DUers who want to get away from the bashing report in!
I'm sick and tired of all this "Clark said the war was the right call" "Kucinich is a nobody" and all this bashing garbage. Remember thatn whenever progressives fight with each other, the only people that win are the republicans.

We're all fighting for the same common goal of getting the Nazi-in-chief out of office so lets quit this childish bashing. They are all great candidates and each and every one of them bring excellent characteristics to our advantage.

4. I hear ya, only way that is going to be done is to start another web site.

or uninvite certain types, I have bashed back today cause I am sick of it. Don't get me wrong I love DU, people here can be fun in the DU lounge, as far as production it is the best, we got. Defeatist elitist tend to infect anything left of center, they naturally complain. These people don't read the history of political campaigns, they haven't learned anything from the last election. As Bob Novak said, the left, progressives, are one big circular firing squad.

6. I'm in .
I was considering dropping out of DU for awhile because of the hostility. I don't mind a little questioning of the candidates platforms and experience, something that we all should do. But the meaness that has emerged, not to mention lies, inaccuracies and statements taken out of context as gospel truth, goes beyond a rational discussion of political candidates IMHO.

8. I agree-I haven't chosen a candidate yet
The most nauseating was the questioning of Kerry's war record. I think the questioning is valid, but even with faced with the facts, the bashers continued their diatribes. There are other incidents that I can't think of offhand, but I really think we are providing Karl Rove with some excellent ammunition.

15. I think Karl Rove IS doing the bashing
or at least his surrogates.
Let's face the facts folks: Many of the 'bashers' aren't even Democrats. They'll never vote for the Democratic candidate, unless it's that ONE AND ONLY candidate they support.

7. Here, here.
Edited on Tue Sep-16-03 06:40 PM by Melinda
I'm here less and less for just those reasons. I not only want my country back, I want back the DU community I found in in the spring of 2001 and grew to love.

20. Was I bashing candidates?
I wasn't/ I was telling people who constantly PM me with things like "Clark is a warmonger" that he isn't because I actually have evidence, unlike them that think that all generals are neo-cons.

24. Your evidence was missing the months immediately prior to the war
Edited on Tue Sep-16-03 06:58 PM by nothingshocksmeanymo

10. Some of the DU posters suck
They will support one and only one candidate. When that candidate loses in the primary, they will not show up to vote for the Democratic nominee. I call them Democrats*.

* If and only if their candidate wins.

17. I think it's generaliZation.
And I wasn't calling people out or bashing candidates in that thread. I was educating the stubborn posters who constantly want to portray Clark as a war monger since he's a General.

22. Perhaps a course in civility would help your candidate?
So far the only real negative about Clark are a few of his DU troops.

Just trying to educate some of those people because I like Clark and hate seeing him diminished by well intentioned, but rather rude, supporters :-)

28. Hey, don't look at me to rescue you.
If you are interested in repenting then just review your posts. They tend to start off on the "wrong tone" when addressing a multi-candidate audience. Folks got feelings.
