I don't consider my behavior in this, or any other thread, stalking.
My conclusion, as stated, is that he started a new thread so he could highlight his insinuation that the Capitol Hill Blue article is a political hit piece.
The real story here is that there are reports that Bush is sullen, depressed, and withdrawn, that his behavior is erratic, and that he is taking mood-altering drugs to deal with these symptoms.
Majic is claiming that the real story here is that someone wants you to believe this story about Bush.
No, the real story is that Majic is using his standard smokescreen tactics to distract you from the story about Bush, by insinuating that the Capitol Hill Blue article is a political hit piece, and by talking learnedly about perception management.
Since Majic is the real story in this thread, my posts are on-topic, not stalking.
I think Hillary would look better in a tube top.

Newsflash: I Know More About Me Than You Do
You are wrong. I am neither a Republican apologist or a Bush defender.
I am decidedly opposed to Marxism, however, so I can understand the confusion. It is not clear to me that being opposed to Marxism is necessarily the same as being "right-wing" (except in a bipolar view of politics), and I take great personal exception to a lot of what is considered "right-wing".
What I do seek to avoid is the use of labels and broad brushes to paint misleading pictures of me. That naturally puts me at odds with your desire to identify, categorize, label and dispose of me for your convenience rather than consider what I am actually saying.
For reasons that should be obvious to everyone about now, I try to avoid having the topic revolve around my personal political positions.
However, it is wrong to suggest that I am not honest about them.
My political message is, in part: Look beyond the hype. Don't believe everything people tell you. Look for the truth. Don't let others think for you. Make informed decisions.
It is a controversial message, I know. But it is a message I believe in, and I am very up front about it.
All this is an interesting side note to the topic, which you are illustrating masterfully. So thanks!

Have you ever heard the saying that, when you are in a hole, you should stop digging?
[Long list of flattery not included.]
Are you saying that people who disagree with you are Marxists?
In particular, are you implying that I am a Marxist? This looks suspiciously like a velvet-glove version of the standard right-wing smear tactic of calling political opponents communists.
The labels I have put on you are accurate, and I am not painting a misleading picture of you.
You try to present yourself as a disinterested truthseeker, so your Republican talking points will seem more plausible.
You have been dishonest about your political positions in this thread
ATTENTION READERS!!! Notice that several times in this thread I have stated that Majic's posting history confirms that he is a Republican apologist and Bush defender. Notice that Majic has never challenged me to back up this assertion with examples from his posting history. That should tell you that I am accurately characterizing his posting history.
And what topic would that be, O Master of Smokescreens and BS?
