From Michael Moore:
"'You can say anything you want during a debate and 80 million people hear it,'observed Peter Teeley, press secretary to Vice President Bush. If reporters then document that a candidate spoke untruthfully, 'so what? Maybe 200 people read it or 2,000 or 20,000.'"
– New York Times, November 1, 1984
How many times do these people have telegraph exactly what they're doing before people pay attention?
They admit they don't really care about deficits, that supply side economics is a fraud, that they create their own reality, fact-checking is for suckers and on and on. And yet everyone keeps acting as if they are serious people with sincere intentions.
Republicans admit to being liars in order to get elected all the time. Why doesn't anyone believe them?
