HRC supporters...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

There have been many OPs framed that are intellectually disingenuous by HRC supporters concerning the support a nominee should have after convention is over and GE starts...

If it's their candidate that comes out on top they have posted OPs in GD-P like this:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511161717

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511562983

but from the 'safety' of their own group they post like this:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/110793009

So why the double standard HRC supporters as it pertains to whomever wins the nomination?

Why not be as honest in GD-P as you might be in Clinton group?

Allow everyone to see your positions as they really are now rather than after the convention...

So a non-answer pivot, ok...

Should I say I'm not surprised?

Should I say I've 'looked at my own house' and that's why I posted this OP because I DID take note of my findings?

Can or will you answer my question now?

Your side is not in a position to judge us.

And also that the Hillary forum is readable by everyone, so it would be a really dumb place to try and hide anything?

It's why I posted the OP in the first place, to allow HRC supporters to give a response

If you're unable or unwilling to answer the question I posed in the OP then so be it...

I've always been of the mindset to listen to all points of view, even though some folks may not be deserving of such... knowing and understanding the 'players on the field' has always been important to me

I just want to understand the intellectually disingenuous nature of the HRC supporters on this point
