89. What happened? I think this cycle produced a little expressed, copped to, or understood...
appreciation for RW tactics on what is thought or claimed here and elsewhere to be the LW. For instance, I cringe x( when Obama is portrayed as the new, improved great delegater. Reagan was touted the last Great Delegater, with bush as a small 'd' delegater that has delegated himself so far off the map so as to be easily seen as not merely aloof; but void of mind and emotion. I don't want another delegater. I want my president involved. The kick-back demeanor of the delegater with shoes up on the table, or his hand forever to his ear, "What!? Sorry! Can't quite hear you! HELICOPTER!! Heh-heh!" only seems a utopian goal. The world is a more dangerous place these days. Now will I be TS'd for saying such as thing? Time will tell, or should I say: regardless...

There are several variations of "Et tu, Obama" threads continuing to receive rank hive, group-think, swarm treatments and externalized pathologies. It would seem I'm not able to make the kinds of changes that would stop any of it; but to suggest that reinforcing such group-think enables some within that hive mentality to presume they have carte blanche to continue it's more negative characteristics. Up to and including intolerance queue the Alert Feature.

Yes, many even vile posts fly beneath the rules radar; but if "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet", then any ditto-head is still able to smell like ass.

Exit the people we care less for stage right. And to some, not all but some of them I say, "Adios!"
