  •  About the President challenging us to (7+ / 0-)

    pressure him from the Left: this is something he's done, multiple times, in public speeches, it's documented. So the next time someone gets their pecs in a twist saying "Why are all you 'Obama sux' folks raggin' on the POTUS?", it's good to remind them that it is EXACTLY what the President told the Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party to do. Though sometimes, I think he's just invited that to keep us busy and out of his way, but still...

    •  this is why I try not to argue about most of this (5+ / 0-)

      stuff anymore.  plus it usually comes down to a matter of interpretation of actions or motives, and I'm definitely not interested in that last.

      but have you noticed a ton of comments recently like "where are the defenders ha ha?"  I have.  several times I've canceled sharp retorts to comments like that, as I don't want to take the bait.  it's not that my views have changed, it's not that I don't have reasoning behind my views, it's not that I'm scared, etc.

      it's that we've done it all to death.  same folks saying the same things for years.

      anyway. I'd appreciate more "suxers" calling each other out on that baiting stuff, commonmass.  maybe you already have, I dunno.  I'm asking you do, if you see it (though I never really considered you a "suxer" you seemed to self identify above)

      on a related, suprising note, I see kovie downthread wrote a comment that I could have written word for word.  wonders never cease lol.

      This comment is dedicated to my mellow Adept2U and his Uncle Marcus
