You missed the point again. When your own party calls for you to be expelled it is more than just little white lies or embellishment. You have crossed a major line when your own party calls for it.

No, you missed the point. His own party called on him to resign because a massive deal was made about his lies in the media. The same cannot be said for other politicians, including the sitting president. The double standard in how these stories are reported is my point. I specifically said that the types of lies Santos made are the same as what Biden did and does. Just fabricates stories and accomplishments about himself, his family, etc. Biden's lies have also affected others more negatively than Santos', like the drunk driver claims, which he continued to make after apologizing somewhat for them.

So Trump wasn't so bad after all...  ;)

All he had was:
Or do you really mean once one crosses their own party it's unacceptable...
No, Trump was over the line and they did nothing. This guy must be in the next stratosphere.

That is your spin on it.
McCarthy is sticking by him with all the media so your point was just invalidated!  :P

Ok, disprove my spin. Show me the media scrutiny on Biden's many, many, false claims. And there has been reporting on some of them, like the Mandela and drunk driver ones, but weirdly those were never spoken about in a way that disqualifies him. Show me the scrutiny on Julia Salazar who faked being Jewish and wasn't removed as a candidate by the Dems *before* her election. Show me the scrutiny on Kamala Harris, etc.
McCarthy is sticking by him with all the media so your point was just invalidated!  :P

The fact that it was a question asked of McCarthy and not of Dems about their liars is my point, not a disproof.

Well otherwise he wouldn't be included in this anyhow.
I have no problem with that.
The big difference here is that his home state R party is calling for it.

It seems you can never make different points without someone pretending you are making the same point. Oh wait that just happens to me. I wonder why, NOT!!!  :)

This was a joke but most of the discussion here (forums) follows the same logic.

CV: Should we expel Santos?
Y57: Sure, but the fact that this is a question reveals a double standard
CV: No double standard, the fact that his own party wants him out must mean his lies are "a different stratosphere"
Y57: Please detail how his lies are so different. I contend they are in the same vein as Biden's, and the fact that his own party wants him out is proof of the double standard.
CV: Here is how Santos is different: People are misrepresenting my points!

I already pointed out how it is different but like always you just dismiss it.

His own state party is calling for his head. This is unheard of. This shows he went way over the line.

Now you don't have to accept that explanation, but can you please stop with the constant BS that I didn't explain why?

Youíre explaining how it *looks* different but not what actually distinguishes the lie. His point is that the reason it *looks* different is because of the angle of the media, not because itís inherently distinguishable.

IMHO his lies were worse than Bidenís as his entire election was likely predicated on total falsehoods.

I responded to that. A few times. Not least in the very post you are responding to.

I understand he thinks it is because of the media and I disagree. I don't have an issue with that.

If D's call for Bidens impeachment over these TS files you can bet the house, there is something major.

You did not give any explanation as to why his lies are more egregious. You gave a sign or proof that they must be more egregious.
