I was referring to your arrogant assumption of authority over Qubes. Your post as much says that he grew to your level of enlightenment. I read that as very arrogant and in fact elitist. Your judgement of others as entrenched or above it or below it (whatever "it" may be) is another indicator of your need to feel superior and indeed an indicator of your inflated self image.

No doubt you are a smart man, but humble, well that needs some work.

The Faux Fact Check was full of subjective and gray innuendo, very little that actually supported a notion of pointing out an ERROR [the use of imported oil amounts would be an example where it did show an error].

Otherwise, I agree with you, the subjective, spun report from Faux did FAIL.
Care to point out where Fox and the AP failed on this?

You still lack reading comprehension if that is the translation you gathered. You have to read both paragraphs to understand the context, but apparently that is too many words to hold together in your head. It simply says he GREW. It does not say to what degree or to any goal or aspiration. YOU are trying to fit that into a preconceived notion in order to make a point.

And judgment does not have two Es.

Let's just look at the first one as the rest are pretty much as careless:
OBAMA: "We have launched a housing plan that will help responsible families facing the threat of foreclosure lower their monthly payments and refinance their mortgages. It's a plan that won't help speculators or that neighbor down the street who bought a house he could never hope to afford, but it will help millions of Americans who are struggling with declining home values."

THE FACTS: If the administration has come up with a way to ensure money only goes to those who got in honest trouble, it hasn't said so.

Defending the program Tuesday at a Senate hearing, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said it's important to save those who made bad calls, for the greater good. He likened it to calling the fire department to put out a blaze caused by someone smoking in bed.

"I think the smart way to deal with a situation like that is to put out the fire, save him from his own consequences of his own action but then, going forward, enact penalties and set tougher rules about smoking in bed."

Similarly, the head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. suggested this month it's not likely aid will be denied to all homeowners who overstated their income or assets to get a mortgage they couldn't afford.

"I think it's just simply impractical to try to do a forensic analysis of each and every one of these delinquent loans," Sheila Bair told National Public Radio.
You have a broad brush statement by Obama and two cherry picked statements by others. The FACTS part asserts: If the administration has come up with a way to ensure money only goes to those who got in honest trouble, it hasn't said so.

That offers no proof one way or the other, purely subjective and purely leading. "it hasn't said so" is not a rebuttal.

Somehow I don't see even Faux resorting to sarcasm in a legit article. If so, someone needs fired as it further impugns their reputation.
