  •  That's not what I'm referring to. (0+ / 0-)
    And Greenwald is a snake. He's one of the Libertarians that gained a Liberal following during BushCheney because of his opposition to their wars, then smoothly swiveled into Obama-hatred even before Obama was inaugurated.
    The guy is half full of sh!t and has no compunctions about twisting the facts to fit his agenda.
    This is unsubstantiated drivel. No links.
    •  Read his stuff, then check original (0+ / 0-)

      source material.  Or search the people's view.  He gets called out for Fox techniques regularly.  

      Best bet, though, is fact-checking, something we should all be doing when hysteria reigns on the Internet.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      •  Read whose stuff? (0+ / 0-)

        Greenwald's? He documents his positions thoroughly.

        As for The People's View, I see no reason to read fawning drivel.

      •  Greenwald holds Obama to the same standards... (0+ / 0-)

        ...he held Bush to.

        I imagine that's what you object to, isn't it?

        And when Obama did the same thing that Bush did, he called out the fawning, hypocritical sycophants who screamed to high heaven about Bush's assaults on the Constitution and Bush's illegal war in Iraq, for example, but who then defended Obama when he continued the same war and the same assaults on the Constitution.

        I imagine that's what you object to, too, isn't it?

        •  Really. So I was hallucinating (0+ / 0-)

          when I read a rant, er reasoned and logical critique, that picked half-sentences, glued them together, left out paragraphs that clarified the actual statement in order to claim Obama said something he never said.

          Sorta like the you didn't build that controversy.  I expect better from people who claim to be lefties.  Or thinkers.  But that's just me, not fawning over Very Important Writers.

          I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
