  •  You don't think he should try to at least not look (0+ / 0-)

    hypocritical?  Isn't that a more important part of his job?

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

      objecting to China or any rival hacking our info. That's part of his job. Snowden made the job harder when he spilled his guts to the Chinese press, but the job doesn't change.

      And no, I don't think we should stop gathering intel on what the Chinese are doing. That's part of the job too- the best defense is a good offense. I don't expect China to like it any more than we do but it's the way the world works and always has. The only thing that's changed is the technology.

      •  No wonder you don't object to hypocrisy. (0+ / 0-)

        You're a hypocrite too, by your own admission.

          Anyone who's not naive about the reality of international interactions must be a hypocrite.
          Swell chatting with you- I do so enjoy ad hominem arguments, but I'm off to do some hypocritical stuff. Ciao.

          •  If you don't see that there's something very (0+ / 0-)

            wrong in complaining to other people about their behavior when you indulge in precisely the same behavior yourself, you're morally obtuse.

            You apparently think that to believe that people should behave with common decency is to be naive.
