...know-nothings and smart-mouthed adolescents who just make up horrific things out of whole cloth (as two have done on this thread)

(snip)

...especially since a couple of the worst offenders here are practically still adolescents.

(snip)

I am convinced that there are least some of these people who hate him because of his character, and not in spite of it.

(snip)

And these people are drenched in hatred, fuming, steaming, vomiting hatred.

(snip)

The demons were out in force on that thread

(snip)

Several things here:

One, I have not found anyone here on FR attacking Bush due to his character, ohioWfan. I have, however, found many people attacking Bush because of his actions: the push for amnesty, the bailouts, signing McCain-Feingold, NCLB, the Medicare expansion, etc. And there is nothing wrong with attacking him over those items.

Two, breaking out the ad hominems, i.e., "demons" and "adolescents," etc., as you are fond of doing, generally tends to indicate that you don't have an argument, something I wouldn't expect from someone who in the past has claimed to be a professor.

Three, and finally, breaking out the word "hate" is something I usually only hear from left-wingers and -bots (e.g., Romneybots, Bushbots, McCainiacs, Obamabots, Sarahbots, etc.). Nobody here hates Bush, except in your mind.

You haven't been on FR long enough to understand the degree to which OhioWFan is speaking. Both she and I have been here since the start of the Bush Admin in 2001. We have seen, read and responded to things to which you have no clue. We have seen civil discourse and disagreement. But we've also seen all the nastiness that FR has to offer when it comes to Bush.

OWF is right.

So before you go off half-cocked, educate yourself.

And you, of all people, should know the degree to which this has been done simply by looking at how some freepers (yourself included at times) attack Sarah Palin.

I have far too much gray in my beard to be an “adolescent”. I’m knocking on 40’s door. ;)

That said, age does not beget wisdom. It just means you’re old.

“Two, breaking out the ad hominems, i.e., “demons” and “adolescents,” etc., as you are fond of doing, generally tends to indicate that you don’t have an argument, something I wouldn’t expect from someone who in the past has claimed to be a professor.”

The fact that she views all those who oppose LBJ II *because of his politics* as “demons” with whom she is engaged in some sort of mythic spiritual battle.... is truly bizarre.

We also apparently don’t believe in God because we don’t believe in George.

But leveling all manner of personal attacks at those who defend his character, including filthy comments such as yours.

(Did you learn that tactic at Liberty Post, rabs?)

And you are still practically an adolescent - you're not old enough to know a lot about life, just like everyone else your age. Which makes your harrassment of people who support President Bush even more offensive.

And for your information, there were demons out in force on the Pray for President Bush thread. Do you believe in spiritual warfare, rabs? Are you a Christian? Did you see the kinds of evil comments that were deleted by the Mods on that thread? I do and I am, and I did. And I could ping a few of the people who authored and who prayed regularly on that thread to back up my comment about demons. Spiritual warfare, rabs. It exists.

Now, as rintense has said, you don't know what you're talking about. You're too young. You're too inexperienced, and you're too new around here to know what's gone on over the years.

btw, I feel the need once more to say, I stated that I was an adjuct professor on my homepage in 2001, and haven't talked about it since. It is you who are obsessed with bringing it up. It's just what I do, and I said it.....NINE YEARS AGO.

It's a bizarre obsession. Get over it.
