    Actually, I was responding to "The rest is 100% correct." You only took issue with "No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals".
    I am pissed about this line: "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers". This insinuates that "liberals" don't give a crap about security. That is a untrue generalization and that was part of your "rest is 100% correct" that I was responding to.

    Gee, it seems someone else has noticed there is a double standard when it comes to conservatives vs. liberals.

    C'mon Richard! What does this mean?
    Or are we only supposed to read the parts of your links you perceive as supporting your position.

    What it means is Lott, when initially confronted with his statement, before it became THE hot topic and Dubbya weighed in, probably offered the same type of mealy mouthed, weak apologetics you accuse Durbin of. That of "sorry if I was misunderstood". He was trying to put out the fire before it got out of control. He didn't being enough extinguisher! AND we can probably assume Durban in his latest statement is acting as firefighter also.

    That puts both their apologies about equal on the crocodile tear meter. That Lott eventually fell on his sword after Bush piled on is irrelevant and seems the action of a man desparate to get back on his feet and maintain some of his former power and prestige after literally being cut off at the knees, from behind!

    Big difference between the Durbin and Rove comments... Durbin is not the one holding one of the puppet strings attached to Dumbya.
    When Durbin stands before Dumbya "advising him" :rolleyes: on a daily basis as Rove does, I'll then expect his resignation too.

    Well, I like the comparison I saw this morning. ABC & NBC waited 7 days before reporting on Durbin's comments - that is until after he apologized. CBS never reported it.

    ABC & NBC jumped on Rove's comments immediately.

    And that's the name of that tune.

    When you use terms like "Dumbya" it shows your ignorance, immaturity, and complete lack of tolerance for anyone who dares disagree with you. Try making adult arguments, like an adult with substance and without the childish name-calling.

    This coming from a person who recently called me a "typical bigot"**. :rolleyes:
    Funny also how you talk about "tolerance", but your direct remarks(and name calling) to me about my posts, shows very little tolerance in itself. :rolleyes:
    I guess it's ok for Bush supporters to use the name "Dubya", but for his detractors not to use their own play on the variation.

    **Could of swore there was a rule about that in the Potpourri Forum Guidelines/Rules(not exactly his first offense either).

    I'm still waiting for the "it's being discussed" response. :rolleyes:

    As for my beloved "Dumbya" label, funny how the right wingers never took issue to Clinton being called "Slick Willy", ....among others. :nono2:

    I never once called President Clinton "Slick Willy" or anything else. I called him "President Clinton". As for my calling you a bigot, it's not "name-calling", it's a correct label. Just as you called me a "Conservative". I simply pointed out that you made some bigoted comments.
