I don't think I'm above being partisan. I am partisan in my ideals. However, I am not a blind partisan that is unwilling to criticize or acknowledge the failures or misconduct of my leaders simply because they hold my ideology.
I also believe that reasonable people know what is reasonable. Yet, IMO, many unreasonable things have occurred and have gone unaccounted for since this administration has taken office. Yet, far too many who are obviously reasonable people seem unwilling to acknowledge even the slightest misstep by this administration. One only has to look at the current state of affairs to know that mistakes were made.
I have recited on this board those issues I have with the Clinton presidency. I have also bashed the democratic party from the first time I logged onto this board.
So, while I may have partisan ideological beliefs I also try to apply objectivity for my own sake. That (and considering what Bush has given us to work with) is one reason that the double-standard that is applied by so many conservatives, and their use of deflection and personal attacks, is so unbelievable to me.
