People typically engage in activities they enjoy. We all enjoy different things. There is no important substance beneath that thin veneer.

Professor Plum in the Drawing Room with the Candlestick. Every time you play the game, a different conclusion points toward the same end.

until Obama has accrued an actual record to defend or oppose…it's all just so much schoolgirl chatter, isn't it?
Yes, but the president’s loyal opposition does not seem to think so. And their position as Bush apologists merits debate and rebuttal, imo.

As to Obama’s actual record: his failure thus far to support an investigation into possible Bush crimes, the time frame for removal of troops from Iraq, and possible expansion of the war in Afghanistan are on the horizon.


It’s normal in all communities – online or otherwise – for member to come and go. One hopes new, interesting members will choose to join. Some stay away for a while for their own reasons, such as Nao, and return accordingly. Dig, as you recall, waited out the pre-election fireworks.

Drew is a man with many irons (and copper) in the fire – this may only be a hiatus for him; as noted he gave no indication it was a permanent quit. His return is possible and will be welcomed, as would be other constructive contributors.

Bush Hate Syndrome is the root cause, coupled with fragile dispositions of the sufferers. When confronted with the same stimuli they happily dished out before the elections, their mental house of cards crumbles to the ground.

Not drugs then? You sure?

Than support an investigation – what are the facts? Perhaps your man will be exonerated. Fact Hate Syndrome can be debilitating.
