One of the most overused expressions in political discussions is the "both sides do it" thing. As if every mis-step or infraction carries equal weight just because it is a mis-step or infraction.
Yep - Bill Clinton had extramarital affairs and paid a big price for it. They began impeachment hearings to nail him for Whitewater, but when they couldn't find anything on that they switched to his sexual proclivities. Fair enough and not only did he get impeached, he was criticized up and down both sides of the aisle and 30 years later is still labeled as a cheater.
But even pretending to compare what Trump has done to what Biden has done is beyond absurd. On the one side is a guy who is a serial adulterer, who cheated on all three wives, virtually abandoned his children, paid off hookers to keep them quiet, bragged about sexually abusing women, and regularly disparages women in his words and deeds.
On the other side is a guy who was faithful to his first wife who died in a car crash, adores his second wife and by all accounts is wonderful husband and father, but who gives too many hugs and gets into people's personal spaces.
Just quit with the conflation of these two men. I have said multiple times that I would NEVER leave my granddaughters in the same room with Donald Trump, but I would have no qualms about that with Joe Biden. There is no comparison.
You're shouting into a hurricane Lynn. It's in the first chapter of the Trumpian hand book. Create a false equivalency, no matter how absurd, and beat that drum for all it's worth.
Again, reread Lynn's first post on the Gopher's Thread and tell me who has been civil and rational and who hasn't. Again this is the Gopher Wrestling Thread and right away what was Lynn's first response even though neither wrestler has been charged but held.
Take your Unjustified, Rational, and Civil Democrat Party bullshit to the other thread. Thank You.
I'll take my sane progressive, non alt right philosophy to any thread I please. You are entitled to peddle your ignorant tripe where ever you want as well.
Again, take it where you want but don't call yourself civil or rational and then accuse someone that was only held of being anything but innocent until proven guilty.....seems racist to boot. Feel free to reread Lynn's original response.
Peddle...I haven't peddled anything but to call out this crap on this thread....again using big words but just name calling underneath it all. I respect you philosphy and stance....can't say the same about the name calling. Makes any point you are trying to make worthless.
