When will we stop whining about the attacks on each candidate?
Especially the whining from people who engage in it themselves on a regular basis?

We should rename this forum to GD:Hypocrites.

1. It works both ways, of course.
The whining about Clinton, Edwards, and Obama by their detractors is no less prevalent.

3. I didn't mention any candidate on purpose.
I see the whining from all sides whenever anyone says anything bad about their sacred cow.We have a couple of posters who post a whine fest almost every other day about attacks, all the while attacking. It's a mixture of funny and pitiful at the same time. :shrug:

5. I'm pretty soft on all the candidates.
I've stated that I don't like Hillary or Obama very much, but I've never used any of the terms that get lobbed around about them.I've never used "Corporate whore", "warmonger", "Barack Hussein Obama" (we know why anyone tosses in his middle name), etc.

My point was that the people who DO use them are quite often the first to whine about attacks on their choice. They should either stop doing it themselves or buck up and take it when it comes back on them.
