Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I'm sorry, but I don't quite get that.....

it's Ok for the media to incessantly discuss someone who knows a Democratic candidate....
A distant someone who may have done bad things in the 60s', when the candidate was like 6 years old....and
link these bad things back to the candidate directly via guilt of association and call the Democratic candidate names,
and advertise adnauseum based on a barely there relationship as though it was a major character flaw.....

but it's not ok for the media to discuss the actual candidate and what he actually did in the 60's that was bad?

and why have the GOP made such a fuss for such a long time about Pres. Obama's transcripts and his "essays" while
he was in his early 20s while he was in undergraduate school, if that was such a longgggg time ago?

I believe the difference between being 20 years old and being 18 years old is like...2 years, no?

How does all of that work???

If a republican does it, it's OK.

4. I don't quite get why the media


continually asks high ranking members of the Bush administration who failed in national security and in the Iraqi war, all of which failed to meet the objectives that they were charged with to comment at length on the Obama administration's policies, all of which have succeeded.

6. LIBERAL MEDIA

I have had absolutely NO HOPE whatsoever that this situation would get any real air nationally.

Mittens already has done or said 100 different things that would be a career ender for any democrat.
