  •  I didn't say dKos as a whole. (0+ / 0-)

    I said Obama supporters at dKos.  DKos as a whole would be utterly horrified.

    The two things Teabaggers hate most are: being called racists; and black people.

      majority of posters on DKos are anti-Obama?  If that's the case, I guess I comprehend your point of view.  I don't have any statistics for either side of that argument.
      We can agree to disagree.  I support the President.  I also support OWS.  I don't find that to be contradictory.
      President Obama does need to choose a side, and quickly.  There hasn't been violence like this in decades - and it all came from the side of authority figures, and their bosses.

        a little self-contradictory?

        Sadly, Obama chose his side in January 2009.  He is unlikely to change.

        •  There are plenty of reasons to both support our (0+ / 0-)

          President, and to not support him.  I support his good deeds.  I frown on other actions.  He is still the better choice (unless there is a more progressive candidate - but that would kill the vote by dividing it.)
          On this single issue, meaning this movement and the abuses of authority taking place, I believe my President needs to speak up and condemn the actions.  My vote isn't made due to any single issue though.
          Truly, he could have done better.  I have been both angry with him, and proud of him.
          And - what you find okay or not okay, is certainly not up to me :).
          What is important is that you and I are having a conversation about it.  Nothing happens if nobody pays attention.  You are here, and I am here, and neither of us is doing it through RedState.
          Note that I have recced some of your comments before this exchange, and not recced others.  There's no black & white.
          I have already agreed to disagree about whether or not Daily Kos users would cheer an attack from the National Guard.
