Name Calling
By Mike Harpold

Mr. Barry says President Obama is a communist, and maintains he's not name calling because it's the truth. I disagree. Until he can prove his assertion, Mr. Barry is merely calling names.

Name-calling is the tactic of people who have nothing to say, who are intent on distracting the public from a debate the name caller cannot win. I agree with Mr. Barry's own assessment, name-calling is childish.
