  •  Maybe we should vote for the GOP (0+ / 0-)

    if Obama's the second coming of Bush, only with better packaging, on this issue, as you seem to imply here.

    •  you can vote for McCain if you wish (0+ / 0-)

      an aging, warmongering lunatic with an anger control problem may float your boat, but it doesn't mine.

      What you don't grasp is that I can have a clear understanding of what Obama represents, and still support him as the lesser of two evils.

      Supporting a candidate does not mean turning a blind eye to his flaws and pretending they don't exist, as you appear to believe.

      •  You just said very clearly (0+ / 0-)

        that he cares about neither the Constitution nor the rule of law.  How could you vote for someone like that?

        •  because McCain is worse (0+ / 0-)

          I can vote for Obama because I don't need to fool myself into thinking that everyone I vote for is great and pure.

          I can vote for Obama and sleep soundly after doing so, knowing what he's done, because the alternative is an unmitigated disaster.

          You, on the other hand, appear to have a need to distort reality in order to pretend Obama is something he's not. Because you need to feel good about your vote and have a clean conscience, and you can't possibly acknowledge any imperfections. It's really the same attitude that the Naderites had in 2000.

          Anyone who really believes we'll actually withdraw from Iraq, or get real universal healthcare, or make a serious push to switch to alternative energy under Obama is living in a fool's paradise.

          But under Obama, there is some hope that the American republic can be restored in the future. Under McCain America is finished.

          It's an easy choice.

          •  Rank stupidity (0+ / 0-)

            Either I agree with your contention that the Democratic nominee cares about neither the Constitution nor the rule of law or I'm "distorting reality."

            I need another break from this site.  Have fun spreading bullshit.

            •  you are distorting reality (0+ / 0-)

              how is it that you can assert with a straight face that Obama cares about the Constitution when he voted--ex post facto--to legalize an illegal wiretapping program that violates the Fourth Amendment? That's a funny kind of caring.

              In any case, you're clearly more interested in contention than understanding. You offer no arguments, but merely angry ripostes that don't come anywhere near the point.

              I spent an hour writing a post full of links backing up my point yesterday, hoping that you would read it and give me a thoughtful answer. Instead I got a whiny, petulant crack.

              It's clear you're impervious to evidence. So I won't waste my precious time trying to change your mind.

              Have a nice day.

              •  So exactly as I said (0+ / 0-)

                either I will join in your contention that Obama cares neither about the Constitution nor the rule of law or I am in denial, impervious to evidence, uninterested in understanding, (did I get them all?).
