  •  If she didn't believe it were true (4+ / 0-)

    she wouldn't have written it.  What I am objecting to is the absolute and complete refusal, by Obama supporters and sometimes also by Hillary supporters, to give the other side the benefit of the doubt.  I talk to a lot of people all over the world and your negative characterization of what Alegre has said is something of the type I usually only hear somewhere on the blogosphere, and usually here at dKos.

      There are a number of reasons why someone would write something.  "Truth" is one of them.

      simply propaganda for Hillary.

      Apart from the incident with Powers, everything else is basically a Hillary press release.

      Saying that is hardly an attack.

      As to giving the other side the benefit of the doubt..you could not be more wrong. I have written here in the past that "we have two great candidates", and I was not a Obama supporter till relatively recently.

      But recent developments with Hillary have left me absolutely appalled at her tactics and her character.

      What I have seen on this diary tonight is intelligent and mild - especially compared to the Hillary supporters at DD.

        Obamaganda pieces on the MyDD rec list aren't propaganda?  So calling the diary a piece of shit and the diarist a paid liar is mild eh?  Not in my book.

        As for being appalled at Hillary's "character," that is certainly Obama propaganda.  She pointed out her experience advantage over Obama, and that of Senator McCain, which is more than fair, and all of a sudden she is supporting McCain?  And you think that Republicans haven't figured out for themselves that Obama has little real experience?  Right.....

          is MY OWN reaction to her techniques of politics.

          As to what she said about McCain...really now, you are being so disingenuous that it is not worth of response.

          From the Nation:

          Now, if she wanted to help ensure that a Democrat wins in November, Clinton could say: "Barack Obama is qualified to be commander-in-chief but I'm more qualified." That's a perfectly reasonable argument. Instead she's sowing doubts about a fellow Democrat while talking up the GOP nominee, a strategy that plays right into McCain's hands. When McCain says, in a general election, that Obama is not ready to be commander-in-chief, he'll only have to cite Clinton.

      when you KNOW you are being LIED to.

      I may be going out on a limb here, but, I THINK that's why one is not likely to look kindly upon those who are "pissing down our backs and telling us it's raining."

      Just sayin'...
