You missed the central point the poster was trying to make.
The guy ended up poorly, once the journalism got balanced.
Otherwise you will be digging yourself in a hole if you want to explain why the guy who is good, ended up poorly, without outside influence like journalism. You have the choice to blame journalism unless you wanna accept that the guy is not good and that is why he closed it on a whimper.
It's not a question of who is suffering the most (that is a victim mentality which you were crying against 2 posts above surprisingly), it's a question of rejecting any "ism" flat out in an equal manner.
No one is singling out just one as determinate, they are just singling out one determinate. There is a difference in those two scenarios. And if that one determinate (out of many) is an unprogressive one, then you are being blinded by an immoral one.
Agreed. I should have refrained myself but everyime someone brings up the past in a dishonest way or disrespects Hillary, I get tempted to respond. But you are right, we need to focus our energy on positive things and stop this internal bickering.
Believe me you dont have to concentrate on anyone except you (dont take it in a bad way and I will explain below).
I have friends who are Obama supporters. I am a Clinton supporter so I have friends who like/respect Clintons a lot. Most of the Clinton supporters are slowly working towards the idea of voting for Obama for the sake of our ideals, our party, our issues, etc even though it hurts at times to think about it. Some are even thinking of getting involved in the GE campaign for Obama. And then there comes some rude or insensitive or intellectually dishonest Obama supporters who say something disrespectful and people are pushed 2 steps back. And these are not McCain trolls on a website, these are people who meet in real life.
So when I said concentrate on you, I meant we need to be honest, own up the shit which happened in campaign, not downplay or overplay anything, and just show respect to all Democrats. The Clinton supporters will come along eventually, just watch your conduct because you can make that transition easier or difficult based on how you come across to them.
"The evidence" - That's the bullshit which will persist with some individuals here.
All of us dont sit on web to collect evidence and keep it ready for blog warfare. We believe intellectually honest individuals do remember the role each side played.
If you are really honestly interested in an evidence, go thru Obama's ads on Hillary before and after Iowa. It is an ad approved by Obama. If I say that you will do anything or say anything to get elected (implying that you dont have any morals and you are a liar), will you cherish such character assasination?
