re: #24 Obdicut

Tu quoque is not a responsible game for conservatives to be playing right now.

Obama repudiated Wright for his statements. He’s repudiated the terrorist actions of Ayers, and Ayers himself has repudiated violent terorrism.

If “Guilty as hell - free as a bird” and “I would probably do the same things again” is a repudiation I’ll buy that for Ayres.

And I was not engaging in “they did it too” I was illustrating the fact that politicians can’t help getting involved at some point or another with a wide variety of characters and “guilt by association” is an easy game to play.

Mind you I’m not a fan of what is happening on the far right, but I also don’t thing CPAC represents the mind and spirit of the average conservative or even Republican voter. You saw in New York how the middle-right split with the far Right. I can’t see that as the mainstream getting into bed with the wingnuts.
