It would help me if people would use more specific language in the comments when expressing opinion - for example:
"In my opinion X's vote on issue A indicates to me that X cares more about A than B. "
Is a perfectly justifiable statement, while
"X cares more about A than B".
is considerably less so.
Opinions are OK, and I want to hear them. Just try to explicitly identify them as such, and they should be based on evidence where ever appropriate.
