The unfortunate reality is that it has devolved into a character debate, as attempted discussions with McG often do. It is an effective tactic and one which he falls back on whenever he is cornered.
Of course it is just a smoke screen that he tries to use in order to deflect away from his own mistakes and errors. Some people fall for it too.
Personally, I'm quite tired of it and I have been for a very long time now.
Look who's talking.
