  •  Because Obama is, like, smart (0+ / 0-)

    I can't fathom him being cavalier about choosing a chief of staff. Thus he had to have had good reasons to make the decision he did.

    •  "Smart" does not equal "good." (0+ / 0-)
      •  and I didn't call it a good decision (0+ / 0-)

        Would it help; if I said "sound reasons" instead?

        Or are you seriously arguing that he didn't really think through this particular appointment?

        •  Would make more sense than "good" (0+ / 0-)

          ...if the rationale is that he is "smart."

          Are you seriously suggesting that asking about your rationale is arguing something?

          •  You say that as if an argument is a bad thing (0+ / 0-)

            I meant you were proposing a different version of things than I did. Which technically is an argument. I certainly didn't take it personally or consider it an attack, which to me is a different thnig than an argument. Arguments are good.

            And I need to find a new tag...

            •  Same diff (0+ / 0-)

              I meant you were proposing a different version of things than I did.

              OK...

              Are you seriously suggesting that asking about your rationale is proposing a different version of things than you did?

              •  good point. (0+ / 0-)

                Change that to that I inferred that you would propose a different version of things. If incorrectly, then fine.
