68. one may either make his case by lashing out out emotionally

or take a more cerebral/academic/or just plane good-mannered tact. the latter may still illicit rudeness from knee-jerk obama supporters (of which i have been from time to time, especially during the election.) and again i apologize to anyone who has criticized the president in a civil manner, and gotten rudeness or snark from me. conversely i think those who lash out in ways that attack the president and his motives in a manner that is a vicious as any tea bagger nut should be prepared to get back what they dish out.

perfect example: the president "putting social security on the table." i agree with the president's critics in regards to the CPI mess. However, here is how both camps (DU) drive me nuts, or at least a small group that thrives on arguing for arguments sake.

Group One: Let's continually post threads about Obama plan, nay desire) to destroy SS. (Even thought tis is hyperbole at best and straight out ingeniousness at worst.)

Group Two: He never agreed to SS cuts. (hyperbole at best and straight out disengenousness at worst)

Group Three (my group): Let's hold BHO's feet to the fire - in a positive way. Let's call the White House, fence sitting Dems and even GOPers, flood them wit e-mails. And keep posting. But let's get over the proving who is right and work to a common goal like we did in November.

That Goal:

Restore Middle Class Tax cuts and strengthen, not weaken the social safety net!
