    I'd like to see. Perhaps a relevant quote from the diary.

      citing Hitler in a positive light in comparison to FDR, may be considered lauding, as to praise Hitler because he did not snub Owens, as if that proves that this alone is what determines how the policies of Obama or FDR affects or affected blacks overall..

      Hope you understand what I said, but if not, it may not be my inarticulation, but your predisposition.

      •  So *not* snubbing Jesse Owens (0+ / 0-)

        becomes the measure for high praise. Gotcha.  :)  That does seem reminiscent of this place, I must admit.

          and then I was facetious.  If you want to make this into more than it was, that the diarist was commending Hitler's behavior compared to FDR's as a sole basis for a conclusion, have a blast.  I suggest that it was relatively clear what I meant and what I did not.

          Hope you understand what I said, but if not, it may not be my inarticulation, but your predisposition.
