You certainly have an interesting idea of "no real evidence." Testimony from an eyewitness is not considered "real evidence"?<quoted text>
...when you have no real evidence of what you claim, it certainly is suspicious.
When someone reports that they had a conversation with someone else, you have to make a judgement about the reputation of the person who claims it happened. If you actually read the article, you would know the people who claim George W. Bush made those comments: Bob Woodward, and Palestinian foreign minister Nabil Shaath, and Mahmoud Abbas, former prime minister and now Palestinian President. These seem like pretty reliable sources to me, and they are people who had access to President Bush. You also have consider the words they claim the President said. Are they words that he would likely say, or something totally out of character? George W. made no secret of his Christian faith, so it seem very reasonable that he would pray about a difficult decision like the Iraq invasion.<quoted text>
"A person" made a statement of this or that, so because you dislike or hate Bush, then just believe it and post it as if it were an irrefutable fact.
Let's make it more specific: You are an anonymous poster on Topix, that constantly refers to our President as "DumBama", obviously has a partisan ax to grind, you say heard something that is at odds with public statements by the President and you can offer no evidence of access to the President Obama that would put him in a position to hear this. No, I wouldn't believe you.<quoted text>
So let me ask: if somebody makes claim that they heard DumBama say he was a closet Communist out to destroy the country from within, would you believe it if I posted it?
And, while we are talking about this, insults based on mocking a person's name are pretty juvenile. I know you probably hear Rush or Mark Levin do it, and you must think it's pretty cool, but it really doesn't help you convince others. Do you want to try to change peoples' minds, or would you rather just insult them? It's hard to do both.
