Trump’s negotiating style: Bluster, threaten, retreat, declare victory. The art of the deal.
Thank you. I get it now: the purpose of political cartooning is not to lampoon any silliness that needs lampooning. It is to irritate the enemy. Now it all makes sense.
Repubs are good at messaging. When the recession hit, we’d end up like Greece if we listened to Democrats. Now, if we listen to Democrats we’ll end up like Venezuela. Find a nation with a precarious situation, and that’s who we’ll be if we listen to the Dems. Hey, it works. And the word “liberal” just doesn’t seem to arouse as much animosity as it used to, so the word “socialist” will probably supplant it in the Republican lexicon.
“Let us unify to do my bidding.”
When you try to use a blanket term, you leave a lot uncovered. Expecting that all dems or all repubs think exactly the same thing is the reason we can’t move forward. Do NOT assume to know what I think, and I will do the same for you.
Many years ago, I said that Republicans shouldn’t give GWB any power that they wouldn’t want Hillary Clinton to be able to access. They didn’t listen then; they ain’t listening now.
Unless you’re Israel. Then your spoils are called “disputed territory”.
