Dear Mr. Inquisitive,
I think you need to eat your Wheaties this morning. You've woken up on the wrong side of the bed. But no matter...sticks and stones and all of that
stuff. You don't bother me.
Don't watch the movie. No one cares if you do nor not. The introduction was actually very short. The movie basically showcases ex-Obama supporters
and their concerns about the current president. It is very informative, but you don't seem the sort of purpose who makes informed decisions.
Why, exactly, did you post?
You didn't watch the movie and had nothing to add, except to be insulting and rude.
That's a relfection of you, my friend. Not me.
Now. Go eat your Wheaties.
Wow. That's your response to my post??? That says a lot more about you than about me.
Here is my full post, which you didn't include in your response what so ever:
"Thanks for yet another post with a video link with no short summary/explanation of what is in it. And thanks for all the unsubstantiated,
anti-Obama hyperbole. You folks have ALMOST convinced me to vote for Romney. But no quite.
BTW, I did watch/listen to the first 100 seconds of this video and all it was, was a long-winded introduction by some internet nobody, so I turned it
off. For you to recommend such time-wasting material without giving a summary is terribly bad form on your part. I could say more, but why
First of, the intro was not short. As 1:40, there was no end in sight and it was only a 20 minute video, so the intro was 10% or more of it; that is
not short, particularly for a video with no summary provided by the linker you it, i.e. YOU. I did have something to add; I was pointing out that you
created a post using poor form, i.e. not providing a short summary of the video to give potential viewers a gist of what is on it, and if it is worth
their efforts to view it. I was also commenting on what a waste of time it was to bother to view it, given the long, pointless, rambling
As for the content of the rest of video, from the intro and from what you say, it purportedly interviews former Obama supporters in swing states and
why they aren't going to vote for him this time. Well, who knows who these people are. These are excerpts from some 60-min. video/movie hit piece
entitled "Hopeless" (or something to that effect); I've heard about this video and know it to just be a propaganda piece.
For the record, I don't bother viewing pro-Obama propaganda videos either. I am not an Obama fan or supporter per se
, but rather I am dealing
with realpolitik and voting for the least of two evils, and calling shenanigans on all the hyperbolic anti-Obama rhetoric being spewed out by the
Right, the GOP and the TeaParty. Frankly the nominee you cats have is SO BAD, that your only hope of his (Romney's) winning is to disparage his
opponent, Obama. The US suffered through eight years of a terrible, rich scion of GOP politician, i.e. George W. Bush. The last thing we need to
do is elect another one of these consummate losers who was born with a silver spoon in his pie hole.
And to your claim that I was being insulting and rude, I'll let the gentle readers decide for themselves; I've reposted by previous comments above.
But your lame/dull barbs about eating Wheaties and getting up on the wrong side of the bed are not rhetorically compelling, let alone witty. But hey,
use all the dull-witted ad-hominem attacks you want. They reflect badly on you -- not me -- champ.
As for whether or not anyone cares if I view this video or not, you're probably right -- with the exception of myself. But if you think that means
that I have no right to comment on the video -- which I attempted to watch, but got bored to tears over, and was able to infer was just excerpts of a
notorious, right-wing hit-piece video -- or to comment on your OP, which was decidedly in poor form because it didn't provide a brief summary of the
video, you're terribly mistaken.
