    the comments.  75% of the comments over the last two months.  Damnit... I am totally pissed.  seriously.  I'm a fucking Obama supporter, and yes, the obama supporters on this site are acting like 4 year olds.  And I have to admit, I'm seriously wavering here.

      watch the youtube video that she included in her post?

      If you didn't, you should.  It will explain the reactions of some commenters.

        It makes the case that Obama lifts speech lines from other speeches.  It's a drop in the bucket of what the republicans are going to throw at us here in a few months.  It's all fair game.

        Get a stomach, and stop trolling around on patrol for any message that isn't 100% supportive of Obama and go do the hard work necessary to win us a presidency.

          and you didn't think that all the comparisons to Malcom X were a little over the top?

            John Edwards, by that rationale, and Maria Shriver, and Cesar Chavez.

            Here at DKOS, we often have diaries thin on substance that people just don't comment on - they just float to the bottom and out of relevance.  But if it's a diary critical of Obama, you elevate it by your very attacks, and that is the problem - it will continue to be a problem with the supporters of this campaign as long as they react so defensively and with such paranoia to anything askance to their beliefs.  This very behavior stinks of the very fundamentalism that is wrong with so much of our country.  Also, I think it is, unequivocally, a losing strategy for november.

            Obama's not scary, but some of my fellow supporters for this message absolutely terrify me sometimes.

          by a supposed democrat on dailykos, NOT a wingnut on freerepublic or littlegreenfootballs.

          Something's clearly wrong with her picture.

            Obama 'supporters' doing their very best to drive away  Democratic voters for the reason of 'pro-Obama' purity.

            We even have one person hiding behind a 2-year-old to say F U to the diarist.

            Right now I am at the point where I'll vote Obama to keep the republicans out, but I will not lift a finger to help or defend him when the media start their McCain love-fest.

            'Kumbaya' is not a plan.
