    This characterization seems familiar — did you borrow it from Brewers255 assessment of David Hogg? Hannity talking points? Or are these original?

    She either believes all this stuff and is beyond stupid or she is lying. Which is it?

    All mine?


    “Read my lips...”

    Meaning what? Bush thought he didn't have to raise taxes. He was wrong. Ross Perot helped him pay for it.

    Probably a combination of both. You can create a massive government and welfare state, it doesn't mean it'll work.

    Trump Jr is shaking in his boots. He’s going after AOC and hoping that people ignore his own terrible conduct including conspiracy against the United States.

    No. Like you said, he was making a promise he knew he couldn’t keep (he was VP — he knew damn well what Gramm-Rudman-Hollings meant with respect to a deficit).

    “‘Read my lips...’ was written by leading speechwriter Peggy Noonan, with Jack Kemp having suggested the basic idea. Including the line caused some controversy, as some Bush advisers felt the language was too strong. The most prominent critic was economic adviser Richard Darman, who crossed the phrase out on an initial draft calling it ‘stupid and dangerous.’”

    He was lying. Then he paid for it (he lost to Bill Clinton).

    My god you guys are so triggered by her. So quick to attack someone who is only pushing positive change for people in need.

    You know for sure new this?

    You know for sure that there was no wheeling and dealing behind the scenes that he based his statement on.

    You know all this?

    And yes, he lost to Clinton, bur he lost because of Perot.

    I have no problem talking about her policies:



    They're ridiculous.
    Which ones?

    The one about the economy that supports our Veteran's? The one about ending the war on drugs, demilitarizing police and stopping for profit incarceration? Paid family and sick leave?

    They're all ridiculous? They actually seem far tamer than I thought. Based on conservatives panic, I fully expected her to have Hunger Game style executions of the wealthy and white people, and for all white people to pay $1,000 a month in minority reparations. Honestly, these seem fairly boring compared to the sensationalism I've been seeing around here.

    She thinks everything should be provided by the government. That's not me exaggerating her stances either. She's currently going off about a living wage for people that work in dc. Give me a break.

    The part that made me laugh was housing as a human right and they're just gonna be "affordable".

    I like the clean campaign finance one though. Funny thing is once the money starts coming in these types of politicians tend to stop prioritizing that one.
