    OC is discussing things in general, which is accurate. You are being willfully ignorant to the generalities and aiming your focus ONLY towards the left. This is why people are confronting you... and why people ALWAYS confront you. Like I always tell you. Don't like it? Don't do it.

    I see no reason to re word what OC has said quite correctly...Here, I will re post it for you, now read slowly....

    Really? It is uncommon to use for example the argument that we have to do something so that the country is still great for our kids(or some variation thereof)?

    The only way to make that point is to use your children? Nah....not feelin' it....Sorry.

    Oh, BTW, a little different context here but similar, when Bush would use 9/11 in speeches to evoke emotion in forwarding his policies like the patriot act, libs had a virtual cow! Oh the things said....I remember. Do you?

    The other side of that coin is that if you have to drag your kids into a number of policy planks to shield your ideas with identity politics and it comes to the notice of Associated Press (arguably fairly friendly to the current President's policies), maybe its being over used. I dont think that any of the modern Presidents have particularly used their children as anecdotal evidence for policy decisions, although since you seem so strident about it being done, you could provide some evidence?

    Going to repeat my points:
    All candidates do it on the campaign trail. Its a given.
    Its not evil, its just intellectually dishonest.
    I dont think other Presidents have used this particular tactic overly much, I could be mistaken but I dont remember it.
    Its identity politics instead of idea politics.

    Liberal context twisters need not apply.

    Of course you can't see it.

    You can show what I said on the topic? Because I don't give a **** what others say, I am not responsible for their words.

    If we do not stop deficit spending, our kids will get stuck with the bill. That is just one example.

    You really think the two are the same?



    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Why no, ofcourse not....liberals would never offer anything but the unbiased, unmitigated truth. In fact, all we need in this country is one infallible true democrat party. One that can never be questioned even when it fails. One that hold the principle of no corporations, no religion, no wealth inequality for anyone ever....And a unicorn in the back yard for the kiddies, if we don't abort them first.
