I am so asking for it by posting this, but I can’t just pass up sharing this observation. If you browse the comments of “Phantom Birth Certificate,” you may notice an interesting trend.
Obama critics cite sources, examine evidence, and are generally courteous to others.
Obama defenders, on the other hand, parrot lies, run away when proven wrong, and disparage character via ad hominem or simple insult. Those who would berate me and claim that I’m committing credibility suicide have done little to support that claim, nor have they done much to build up much credibility for themselves.
The mainstream media would have me to believe that the situation should be the other way around; critics of Obama are supposed to be the hateful and ill-informed. Big Media gets it wrong again. Big surprise.
I’m posting this to ask the simple question: What is it about posting a, if valid, very serious criticism of Barack Obama’s presidency that makes Obamapologists bear their teeth and lose all signs of rational thought?
And is it the same irrationality that would lead them to elect such a despicable, obamanable man to the highest office in the land?
Thanks for reading, and thanks to the Intellectual Redneck, lukemcgook, Dave C, and Scott for bringing their patience and insights into the comments thread in question. (Oh, who am I kidding: Thanks to everyone who commented; I enjoy all of your comments, no matter who you are or what view you bring to the table… Unless that view is of selling viagra; straight to the spam bin for you!)
And now an exercise in following directions: Please don’t use the comments form on this post to discuss the issues raised in “The Phantom Birth Certificate”; this is a separate post for a reason. Organization FTW.
