Good job left-wingers.
By questioning the messenger and trying to discredit him before he had even delivered the message, you actually gave him more credibility in the eyes of nearly everybody who doesnâ€™t share your far left viewsâ€¦that being 75% of the electorate.
See, they donâ€™t like name calling, and they trust the military to give them the straight dope. At least they trust them a hell of a lot more than a group whose sole purpose is to rally the decidedly caustic, one-issue netroots.
So they didnâ€™t think Petraeus was going to â€œBetray Usâ€. And by the way, that headline was clever, but only if youâ€™re in 3rd grade. â€œSee, it rhymes! AHAHAHAHA! Call the NY Timesâ€¦this is the one!â€
You also single handedly gave the right-wing a lighting rod to rally around so the focus is off the issue that you wanted to highlight in the first place.
Go home MoveOn. Disband already. Please.
