32. Certainly looks like the OP is trying to highlight criticism of Obama as "bashing" .....
Edited on Tue Nov-16-10 05:26 PM by defendandprotect
and "Skinner agrees" with YOU -- :eyes:

Certainly think that will bear some future testing!

But I'll leave that to others to decide for themselves --

bashing = referring to President Obama himself in a disrespectful manner

Don't see that in your explanation here ...

I don't mind "criticism", what I hate is when DUers use the same Rovian techniques that we all railed against when Republicans used them. I come to DU for facts and serious discussion - when I see some DUers twist the facts and post questionable links just to "bash" anyone - frankly, it pisses me off. I thought We were better than that. I used to send links from DU because it was a reliable source - but no more.

Do you want to restate any of that cause I don't see that you came anywhere near addressing
or unveiling anything like "referring to Obama in a disrespectful manner" -- ?

And ... here again, same thing ....

What amazes me is that some DUer's seem to have adopted Republican techniques of mis-information to "bash" Obama and the Democratic Team.

Once again you fail to cite any example of "disrespectful" reference to Obama --
but rather equate criticism of Obama and Dems to "bashing."

And I pointed out this one to you in my original post ....

In closing - I have no problem with legitimate criticism of Obama and his policies. Nobody is perfect, and constructive criticism can be very useful. What I have a problem with is when people twist the facts and turn potential "criticism" into "bashing" for - I don't know - I simply have trouble understanding the negative attitudes some of these people have.

Again, absolutely NO citing of "any reference to Obama in a disrespectful manner" --
rather you are again suggesting that criticism is "bashing."
