130. I would bet that I worked as many hours and contributed as much to help Obama get elected
Edited on Fri Dec-19-08 06:03 AM by No Elephants
as you or any poster did. However, that does not make me idolatrous. I am going to speak up if I see a wrong, no matter what its source. I don't think we do ourselves, our country or any politician any favors by not keeping them accountable.

I think that Obama made a mistake with Warren and I don't think it was an insignificant mistake either. You disagree on the importance of it, but that does not make you correct on that point.

I am expressing my opinion about the issue, both to www.change. gov and on a message board, but without attacking anyone personally or calling any poster silly names or making any assumptions about people whom I know less than nothing about.

Nothing about what I am doing is inappropriate. Both message boards and are, after all, for expressing opinions. By going personal when your pronouncement is questioned politely, instead of sticking to issues, you, however, do come across as bitter.
