That's just an outright lie.
What is really clear as crystal is that you will go to great lengths (and loads of unnecessary words) to buttress the AP/lib spin.
Your only position on this thread is the AP/lib-spin position.
This is my last comment on the matter. I will happily ignore anything else you have to say, since you do not display any reasonable interest in discussion.
You cannot recognize even my simplest statements, you have to distort everything into your own twisted agenda.
My interest on this thread has been to DEFEND the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth against persistent MSM distortions. I was irritated that Newt cooperated with that MSM agenda in a way that is slanderous to the SBVFT.
How you can pretend that my utter condemnation of the entire “Swiftboating” meme is any endorsement of “AP/lib-spin” is simply nonsensical.
I am condemning all attempts to continue the lib smears of the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth.
You obviously either don’t know or don’t care anything about that history.
I am not *endorsing* any AP/lib-spin on Gingrich, I am merely pointing out the thumpingly obvious (to nearly all but you): that Gingrich played right into the hands of the MSM spin machine (as evidenced by the headline and content of the article).
What they did with his comments was utterly, transparently predictable.
Because I point out that Newt should have anticipated how this would be mis-used to perpetuate the false “Swiftboating” meme, you pretend that I am *endorsing* what the MSM does.
That is beyond asinine.
I’m speaking from the precept of “know your enemy” (lib meda) — stating that Newt usually knows the media games very well — but in this case HE (not me) served that AP/lib-spin agenda very nicely for them.
Why you persist is distorting and misunderstanding my comments is your problem not mine.
You are one of the 2-3 worst posters I’ve ever dealt with on FR and I don’t wish to talk with you again.
So let’s please ignore each other from now on.
“Romney Boated” was being used as a pejorative term. The obvious implication was that being “boated” was a bad / underhanded type of thing.
He wasn’t paying Romney a compliment when he compaired him to the Swift Boat Vets.
He didn't. That's ignorant propaganda. He did the exact opposite.
I know all about it. I have fought it every inch of the way. It is history now. All you are doing is trying to lay the blame for it on Gingrich.
How would you know you didn't even bother to listen to them? You took what the AP said as gospel without checking. Then you condescendingly dismissed the idea that you should listen to the actual exchange.
Ignore you? I will post to you any time I feel like it. Although your incredibly verbose ramblings are tedious in their emptiness so I certainly don’t look forward to your responses.
