      ...your response than this diary was? Hmm. I love that logic: "Don't comment if you agree. Comment only if you disagree-or have nothing else to add". Gotcha. I'd rather bring back the old days here of heated discussions and debates where issues were hashed out in the comment section, and diaries weren't accepted or taken as the final word. Have we become nothing more than cheerleaders and pom poms? I'm not buying that. I never rec'd a diary-or any comment for the sake of mojo. If I rec'd anybody, you better believe they earned it.

        ...of having a fight.

        I see plenty of contentious diaries filled with comments on issues where there is broad disagreement here.  Anything involving Obama's security policies, the NSAs, or drones are good examples of where we see diaries filled with comments going back and forth between those who agree and disagree with the diary in question.

        But in this issue, there just isn't much flame bait.  Even those who feel that Obama should have fought harder for a public option recognize that the Republican response is entirely nuts and counterproductive.

          ...I love a good debate. But I hate to argue for the sake of argument or being contentious. Call it being frustrated when I see a great diary that illicits or garners so few comments or responses one way or the other. Maybe the readers just left the battlefield-the other diaries you spoke of that had so many debates-and they were just catching their breath. That was my own observation. You don't have to agree. That's ok. Enjoy the rest of your day Texas Tom!
