Comments on: Obama says football helmet will come in handy at State of the Union http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/01/22/obama-sees-use-in-football-gear/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TyC http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/01/22/obama-sees-use-in-football-gear/comment-page-1/#comment-406289 Tue, 26 Jan 2010 13:09:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=24176#comment-406289 Eric.

Oh please, stop. We will never see the world the same way. Just because you see things as “mistakes” doesn’t mean the everyone views it as you do. So sorry to continue to disappoint you and your progressive mindset. We will never agree on the same things. That’s called debate and that’s why I am here. I don’t know about you. I just think sometimes you need to know others (a minority) think as you do. Sorry, I won’t enable you.

Nope, as I have said many times, Sarah Palin is not my first choice for president. Do I like her? Yes I like what she has to say, even met her once. Didn’t know that, did you?

You are a lefty and act as such. Just admit it and move on. Quit trying to hide.

I am here to debate. Stand up to your values and be proud you are a “hippy”, or whatever you said you were.

No, I don’t like the new Reuters format either.

My point was, in the year or so that I visited this site regularly I’ve only seen you admit that the Rep party made mistakes once, that being on Bush’s handling of the Iraq War. At the same time you have a tendency to lump anyone who disagrees with you into one extreme left, Obama worshiping, easily led group. The fact is that many of us on the left aren’t happy with Obama’s performance and did not support him in the primaries. We voted for him because the alternative was scary. Are you still on the Palin bandwagon? I see she sold out to Faux News.
I consider myself a centrist on many issues but you continue to see all that oppose your point of view as ……. hippies? Is that the word your generation is still using?
And yes I, like you, had to choose a different screen name when the format here switched, something I’m not a big fan of by the way Reuters.

You guys crack me up. It is as though you expect everyone to agree with you, no debate, no discussion, no nothing. Just agree with you and all will be well.

I am here to debate the issues, but for some reason you seem to want yes men who agree with your point of view.

I have a right to my opinions as much as you have a right to your opinions.

No, I do not subscribe to anything the left has to offer. Yes, I am a conservative. No surprise there. Yes, I know you are progressive liberals. Again, no surprise there.

Each side makes mistakes, it is human nature. I don’t get what your point is Eric. I am a conservative and not a liberal, so don’t expect me to subscribe to your progressive views as a result. I won’t and don’t expect you or anyone else to take the conservative side. So stop with the “will never admit…” this or that.

Now, back to the debate….

Only when corporations no longer have a lobby in congress will the people be heard. Revoke corporate citizenship/personhood.

This is the core reason that debates which start out focused on the citizenry become transformed into accounting, and profit protection issues in congress. The health insurance companies should not have been able to weigh in on the health care debate. They are the reason the bills have been transformed into insurance reform bills. They are also the reason both bills has provisions that force citizens to purchase insurance.

Corporate America needs to stay out of government. The government is the vehicle of the people. When corporate interests take the wheel, the citizenry loses.

Revoke corporate citizenship/personhood and return the government of the people back to the people. If the Obama team does this, the citizenry will benefit greatly.

Still up to his old tricks, bashing the left while never admitting that the right has made some massive mistakes. Don’t bother trying to debate him, just do your thing and let him rave to himself.

Brown will probably get blown out at the next election once he reveals his teabagger credentials for all to see.

That’s as good a story as Obama saying the election in Massachusetts is a result of the last 8 years. Wait, that makes it George Bush’s fault.

So, Massachusetts elects a republican to the US Senate for the first time since 1972 because they are mad at George Bush.

Now there’s a story that no one believes in except the president his die hard supporters.

Just saying…..

There are folks here who will keep posting back at you until you just give up and move on, as many have. You are right about Massachusetts, but don’t fret. Brown will probably get blown out at the next election once he reveals his teabagger credentials for all to see.

TyC merely attacked your point of view and said you were wrong. That is debate.

But you, in response, accused him of being a paid blog stooge. That is a personal attack.
