NY'er here and while I was not a fan of Cuomo, I thought at the beginning his press conferences were strong and what the people of NY needed. I watched them pretty much everyday but then you could sta

No idea what you mean by essentially but it’s rather amazing that anyone could think that Cuomo has gotten a free pass. 

So now we went from "show me a link" to "show me a link to someone other than a crying celebrity" to "sure he said it but he didn't repeat it" There's an old saying that I think applies here. If

I would post a link to a youtube video of biden saying that trump was responsible for all of the deaths at that time(which was over 200k then), and 1000 a day ongoing, but I dont want to get some retort about youtube not making the ever changing source list. It is easy to find so anybody actually interested can find it. 

Kingprawn is using some hyperbole because ultimately it isnt much of a stretch to say that accusing somebody of being responsible for a death is not really different than calling them a murderer. It is different, but it is in the ballpark.

Really??

Saying responsible vs murder is a huge distinction is my point.  I think a bigger difference than you are inferring here.

Opeds vs democrats claiming murder. Again very different.

And you are equating the capitol attack with what was being discussed which was covid.

Bad faith...like talking a post about democrats and covid and bringing opeds (not prominent democrats) and pelosi and the Capitol attack?

I dont think I claimed nobody stated it...I asked which prominent democrats stated he was responsible for murder...and even deleted the post minutes after I posted it (before there was any response) because I knew how it would play out.

Beat down...no.

Bad faith?  Yeah this and what you are responding to are definitely in bad faith.

Did either of you even read the links?  The closest you get is Michael Moore.  
I mean...I say prominent democrats, please no pissed off celebrities...we get op eds, Cher, Bette Midler and Michael Moore.

The links sort of make my point.  Democrats weren’t out claiming he murdered hundreds of thousands of people.

There are plenty who think he is responsible for more deaths that should have happened.  And I think that would be a fair statement about him given the downplaying of things to start.  Just as its fair to say Cuomo is responsible for excess deaths due to his actions.

Except in this case this began with me arguing that Cuomo shouldn’t be called a murderer, and then I was asked by @KingPrawnif I complained when Trump was called a murderer. I did. And I never argued that Trump wasn’t called a murderer, so @crackattack wasted everyone’s time by posting all those examples. Of course Trump was called a murderer. And it was wrong. So you guys have created this hypocrisy in your own minds.

I will continue to assert that prominent democrats did not claim Trump murdered hundreds of thousands of people.  Not did crack’s links show that any did.

Also that if someone said that about he or Cuomo would be wrong.

I guess the millions of people these "celebrities" and opinion people reach via Twitter and news outlets ar inconsequential. But Rush as an opinion guy/newsish person isn't. Crazy times. The influence "celebrities" have and opinion people matters. Good stuff. It only matters from politicians 🙄

Twitter is used constantly as a "source" from nobody's,  celebrities, and opinion people. Again. Crazy times.

I've heard on this very website that silence is compliance. Those "celebrities" donate to democrats. Those democrats accept their money along with the opinions they spew. So until democrats start returning money from celebrities who spew this nonsense, or condem those comments, I will assume they agree with such opinions. Seems fair.

That wasn't the point.  

Someone stated that Democrats were calling for this...I asked which prominent democrats (not some schmo off the street) and save me the pissed off celebs...Because we hear over and over that nobody cares what they think (and politcally, I agree, I don't really care what any celebrity has to say).

You proceeded to bring links to no actual prominent democrats...just bad op-eds (including a woman whose husband died), and 2 celebs that at this point have what type of following?  I mean, is anyone really out there giving much weight to what Cher and Bette Midler have to say these days?  Do you think they had the following that Rush did?  And who was talking about Rush anyway?  What does he have to do with the conversation?

The one politicians you bring up...was talking about the Capitol riots and not even Covid.  Which had zero to do with the conversation.

Are you serious with this?

So democrats should check the social media sites of every celebrity and see if there are any political opinions they disagree with - and if there are, then they should return any donations, otherwise it must be assumed they agree with such opinions? Okie Dokie.

If anyone comes here and says Trump wasn't DIRECTLY  blamed for the covid deaths on this country is just being flat out dishonest. Period

Yes, he was being blamed and rightfully so for his administrations inept response to the pandemic, including disbanding the pandemic task force Obama had set up, his discouraging of mask usage and social distancing, plus his denial of the seriousness of the COVID crisis, predicting repeatedly it would go away and disappear (most recently that it wouldn't be talked about after election day)

That said, being blamed for the deaths is not the same as calling him a murderer, which major Democrats and party leaders did not do, as that implies intent.

Did anyone say that?  Because that is certainly not the point I made, and don't recall others making it.

He was blamed for excess deaths because of his actions and inactions.  And I believe it is fair to put that on him.  Just as it is fair to do so with Cuomo (and other governors who took poor measures).

He wasn't blamed for "excess" deaths. He was blamed for ALL deaths. Unless you believe that all the deaths could have been prevented had Trump acted more responsibly.

No, I don’t believe there was any movement blaming Trump for all deaths.  If so...please post it.

Semantics.   I wont play that game with you.   Youre right.  I cannot find anything to show he went out and literally murdered every American that died of covid.  You got me there.

Stated differently earlier in the townhall as well and never repeated it...correct?

So was it some big movement that Trump murdered all of them?  Or that Trump was responsible for every death?  No...it wasn't.  It wasn't even a thing from Biden after that...was it?

It was part sarcasm, and you should know context and tone. It's a synthesis of yours and squis's arguments constantly on this board. And that you tried to explain it away by saying "But...but look at the fact checkers. They got it right." is right in keeping with the tone and main thrust of your post. You absolutely did do that. That was your line of argument.

And I'm done with this for now. You guys are making claims that aren't true about Cuomo and Democrats blaming Trump for the deaths of a ton of people. They did do exactly that. You should be making this about whether they were right or not. Because Trump being responsible and Cuomo being guilty of a cover-up are not mutually exclusive here. But you're so Team Blue that you'll deny everything to save argument face, even if the implied premises are faulty. (You didn't even need to worry about what Dems and op-ed people were saying. Cuomo doesn't undercut those arguments against Trump at all. All Cuomo's situation shows is that Cuomo ####ed up. Nothing more, nothing less.)

It was part sarcasm, and you should know context and tone. It's a synthesis of yours and squis's arguments constantly on this board. And that you tried to explain it away by saying "But...but look at the fact checkers. They got it right." is right in keeping with the tone and main thrust of your post. You absolutely did do that. That was your line of argument.

And I'm done with this for now. You guys are making claims that aren't true about Cuomo and Democrats blaming Trump for the deaths of a ton of people. They did do exactly that. You should be making this about whether they were right or not. Because Trump being responsible and Cuomo being guilty of a cover-up are not mutually exclusive here. But you're so Team Blue that you'll deny everything to save argument face, even if the implied premises are faulty. (You didn't even need to worry about what Dems and op-ed people were saying. Cuomo doesn't undercut those arguments against Trump at all. All Cuomo's situation shows is that Cuomo ####ed up. Nothing more, nothing less.)

It wasnt to explain it away.  It was to show it wasn’t some overall democratic  party theme or that through the msm.  Because the context of the discussion started when the claim was made that “President Trump was called a murderer of 300,000+ people throughout the presidential campaign by the Democrats. Was it just a game to them as well?”   And expanded further about those who even said death when people like cher and bette midler were brought up.

Joe said it...he shouldn’t have.  And to my knowledge did not state such a thing again and in fact inferred otherwise in that very town hall.

But that is not some big group of democrats claiming he was responsible for all...and that still appears to be the case.

And stop the team blue crap...because its a bogus argument to start woth.  Ive said both Trump and Cuomo screwed up and should resign and I wasn't the one to even bring Trump up.  The only argument I denied was that there were any contingency of Democrats claiming Trump murdered 300,000 people or was responsible for every death.

So now we went from "show me a link" to "show me a link to someone other than a crying celebrity" to "sure he said it but he didn't repeat it"

There's an old saying that I think applies here. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

 

We didn’t go from any of that to the next for anyone that followed what O actually said from the start nor what Im saying now.

Im in no hole.  Not digging.  I think it is more than clear “President Trump was called a murderer of 300,000+ people throughout the presidential campaign by the Democrats.” was not a true statement.  Even if the hyperbole of saying murdered is being taken out.

Biden saying it apparently once happened...but isn't Democrats throughout the campaign.   And again the full context of the townhall indicates he questioned how many would have died vs the whole time claiming Trump was responsible for all of them.  And Trump was brought up why?

Saying responsible vs murder is a huge distinction is my point.  I think a bigger difference than you are inferring here.

 

Direct Headline: ABC Spent Less than a Minute on Federal Cuomo Probe, Almost 4x on Cruz Optics

******

What about the distinction between the clearly left leaning MSM coverage that tries to obscure the Cuomo/NY/nursing home story?

Do you believe the concealing of facts regarding the death of American citizens deserve more than "less than a minute" from ABC?

Will you finally admit the largest distinction is - It's Just (D)ifferent

The liberal media will continue to make sure their team wins.  Cuomo’s situation will be covered up, ignored by most media outlets, and be forgotten in a couple of weeks. That is how this  country operates.   If you are a D, you love it.   If you are a R, you hate it.  In the end, everyone loses because this country is no longer about We, the People.
