Reader comment on item: Obama's Leftist Conundrum
in response to reader comment: Same old same old...

I believe my comments were well directed because Daniel's comments contained none of the Nuance that he usually demonstrates it was a conclusion that he hates America that was clearly responded to by the "ditto heads" who bless all he says. I am an equal opportunity accuser when hate language is promoted by either left or right. I thought I made that clear. When Daniel makes distinctions between islamist terrorists and his hope for an eventual "moderate Islam" he demonstrates his admirable analytic powers. In this instance he does not . Your response also indicates a nativity about the right or conservatives not having intolerance regularly demonstrated. I thought that both the left and the right have lost any respect for good government which is what true conservatives should be about. In fact lately many can be well compared with leftist anarchists. Both are out to destroy the middle. Which is to me the where we all belong. Not left or right. Government is needed, taxes are needed, the old are our responsibility whether they contributed or not and this works for stability and a secure America.
