69. indeed

I think that's entirely valid point on the obstructionism. Imo those lefties who critique him often have valid points as well, but when it comes to righties, more often than not, their criticisms are based on lies or hypocrisy.

Most of them are still seeking vindication and validation for having supported Bush throughout his reign of error and terror, which is why so much of their BS takes the form of "Well, he's worse than Bush was!". That's why they have conveniently forgotten what he left BHO, and pretend that he started with the same gifts Bush subsequently squandered, as opposed to having to clean up that mesh in a fraction of the time they took to make it.

What I was wondering though, has the lefty participation here dwindled in recent times? It use to be that just about every thing I'd open up would have a lot of participation in it, and in my recollection, much more than I see now on average. Did I miss an upheaval and migration outta here by a lot of lefties? The reason I ask, is because I wondered in the past if all the discord I was witnessing between lefties here over criticsims of BHO wouldn't result in something like that.
