    it's impossible to understand what you mean when you say "going along."

    so instead of assuming people don't know what they're talking about... lets just ask a question.  and define the term.  it's why i offered the example above.

    were democrats "going along" with repugs on the afghanistan campaign and, if so, was that wrong??

    •  Nonsense (none)
      That is what annoys me about you. Never admit a mistake.

      Avoidance: Conflict and discomfort by going along to get along, hence not getting dismissed.

      No, Dems were NOT going along on Afghanistan.

      They wholeheartedly and rightly agreed with the attack on the Taliban and Al Qaida.

      They WERE going along on Iraq.

      What is your problem?

      •  because (none)
        They wholeheartedly and rightly agreed with the attack on the Taliban and Al Qaida.

        certainly sounds to me like they were "going along" with it.  i'll be happy to admit the  mistake of not seeing what you meant.  

        now i see when you're saying someone is "going along"...  that means someone is agreeing with something they do not wholeheartedly or rightly agree with.  

        i really don't want to revisit a debate on the iraq war in this thread.

          Did you really not know that?

          •  this may sound overly glib (none)
            but if you want an answer, this is the best i can do.

            if a neighbor goes to see "good night, and good luck" and i "go along" that doesn't mean, in my mind, i don't want to go see that particular movie.  "going along".. honestly.. does not imply against my will or better judgement for me.

            more particularly, and i said i wouldn't go into this cause it's not what this diary is about, but screw it... it's because i still find the idea that dems "went along" on the iraq war in that sense of the word insulting to those dems.

            for instance, i don't think congressman Murtha was just "going along" with repugs on iraq.

            •  I agree (none)
              Many Dems agreed. Murtha. Dicks. Lieberman.

              A lot of Dems went along. To really annoy you - one of those was Kerry.

              •  i know that's your opinion (none)
                i think we already know it's a cul de sac to decide for others why they did something.

                i mean i can't prove to you kerry didn't just "go along."

                but... just to annoy you... i know for a fact... he didn't.
