Hypocrisy seem rampant in people who identify as conservatives. Frankly, I think they can't justify their position on many things without resorting to some form of hypocrisy.
There are obvious rampant failing on both sides of the isle. Well written. The problem is the people on each side seem oblivious to their short falls and cry foul about the other. The funny part is, THEY ARE 100% RIGHT.
*sigh* Government manipulating markets isn't socialism. Taxes, tariffs, subsidies, regulations, etc, are not what makes something socialist.
Speaking of reality, the left raised holy hell with the right when the House was hesitant to pass a pork laden bill that was supposed to be aid for the storm stricken northeast. The House finally passed the bill back on January 15th even though it was laden with garbage that had nothing to do with helping the storm stricken victims in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Ten days later, the Senate is sitting on its backside on the very same bill that liberals berated conservatives for failing to speedily pass.
Why is that, my learned friend? You condemn conservatives, yet give a pass to the liberals for the very same thing. Let's see what do they call that? Oh, right... hypocrisy!

Speaking of hypocrisy, seems you are now blaming the Senate for the House distorting the bill the Senate ALREAY PASSED into this current GOP farce. So it is the Democrats fault that they passed too liberal of a bill the first time I guess .. right?
Amazing how easily you substitute your imagination for reality.
Bull, the more you write, the less I see hope for Conservatives. It's not hypocrisy to expose conservatives for the terrorists that they are and avoid taking about Democrates, since I am not promoting Democratic causes.
Get over your sad self, and learn what hypocrisy is.
I knew you despise conservatives, probably because we threaten your utopian liberal perfection. I didn't think your hatred sunk to the level of labeling us terrorists. Perhaps you could provide an example, but since in is patently untrue, I doubt it.
I know what hypocrisy is. You, Hoffman, most liberals, some conservatives, and our present Commander in Chief are experts at it.
Hypocrisy is trying to pass a relief bill for needy Americans and filling it with pork for a new roof for the Smithsonian and fish hatcheries in Alaska.
Hypocrisy is ridiculing Mitt Romney for changing a campaign stop to a relief effort while our President flies around with a Republican Governor promising aid that has still not reached those in desperate need.
Hypocrisy is looking a woman in the eye and telling your head of FEMA to cut through the red tape to help her... and the help has still not arrived.
Hypocrisy is flying off to sunny Hawaii in Air Force One for a family vacation while thousands of the taxpayers who fund such trips are freezing in Manhattan because Barak Obama hasn't kept his promises.
Hypocrisy is promising answers from FEMA in fifteen minutes and not holding the President's administration responsible for doing their jobs.
Hypocrisy is blaming the prior administration for security lapses that occurred on this President's watch. If, as claimed, there were insufficient funds for proper security, then pull our diplomats out of countries where security is inadequate to guarantee their safety.
Hypocrisy is going after law abiding American gun owners with ridiculous restrictions and ignoring the real causes of firearms violence - the criminals and the mentally ill.
Hypocrisy is calling conservatives terrorists when there is absolutely no proof to validate such claims.
Get over yourself, and learn what the truth is.

I'll tell you what is hypocritical: A guy trying to lecture people on hypocrisy that has no idea what the word means! CLASSIC!!!
Maybe this is why Bull153 has such a MAJOR problem with hypocrisy: he has no idea what it is! The majority of his listing of "hypocrisy" are just simply things he does not agree politically with and not at all instances of hypocrisy.
- Not hypocrisy. Not even close. What does the Smithsonian have to do with being hypocritical about relief?
- Not hypocrisy. Especially since the CONGRESS and not the President are in-charge of dispersing funds.
- Not hypocrisy. Especially since it actually happened and FEMA red-tape was cut for Sandy victims.
- Not hypocrisy. Again, CONGRESS is in-charge of money. NOT THE PRESIDENT!
- I don't even know what you are taling about in that point about fifteen minuets.
- Not hypocrisy to tell the truth.
- Again, not hypocrisy to enforce gun laws.
- Not hypocrisy to call people who threaten to violently overthrow the government terrorists.
Really, Bull153 should probably try and understand what hypocrisy actually is before he goes around WRONGLY claiming everything under the sun he disagrees with is "hypocrisy."
