Using an "Et tu" argument means you arent actually addressing the original criticism, you're saying "You do what you accuse me of and therefore you have no right to accuse." But it doesn't actually address those accusations as one can be a hypocrite and still be right in his accusations.

Also what youre accusing Biden of in your posts isn't the same thing I was accusing O'Donnell of, so its not even an "et tu" argument its just "well you aren't perfect either" argument.

Well I got two things to say:
1) I'm not Joe Biden
2) That doesn't address the point.

Firstly, you dont know what socialism is, its obvious you've never seen or lived in a socialist nation.

that's ridiculous, we're americans

Secondly, are you telling me that the reason the Republican party/ideology doesn't have more supporters is because it has too many supporters? What I'm reading is that people left the party because Bush tried to make it too encompassing, and the only way to make it bigger is in fact to make it smaller by throwing out people like Castle and his supporters?

w-stands-for-what's-his-name is history

whatever he did or didn't do with his party is trumped TODAY by obtuse obama's pushing huge swathes of voters into the red arena

11 points is a relatively huge lead. Especially this close to election day.

she cut it 5 points in one day. You refuse to look at what was said before she won.
