Hillary Clinton enlists help of Gabby Giffords for Conn. primary
That one stung the Clinton noise machine!
Clinton has everything around her scripted.
oh is that so? then who writes the secret script, do ya think...?
Hilarious that none of your claims in this article are sourced. And it's posted as an op ed.
I always thought an opinion/editorial was a matter of opinion. A link to Jesus Christ does not seem to be in order for that.
Could be that OP failed in not realizing that some of the people reading don't have a passing acquaintance with current events or a basic grasp of history, which might make it difficult for them to comprehend the opinions expressed.
Hillary is defending her Goldman Sachs speeches like they were state Secrets -- better, in fact
It's a fine op-ed. Personally, I prefer op-eds with at least a few links to sources, but they are not required by my standard except ones that demand more credibility than mere opinion. Most op-eds I read on the web these days, have links in them. But not all.
No. The OP is making claims about what are ostensibly factual events, but providing no evidence that those events occurred. An opinion without basis is....compostable.
Peony, don't trouble yourself too much about not providing links. The folks demanding them don't appear to read them anyway.
Sadly, many of these folks do not understand the value of compost, either.
I didn't ask for links. I asked for sources and evidence (locations etc.). Look at the op ed page in any credible newspaper, and you'll see that those are included.
And I fucking love compost, I have a worm bin in my garage. But, the stuff you compost is...well...trash.
I just think it's reasonable that when a supposed op ed writer makes the following claims, they provide some evidence that what she's claiming actually occurred. Otherwise, it just sounds like bullshit.
Those are either factually accurate, or they aren't. If they are factually accurate, providing evidence of that would go a long way towards making the op ed credible.
Separate names with a comma.
