Comments on: Why did Romney quote Thomas Paine? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/01/why-did-romney-quote-thomas-paine/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Absinthos http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/01/why-did-romney-quote-thomas-paine/comment-page-1/#comment-423034 Thu, 02 Feb 2012 00:09:05 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=38961#comment-423034 Analysis of the above broad strokes: Not a Romney fan at all. Ron Paul 2012. However, in looking at the above article, it seeks to do what many seek to do with such similar apathy to fine argument. In assailing a Single sentence that was quoted, the author brings up the Entire history of Thomas Paine, and obviously many of the darker points. I would put forth that the willingness to do so shows, quite starkly, the obtuseness of the author, and, indeed, the obtuseness of many inner mental responses that are a mere drop in the bucket of good argumentation. Not that this opinion argued anything but instead lightly suggested that…
My point being: Please put more effort into your opinion articles. It is bad enough that most folks barely gloss the media they use to form their shallow opinions they call facts, don’t encourage it with softer opinions. What did you really want to imply? That Romney quoted someone who opposes the audience he is courting? That it thereby implicates him in Thomas Payne dying a drunk? That you know they darker points of one man? I would state that it is wise to use the genius of other men, regardless of their moral or political character. Now that’s arguing something.
