Lets use this thread as an example. I started this thread as a response to the McCain begs off thread. You guys (liberals) have that thread to trash McCain on, yet here I am reading attack after attack on Mcacin on this thread instead. I understand your guys anger about Obama failing to act like a leader and wanting to lash out about it, but there is a discussion elsewhere for that. Yet, because you know the few conservatives will probably come here, to a discussion with a less hostile title, you guys continue filling it with your propaganda.
Where exactly are the tolerant liberals capable of duscussion? They must be getting drowned out by the rabble because I don't see em. I just see a bunch of angry people mad about their candidates failure to respond to a crisis and angry that their opponent did.
The post was titled "Mccain shows his true character and leadership". That is fine, if there are actual events or actions that indicate either strong character or admirable leadership qualities.....and if these actions or events reveal to the American voter that these are in fact both consistent and true of McCain.
What has been revealed however, is that his true "character and leadership" can be called into question by the very actions he chose to take in the past few days.
He suspended his campaign to be a pylon in Washington, as though the self proclaimed economic dunce would be of any assistance in a room full of actual economists.
He claimed the crisis was the
most important thing, more important than the campaign, but failed to read the wee 3 page report/proposal, as though his limited knowledge and understanding of the economy would be adequate.
He continued to blame earmarks for the current economic crisis, completely ignoring the fundamental problems that made the entire market collapse--it wasn't earmarks.
Insisted of cancelling the debates in favor of "dealing with" the financial crisis, as though being President means you can put certain things on "time out" and get to them when it's convenient.
Yeah, Mcg, you'll see some liberals get up in your grill about McCain's character and leadership over this. It's silly to continue to pretending that transparent political posturing is a good substitute for sound logic and reasoned action.
Unfortunately, your post and your assumption that McCain is acting nobly is dishonest and there are like, 6 or 7 pages callin you on that bullshit.
It would have been different if there was some indication that McCain really cared, but the facts dont' line up that way.
