You’re more than welcome, Marie.

Oh and you know what’s funny? I clearly recall the President making that remark on attacking character because at that time he had me fooled.

So when both he and Biden resorted to this tactic in their debates it triggered the flashback of Obama saying that.

Alrigty then Marie, have a great week!

Hi Marie, I enjoyed your ivillage post. Here’s the thing I liked the most…

Whereas, the narrative that has owned the vp debate has been Biden’s behavior during the debate I enjoyed how you attacked the merit of his statements.

In retrospect, maybe that was the whole point of his disrespectfulness…To distract the viewers so that they would pay more attention to style than substance.

If that was their original goal, then I guess by those standards the incumbent camp did ok.

But what it boils down to is the fact that we, as a voting populace, just need to wake up – now! That’s why I was so encouraged by your write up.

What I found especially poignant, in your argument, was this

“As a deeply religious woman, the question (and answer) that bothered me most was that regarding religion and abortion.

Biden said he has issues with those who would force their views on others, yet he completely ignored those of us on the right who feel this administration has done just that by forcing religious institutions to violate conscience when there are other (currently taxpayer supported!) organizations such as Planned Parenthood, who provide the same services for free. ”

Keep up the good work, Marie!

Thank you, Benin! I appreciate the encouragement. I think you are correct in that even the President (in an old quote making the rounds) said, “if you can’t argue on substance, attack character (paraphrased).”
