35. Confused?
You can disagree with the post. You can point out where you think it is wrong. But calling it right wing is just an indication of not understanding politics.

See. You have a post that condemns Obama for not being left-wing enough, for not battling against the right-wingers. Then you complain that the post is right wing.

What shows is that you don't understand right wing and left wing. Now you might want to call Obama left wing. Go ahead. But to call a post that want's him to stand up to the right wing a right wing talking point is kind of silly.

Unless you don't really care about policy or principle. If you want to just label some person as the standard for left wing or right wing. Then you could snark on anyone who disagrees with your icon of leftness as a right winger without regard to definition or principle. Sort of like how one high school football team will call another their enemy. Hey, if it's all just a game to you, then you can go ahead and ignore what is written or what is said. Just pump up the volume and don't try thinking. Just be true to your school.
