    since the debt deal, he has been very good with the "bully pulpit."  Reading that diary this morning made me think we were in 2009 or 10 with the health care wars.  Some folks are just stuck in a reflexive anti-Obama position and they've dug in.  I've given up on most of them.

      And it's not just the criticism that bothers me - it's the attacks on anyone who supports this President.

      I'm not talking about arguments between people - I'm talking about the vilification of those of us who want President Obama to have a second term.

      Sometimes the language people use has nothing to do with proving a point, and everything to do with trying to shut down disagreement. That really bothers me. I saw a poster in another diary doing that to you, and it really upset me, especially considering his reputation here. He was attacking you, not your position. That strikes me as wrong - and a tad bit desperate.

      In my opinion, if you cannot defend your position with reasoned argument and have to sink to ad hominem - you have no argument to defend.
