View Diary: When there is no pie fight (17 comments)

  •  as a former pie fighter, let me say this: (15+ / 0-)

    my views haven't changed.  only my desire to state them again and again and again has.

    we had this same exact fight in 2010 and 2011.  I'm just tired of it.

    it's not that I think he screwed any pooch.  for that matter, I'll wager most of the same people who never trusted him still don't.  most of the same people who did (post 2012 election, I mean) still do.

    •  That's my take on it. (7+ / 0-)

      I see the same usual suspects stating the same smears about him and I am just too damn sick of it to fight about it again. These people aren't worth the effort. Besides Obama won re-election and changing people's opinions of Obama here isn't worth the effort.

      Besides most of the people who were strong supporters of Obama have moved on from this site long ago.

      I do admit to being disappointed that Jed has bought the same toxic Obama character attacks that many of the other FPs have been using for years now.

    •  My views have changed a bit (5+ / 0-)

      Since it's not a hugely compelling story, however, I too lack a profound desire to state them again and again and again.

    •  Amen (5+ / 0-)

      Besides, I read through the above mentioned diary and saw a post stating something to the effect of "well, where are his defenders now, huddling behind the curtains?" or something.

      ::deep sigh::

      No, actually, I just went on winter break a few days ago and immediately came down with the flu. Well, almost immediately. Iow, I've been kind of scary sick in that this seemed to come out of nowhere and I can't go outside now without breaking into wheezing and I can barely swallow and all that stuff, and I just don't do sick very well.

      In any case, doesn't matter---that seemed like the perfect way to shut down any possibility of discussion.

      I don't know what's going on. I'm not a mind reader. I haven't followed much of anything the past day or so because I've been knocked out in bed.

      And given what I've seen here the past few hours, I will probably go back into my old mode and not rely on Daily Kos for news anymore.

          I'm fine as long as I'm inside, but there's something in the air outside that is making me start to wheeze. It hasn't gone very far because, the minute it starts, I run back inside.

          Believe it or not, though, I am better. I'm no longer losing gallons upon gallons of snot from my nose, I can now lay down for an hour or so before my nose clogs back up, etc.

          Still, I'm giving it until tomorrow, and if the air outside still sets off wheezing, I'm going to the doctor. Otherwise, I am better.

          I'm planning on making ice cream for dinner ...
