    Maybe he's talking about him and the little mouse in his pocket.

    I think he's talking about how you are so partisan that you can use the example of republicans splitting on current issues as a sign that they don't use talking points while somehow ignoring the democrats same split (if not worse split). You have to be blind not to see that.

That's how sad our politics have become.
    They have been trying to destroy Social Security since it's inseption in 1935, there's nothing new here.

    Well...obviously. If Schumer was a Republican, I seriously doubt you'd gone there. It's not that I mind, really, I just thought it ironic and incredibly funny. Still, if you want a flame war, I won't shy away.

    I'm not ignoring anything. It's super funny that, in any other thread, if I were to say that Dems were as fractured or more fractured than the GOP, most of the left leaning posters here would take issue with that, but in this thread it's actually some sort of defense.

    Re: On a Senate Call, a Glimpse of Marching Orders

    I posted this in another thread, thought I would post it here. It's just a history lesson.

    --------------

    I thought this might be interesting to some:

As the tapes have been used in training sessions across the country and mailed to candidates, we have heard a plaintive plea: "I wish I could speak like Newt."...

    Apply these to the opponent, their record, proposals and their party.

    decay... failure (fail)... collapse(ing)... deeper... crisis... urgent(cy)... destructive... destroy... sick... pathetic... lie... liberal... they/them... unionized bureaucracy... "compassion" is not enough... betray... consequences... limit(s)... shallow... traitors... sensationalists...

    endanger... coercion... hypocrisy... radical... threaten... devour... waste... corruption... incompetent... permissive attitudes... destructive... impose... self-serving... greed... ideological... insecure... anti-(issue): flag, family, child, jobs... pessimistic... excuses... intolerant...

    stagnation... welfare... corrupt... selfish... insensitive... status quo... mandate(s)... taxes... spend(ing)... shame... disgrace... punish (poor...)... bizarre... cynicism... cheat... steal... abuse of power... machine... bosses... obsolete... criminal rights... red tape... patronage

    Use the list below to help define your campaign and your vision of public service. These words can help give extra power to your message. In addition, these words help develop the positive side of the contrast you should create with your opponent, giving your community something to vote for!

    share... change... opportunity... legacy... challenge... control... truth... moral... courage... reform... prosperity... crusade... movement... children... family... debate... compete... active(ly)... we/us/our... candid(ly)... humane... pristine... provide...

    liberty... commitment... principle(d)... unique... duty... precious... premise... care(ing)... tough... listen... learn... help... lead... vision... success... empower(ment)... citizen... activist... mobilize... conflict... light... dream... freedom...

    peace... rights... pioneer... proud/pride... building... preserve... pro-(issue): flag, children, environment... reform... workfare... eliminate good-time in prison... strength... choice/choose... fair... protect... confident... incentive... hard work... initiative... common sense... passionate
    Just thought a little history might be interesting.

    Can we dismiss EVERYTHING that's established to be a "talking point"? Can we? Huh, huh? Can we, can we?

    Pretty please?

    Re: On a Senate Call, a Glimpse of Marching Orders

    I'm sure everyone here is aware that this is my particular hobby horse. All this Cognitive Linguistic crap being rammed into everyone's brain all the damn time.

    But here we are again, liberal this conservative that.

    Discussion of this topic is ridiculously taboo. Makes me wonder why.

    Frankly, I'm appalled by the Dems recent adoption of this strategy.

    Now they have decided they need their own propaganda firehose.

    Disgusting.
