Not really, but Hillary was an essential ally in 2016, too

And? She would have been a much better president than Donald Trump.

How is Nancy Pelosi an “essential ally”? She plays lip service and opposes policies that are actually beneficial to minorities. And then she pulls this “All Lives Matter” garbage again.

I'm a fan of AOC but this does not play well.

This comment sums it up:

Quote :
"Fun fact: You selectively choose whose statements to analyze and how to analyze them. The statement was not made up. It was a mischaracterization of an article someone else published. Will you, for example, analyze Rep. Steve Scalise's flagrantly false statement on / misrepresentation of the graduated income tax?! No?! I understand the utility of fact checkers, but they don't consistently check everyone. It therefore leads to unfair, unbalanced portrayals of one's honesty."

Meanwhile, Republicans have been basing their last four decades of fiscal policy on literal napkin math. They just passed a multi-trillion dollar tax cut with the demonstrably false justification of "it will pay for itself". Nah, fuck that noise, Anderson Cooper is a tool for even asking her that shit.

All observations about the inequality of the fact checking are valid.

Did we stop fact checking some others so harshly because they lie constantly?

Surprising from a democratic majority board of commissioners in Wake County.

They purchased it below market price in an area without many parks, would have been a great addition for parks considering that most of the walking trails are already done

Having Pelosi and Schumer respond to Trump tonight is dumb.

The Democrats should trot someone else out who can speak well. Someone that Fox News hasn’t made up a bunch of shit about yet. Then when they start to focus on said speaker, the next time there’s a response, the Dems switch to yet another new person. Just keep going so they have to expand out from their usual circle of targets until they can’t keep up with who the “new threat to civilization” is.

i'm inclined to agree but they did a good job dunking on trump when they had that televised meeting, so maybe they won't suck at this?

He pretty much did that to himself, anyone with a brain could have dunked on him

Pelosi is a boring speaker and Schumer is basically a Republican. Neither will say anything truly meaningful.

Hopefully they ask why Mitch McConnell has stopped showing up for work.

I don't agree with their general views of what the party platform should but but they are the leaders of the party and should speak for the party. Especially since neither is making a run for President, because just about anyone else could be seen as endorsing or propping up a candidate.

They also aren't going out there to win over Fox News viewers, so I'm not sure what that has to do with anything.

0% of the opposition is going to think, "oh since they aren't running for president we should listen to them and consider their arguments"

literally no one

There really shouldn't be anything particularly political or partisan about their response. "Everything he just said was a lie, it wasn't a crisis when his party controlled Congress, and Mexico was supposed to pay for it.". I suppose they could get into the need for broader immigration reform, but I don't really see the point while the WH and Senate are still controlled by Republicans.

I don't think anyone is going to listen to anyone anyway. These rebuttal speeches are dumb, even after State of the Union addresses and especially now. I'm just saying there's an assumption that whoever gets sent out there is usually a candidate for the next election cycle, and I'm fine with the party saving their cards.

Bernie is also going to do his own livestream response after the official democratic statement is over.

^^^ I wouldn't try to refute or list his lies. I wouldn't even spend much time refuting the idea of a wall. Just list the facts of the situation and point out how they all point to the great dealmaker's failure to deliver a wall--or even make progress--after two years with a friendly Congress.

I'd also harp on McConnell's lack of leadership in the Senate. A lot.

Probably a little dumbfounded by Trump’s performance.

But ya, they sucked too.

Maybe should have been paying attention to her own campaign instead of owning the Libs.

Come on, it was for one month, it seems like it was an honest mistake, and I seriously doubt she had anything to do with the day-to-day running of her campaign. Her campaign manager on the other hand, might need to be looking for a new job.

Interesting column about how Dems could make rural headway by embracing aggressive anti trust legislation and just generally working to reduce the power of massive companies (in general, agriculture was the focus). Also a little bit about how the Obama administration dropped the ball on this.
