SOME of you guys (and gals) in here are pathetic in your partisan bias...are you seriously telling me that there is "No one" who would boo Obama...get serious. Please, I thought you were smarter than that. Maybe I was wrong about a few of you. Don't let your enthusiasm for Obama destroy your common sense.

No, actually no one does that. But it would most certainly be considerably less people that would boo him. Hence, it wouldn't become an issue.

I'm pretty sure the people who wrote no one would boo Obama were just trying to get your goat, HV. Seems to have worked.

Yep, you're right. But I also got a few "goats" myself.

Especially in Philly.

Most politicians would get booed in Philly at a sporting event. Obama and Biden would be exceptions, though, because a lot of people like the former and the latter is a local guy.

I even think McCain's reaction would be mixed. Nobody likes Palin, though, and a lot of people were pissed that Ed Snider made the opener a political statement.

You take the words too literally.

At an event like the Flyers home opener, most would cheer. Thus, those that would boo would either:

a. Get drowned out.
b. Choose not to because they knew they would get drowned out.

Thus, the media would report that he got a good reception because what you would hear is cheering.

I think it's your bias that is getting the best of you... Of course no one is literally saying "no one" would boo Obama but it wouldn't be like this scenario. I ask you again, why do you think Palin was booed?

His bias? What bias? He's repeatedly claimed to be an Obama supporter.

You can keep 'em. I'm not really partial to goats.

Yes but have you noticed he has a very strong bias against anyone who has any criticism towards Palin? He writes every single critique off as bias, or "you're completely wrong".

He either has a crush on her, or he wants to be able to tell everyone "I told you so" about his Palin prediction thread... or a combination of the two.

I would think that hockey crowds, in general , might tend to be Democrats. Tough crowd too.

Well now it seems that the baby daddy of Bristol Palin has decided to quit high school with one year left, something he'll need for the rest of his life to go out and work. I don't find that admirable I find it stupid. Are there really no family members willing to help out for the next 7 months so this boy can get an education to support his family for the rest of their lives?

Just imagine his level of crucifixion by the AM talk radio heads had his mom been a dem.

You mean there are no "pro-life" organizations to help those kids out? Or, like always, is their concern only for a fetus and not the parents?

I am sure Palin could pull some strings and get the poor boy a job.
