    is the Obama supporters

    watching the convention last night, became clear I am closer to Obama than McCain on most of the big issues, don't like the higher taxes, but also think it's the only way to reduce the deficit

    but the Obama supporters need to chill out, really can't stand the way they pounce on every little news nugget about Palin or McCain, they way they hypocritically go into a rage about troopergate, yet have lame explanations for Whitewater, Biden's Plagiarism, Obama's Rezko connection, and they're so humorless about everything

    some of the Mac supporters do the same on their side, but they have a lot more self-control

    Nicely done! I give this a 9 out of 10 for "concern" trolling.

    It takes a lot of balls to make a post like this, after living through over a decade of the republican base calling Bill Clinton a drug runner who murdered Vince Foster; John Kerry a coward who lied to get medals; and Barack Obama a secret muslim who really isn't an american citizen.

    On the other hand, after 15 years of smearing Clinton, Gore, Kerry, and Obama with the most vile and scurrilous smears imaginable, its heartening that in the last 72 hours, the GOP is "suddenly" concerned with civility in politics.

    It may appear to be as you say, right now...and i would agree with you that they are pouncing on every little itty bitty thing and have been nearing MADNESS in my opinion since Palin's announcment as vp....

    HOWEVER, your last point is not quite emphasized enough...

    I can remember going through periods on this board where it was the republicans going MAD, and posting one link after another on Obama, reizko, rev wright, not a usa citizen, Obama's a muslin, Michelle hates America, etc etc etc etc....it was pure MADNESS, just as what is going on right now with Palin, imho....

    I hate it....turns me off, no matter what side does it...i'd rather debate pertinent issues.

    Care

    Nice demonstration of how liberals attack without addressing the issue raised. I'm guessing, though, that this was not what y'all meant to do. :badgrin:

    so is this your way of "finally" coming to a decision to vote for McCain rather than Obama? :lol:

    Palin has been in the media for SIX DAYS! of course we're going to pick up on every new bit of information that is released, we know NOTHING about this woman for pity sake!

    Did you honestly think we'd just give her a free pass into November? REALLY?

    I wasn't around here during the primaries so I don't know how the Conservatives behaved whenever something new about Obama would come out but I have a DIFFICULT time believe that they just were like "oh well, I don't support him so this doesn't matter to me anyway"

    funny thing though, I don't care about the McCain supporters and their behavior because oddly enough THEY won't be the one's running this country so what they say is of no consequence to me after the election.

    yup

    and I agree with Obama on military reductions and abortion rights, part of why I'm leaning his direction, yet issues don't seem to matter to his base, just angry, empty rhetoric

    really can't support the old man though, even if Obama's supporters all behave like a bunch of undisciplined kids

    Yup heart warming indeed. The left are the biggest hypocrites in this country. Any lie will do, any smear is ok, any information acceptable, UNLESS it is used against them, then it is dirty politics.

    Much like how when Obama was up in the polls, the polls were great indicators and the best news ever, then when he was down, polls didn't mean a thing.

    Talk about bullshit, the last 8 years of BUSH is evil etc etc etc, is the biggest smear ever conducted and all with out one shred of evidence or facts. Ohh and lest not forget that according to libs and dems over half the country was and is stupid for voting for Bush in 2004. Or that they never actually lost any election they had them stolen.
