Folks! What good do we do when we express contempt and disdain for those who disagree with us? I can't think of any.
Sharp disagreements are to be expected. But can't we engage in those disagreements while recognizing and remembering the inestimable value (to us!) of the folks on the other side?
I am a strong supporter of Mr. Obama, but I want to know why the folks who dislike him dislike him. I want to know their (your) reasons. I want to know how they (you) see things--not to hammer them (you), but to understand.
And I appreciate your replies and perspectives. I also ask your patience and forgiveness for the Obama supporters who say insulting and demeaning things in these comment sections.
