Tom "Dusty Baker of Political Analysis" Friedman wants Bloomberg

Discussion in 'The War Room' started by Deleted member 159002, Feb 15, 2020.

  1. How does this guy still have a platform?

    Kerry was cast an anti-American coward, Obama was cast as a socialist Muslim, Hillary was cast as a criminal. Whoever the Democrats nominate will be demonized by the right. Worrying about the Democrat candidate being "cast as" something negative is foolish because whoever is nominated will be cast as something negative.

    To call Medicare for All "untested" is at best a half-truth. Medicare in the US is already a successful government program, albeit much less generous than what Sanders wants. Single-payer systems with no or low OOP spending have been tested in other countries and without disastrous results.

    I can't think of three bigger cliches than that.

    Has Sanders (and the other Dem candidates) not talked about growing the economy? Or is Bloomberg the only one?

    Sanders says hello.

    The cliches are literally all they got.

    See in there world, if a phrase focus tests well or poorly, you just have to repeat it over and over, and it will work.

    These one trick ponies don't have anything else.

    The shiny veneer of these people being experts in anything that is relevant is quickly eroding.

    Years ago, Friedman wrote a piece while traveling through India.

    He commented on how the Chinese embassy had solar panels on the roof; whereas the American embassy across the street did not. It was an odd way to say "Hey, look. Even China is more green than the USA."

    However, his only research was a simple drive by. He never double checked his information.

    The reality was that neither the Chinese nor the American embassies in New Delhi have solar panels on their roofs. But, the US embassy's housing compound did indeed have such panels.

    But, hey, when you are given a tour around town for free, you will publish whatever your host tells you.

    I’ve got bad news far ya, that’s how politics works. The general public is, let’s just say, uninformed.

    Bloomberg going full Ted Dibiase. If he weren’t spending real money I’d think he were trying to show America that Bernie is right.

    Humans tend to learn over time.

    I bet at one point people accepted their serfdom, and that the king's had a right to rule. And then that changed.

    How about the time when cave people demanded no one leave the cave for fear of danger

    Where’s my medieval conservative meme when I need it

    Obsequious is the word we’re looking for

    See this just shows Trump doesn't know his base.

    His maga hat should have been camo.

    Bernie should probably sell 2020 gaged earings at Bernie sanders.com

    Bet those sold out at Cabela's.

    Put that bad boy on as they jump in their pickup truck, and drive to their apartment in the city.

    That is sooooo pathetic!!

    Could you imagine wearing apparel showing your fanboyism to a politician?!

    I'd put holes in that hat while still wearing it.........

    Owning hunting gear is fine.

    Wearing it as you go in a Starbucks......cringe.

    I hope they vote for Bernie too, but I really laugh at these fake rednecks. If you don't have fucked up hands because you actually work on your property out in the sticks somewhere, it is pathetic.

    Hemp is gonna be huge if I gets through the red tape here in Nebraska. Farmers can make 8x what they do per acre than corn or soybeans.
