Democrats? I understand there will be non-issues which are blown out of proportion by partisans but there have been legitimate concerns and grievances regarding his conduct on the campaign trail and in the White House and I've yet to see any significant scrutiny coming from the left.
Partisans are ruining this country and I'm getting awfully sick and tired of their nonsense - Republicans included - but, for now, the left is on the hot-seat because their man is in office and I believe it's time you faced up to the un-face-up-to-able (Simpsons reference, sorry); that perhaps you ARE a partisan and that perhaps you HAVE been hypocritical despite your insistence to the contrary. Take a long, hard look at yourselves...
