I couldn't believe McClatchy would publish a headline that casts doubt on Obama. Maybe with their company, delisted from the NY Stock Exchange, and plummeting to earth, they've made a last ditch effort to gain readers by printing real news even if it might darken Obama's brow. Maybe?

Hey, I hand't caught that, look at the McClatchy motto. Riiiigght.

So one cannot be “critical thinking” and hardcore Republican?

Sure, but there are just as many here on FR that are Hardcore Republicans first, then critical thinkers second.

IMHO, I'm a conservative precisely because I'm a critical thinker. Being able to objectively and dispassionately discuss ideas should be a foundation to conservatism. It's one thing that separates us from Democrats.

BTW, I don't think that conservatism = Republican so much anymore. In many ways, they're a close approximation and closer to conservatism than Democrats....but in many others, they're little more than Democrat-lite. BUT - that's a whole other thread, and something that we could kick back and forth all night. :-)

My work? I wish. Alas, I had to steal it from another thread.

“BTW, I don’t think that conservatism = Republican so much anymore.”

Agreed. A sad state of affairs.

I understand your point, now. Thanks for the clarification.
