54. That you cannot see what I question is your problem
I would often question most posts that automatically get those gazillions recommendations that show nothing but a mass hysteria. Especially the ones demanding (in CAPS) recommend this to... so and so.

Too many DUers do not bother to question, and to think for themselves. It is just one cheerleading and viewing the world in black and white: everyone who agrees with Bush is satan, everyone who hates Bush is a saint (just an example).

I've got news for you: the world is not black and right. Just because many DUers click and nod for the most outrageous posts does not make that opinion right.

Look at the hatred poured at Tim Russert, at Gerald Ford, at Ronald Reagan. Instead of analyzing their contributions: good and bad - they are treated like garbage.

I pity the people who hide behind the anonymity of the Internet to hurl hateful remarks just for the same of making outrageous comments. How angry and lonely they must be. And forget the fact that politics is the art of the compromise. I cannot wait for the hateful and contempts that will be hurled at Obama once he takes office because, well, he will have to compromise and because no one, not even Obama, can be everything to everyone.

I have no idea what the "talking point of the media" are. I read two newspapers every day, from the opposing political spectrum, plus more on online. I am open to listen to all opinions and to reach my own conclusions. You, apparently, are comfortable in reading only the un-Fox Fox that would justify your narrow view of the world. And then, when your hopes come crashing down, because you have failed to observe the real events around you, you wonder why this has happened.
