  •  seriously? (0+ / 0-)

    It's an analysis. It's not a story about how good the speech was or the reaction to it. It analyzed if Obama - like his campaign said he would - answered critics and got specific.

      Now I can't be sure about this... but I do not think you're a Democrat master94.  I noticed that you referred to the "NM gov" instead of referring to him by name.  Most of us real Democrats know the New Mexico Governor as Bill Richardson, the man who ran for president and is the only hispanic governor.  Bill Richardson is a beloved icon of our party and most of us would have referred to him by name.  That raises my suspicions about you.

      •  He's definitely not a friend (0+ / 0-)

        He's written only 10 comments in the 5 months since he joined and they are all defending media that attacked or criticized Obama.  

        •  5 months since he joined? (0+ / 0-)

          I think you need to look again.  Unless my eyes deceive me, master94's user id is 17283, and yours is 121313.  Neither of you two joined 5 months ago; master94 has probably had an account for at least 3 years.

          •  I was agreeing with Wanderman's skepticism (0+ / 0-)

            It's very late and you're probably right that I misread his UI but that does not invalidate what I was conveying in my reply to Wanderman - that the 10 comments master94 has written in the last several months do not appear to be supportive of Obama or Democrats.

      •  look at the user id (0+ / 0-)

        The AP article when I just read it had a time stamp close to ten minutes before the comment you're responding to, and it corrects the length of the speech and is somewhat less critical.  I think the AP guy knows he fucked up and fucked up good.  He's backtracking, but there's only so much you can do once a major news anchor calls you out.

        If anything, the commenter just read a new and improved version of the original hit piece.
