The original point is that liberals are condescending in general. Conservatives are often dismissed as being less intelligent, out for the rich, corrupted by money/business interests, warmongers, etc. Moreover, their political victories are dismissed as being the result of sleazy right-wring attack machines or even the voters being stupid or misinformed.
You yourself engage in this kind of thing. Almost every left-leaning poster here does it. We've seen countless examples...liberals tend to not just disagree
, but savage
their opponent personally. If someone posts he/she listens to Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck or--God forbid---agrees with something Sarah Palin said, that person is savaged. These viewpoints are almost always dismissed no matter how well-supported or reasonable they might be (not that they all are). Worse still, the person originally espousing the viewpoint is savaged, particularly if its a national figure like the aforementioned.
Do you honestly not see this?

I think it's fine to point out a promise has not been kept...even if one doesn't want the resulting policy implemented. You could look at it as intellectual dishonesty, I suppose. However, one could also see it as adding
credibility, since the person doing the criticizing has no motivation to lobby for said policy.
Btw, if you care to look outside the US (not literally of course - don't worry, no need to get a passport) then you will find that there is a worldwide economic slump.
It would be difficult to lay the blame for this on Obama, or even to argue that 'liburuls' have caused it or indeed that it has anything at all to do with US home policies..
Very difficult argument to make - and foolhardy - but if anyone can I am convinced you are the man for the job!!
Edit: My God...I just noticed you quoted Ayn Rand and in YOUR SIG so people might notice!!!!! Hahahahah..I'm sorry but you - just - could - not - make - it - up ! lol
I don't think anyone blames "this" on Obama (if by "this" you mean the financial crisis). However, many rightly blame him for the policies he's implemented that have very likely delayed recovery and that will
have a devastating
effect in the future. One can
take issue with Obama still blaming "the previous administration" 13 months into his first term. One can
correctly observe that Obama and his Administration clearly have an anti-business, anti-free market viewpoint that calls for government to "create jobs and stimulate the economy." One can
point out that these policies didn't work in the past and won't work now. Right?

Don't worry the video of it will be up soon. They were probably just spelling it phonetically so you wouldn't say it wrong.
We wouldn't want a nuc-u-lar moment would we?
Wouldn't have seen this if you hadn't quoted him. Nice. Incidentally, I had someone tell me he was an "officianado" [sic] of fine cigars the other day. Douche bag!
