“Look, these personal attacks have to stop”
I agree. Look in the mirror and say that to the person you see. I don’t engage in personal attacks, but I have received quite a few from others, yet I don’t respond in kind.
People engage in personal attacks or are accusing others of it, when they ran out of cogent arguments.
You say: “We want the GOP-e deleted from the Republican party, not given the keys to the White House.”
So you don’t want the Republicans in the WH, but you are fine with Obama being there for another four years...
They've become a drag on the Republican party.
Regarding personal attacks, when you accuse people who oppose Romney of being FOR OBAMA that's fighting words!
