I would like to quote this for future viewing due. It is 100.00% accurate.

Actually, yes. And that is a truthful answer. I knew who Huntsman was before the election primaries. There were no other Republicans I was fans of. Mostly because of their ignorance (Santorum, Perry, Newt, Mitt).

How is pointing out that the game is rigged, which it is, victim mentality? When the NBA put Joey Crawford in game 6 I knew the heat were winning the NBA championship (everyone knew). Being observant is a good thing.

Do you honestly believe that only republicans say stupid things?

Joey missed those two free throws down the stretch? SA gagged in game 6. They melted under the pressure.

Of course not. But, Pelosi and others in the DNC have gotten called out and lambasted in the press when they have put their feet in their mouths as well.

You do realize that more of the country was rooting for SA than Miami, right? Did you see the SportsNation polls. It is a MUCH bigger story and media frenzy if the "big 3" don't win. Not to mention what it would do to the NBA "hot stove". A Miami loss keeps the NBA more relevant. Now with Stern on his way out and SA had been Cuban and the Mavs, I can maybe see the argument. But, not with SA.

You are getting conspiracy theory obsessed. It is approaching JonJon territory

Of course not. Do you honestly believe that the media only points out when Republicans say stupid things?

If so,

Shouldn't you be posting articles no one cares about while exercising your inability to establish and defend a position?

How is the game rigged? People who use that excuse typically never had a good strategy to begin with. Instead of realizing their shortcomings the ego shifts the responsibility somewhere else.

I just want understand this. Pointing out disparity in coverage or misuse of fringe elements, is victim mentality?
Can you tell me then what you would call 5 years of blaming Bush, or obstructionism?

You mean like claiming to have inherited every bad thing or blaming every failure on your predecessor?

Parties have their uses, it is blind allegiance to party that really poses a problem.
