You can't expect to make statements like that and get away with it without showing some facts of your own.

Come on guys, stop being so hard on Chuck.





Anyways, forgive my slight delay, I've been catching up on the thread,
but thought this was indirectly relevant (or not ) a few pages back with regard to teleprompter/lack of issue.

Juuuust saying.................

If you disagree, you should submit a complaint to Joe Biden when he returns to the Senate after he loses the election in November.
I have no idea what you're trying to say.

My only point was that the President is important in picking Supreme Court justices.

We've had time to figure things out about the other canidates, they don't need to be publicly vetted, she does, and that is exactly what's going on.
So tell me where it states that a Presidential nominee has to do their vetting process through the media?

The public should and will seek more info but rumors about her child, affairs, being a Nazi supported, a Buchanan supporter, she cut funding for unwed mothers, she's anit-semitic....on and on.....that is not vetting. It IS liberal bloggers that have started these vicious lies. If you want to bury your head in the sand on it, fine. Its not like I think any of you are really willing to see her qualifications and know the truth. It seems you are wringing you hands in hope and excitement that this crap might be true. Give it up. You can call me paranoid but the reactions of several of you on here just makes me laugh. Its clear the I hit a nerve with you.

What's clear is that you came in here swinging without getting a feel for the place and people first. You have started out here in an extremely partisan way, so forgive us if we don't take you too seriously when you blame others of being blinded or so partisan we can't admit our own mistakes.

As to your rumors page, I haven't even heard of most of those, but I can believe that some were speculating on them even though they may not have been true - a lot of the blogosphere is speculation on rumors, and that is certainly true for both sides of the political spectrum. There are also some errors. That page claims she turned down the money for the bridge. Which is misleading. The bridge wasn't built, but the money was not returned to the federal government. A lot of those "proofs" aren't even proofs either, just dismissals without any actual evidence to back them up (the reason for the firing of the librarian & police chief, for one).

I also can't help but notice that the issues that I have consistently brought up here about her, and the ones I have challenged you on several times, are either not on that list, or are confirmed true, though in in cursory terms ("yes, she did take money from the federal government"). I can surely admit that some of the rumors are false, but I have not been on here spreading any of those rumors except the ones that your "proof" page either doesn't address or admits are true.

Interesting.

You're missing my point. I'm saying this is what the media does, because that's what the public wants. We want to know something about the people we're voting for... The public knew nothing about this woman. So of course the media is going to start finding information and with the race for information and trying to be the one that breaks the next story, some things are going to be wrong.

You don't think people care about these things? Of course they do.

Vicious lies? The whole baby story thing was stupid, someone spoke before they had all the facts straight, but I haven't heard any other vicious lie. I've heard stories that haven't been clear, and information taken out of context. But like I said that's going to happen when people are racing to get information.

I do want to know the truth.

Why do you think you hit a nerve? It's funny how you are concerned about rumors and lies yet you posted one of the biggest lies in a thread that wasn't even on topic.

You came in swinging and attacking yet somehow "we're" at fault...

I'm not sure how you can say came in swinging. I am passionate about what I believe and I take the time to research and develop my opinions. I dont mean to offend anyone but it did seemed that everyone in here were big enough boys and girls to have a rational debate about this election. There seemed to be plenty that are clearly supporting Obama that are dishing it out.

I respect everyones opinion even if I dont agree. I've heard a lot of...that was sarcasm, responding to me. You all can be sarcastic but nothing I say is? I think you might all be taking a lot of what I say a bit too personally for some reason.

I'm sitting here at home laughing at most of this. I feel like Custer! I'm surrounded. You wont change my mind and I know I will not change yours BUT what I have read from all of you has challenged me on what I believe and solidified my opinion that McCain should be our next President.

Believe me, there is nothing personal here. Regardless of who wins, we are all in this together. Stuck with what comes next good or bad.

BVS, you are not representative of the FYM community at large. If you choose to believe that you are, then you are deluding yourself. You have a consistent habit of trying to isolate and embarass conservative posters. You do not display the consistency you demand off of conservative posters in your own posts.

Maybe something to bear in mind when you are giving your moral lectures to people.

Don't you just hate it when rumours are started,
turned into half lies from the mouths of people who have everything to lose, twisted out of purportion,
spread like fire and then shoved down the public throat as truth,
just to make someone look bad because you don't like them?

Kinda pisses one off.
I know it would me.

I don't have time to go through these one by one right now, but numbers 35 and 40 are laughable.

35. yes, she did fire the Wasilla Chief of Police as Mayor; yes, it was because he was lying to the City Council.
40. yes, she did ask the librarian if some books could be withdrawn because of being offensive; no, they couldn’t; yes she did threaten to fire the librarian a month later; no, that wasn’t over the books thing but instead over administrative issues; no, the librarian wasn’t fired either; yes, the librarian was a big supporter of one of her political opponents; yes, the librarian was also the girlfriend of the Chief of police mentioned above; no, this is not the first time in the history of civilization that someone has been threatened with being fired over a political dispute

First, no sources linked to, regarding the Police chief lying to city council, and that he was the boyfriend of the librarian. Nice. Also, because she's not the first one to use her office to settle a political grudge, that makes it okay? Btw, it wasn't just the librarian and chief she did this to, either, there were numerous others she attempted to/did fire.

I just have an expectation that the process be fair. I remember a time when journalists had to satisfy a burden of proof before the information was taken to the world. That has changed. The Dan Rather National Guard story was a sad example of how far this has fallen.

I'm sorry if I said something to offend you. That is not at all my point. Please dont mistake a debate about things like the treatment of Sarah Palin and the rumors that are flying, as any kind of personal attack for me. Not the case. I respect your opinion.

I am glad you don't wish to make the debate personal, but when you say things like this...

If you're hitting a nerve, I think it may be because you're taking an extremely personalized and angry-sounding tack here about defending your preferred candidates from 'liberal bloggers that have started these vicious lies'. Three of the six rumors you listed above are one and the same (Nazi supporter/Buchanan supporter/anti-Semitic), which was shot down immediately (from 'the left') as soon as it appeared in here; I don't recall anyone here speculating about 'affairs'; and the 'funding cut for unwed mothers' was immediately skeptically questioned (again, from the left) as soon as it was posted in here, too. To treat it as a foregone conclusion that that list is some sort of sinister emblem of what people in here must be 'wringing their hands in hope and excitement' over does make you sound like you're taking this all a bit too personally, yes. You don't need to demonize your opponents to rebut their debating points.

That's great, I would love to have a rational debate, but when someone comes in with "left" this "liberal" that, posting bullshit videos, attacking the forum as a whole it doesn't come off as rational.
