A ThinkProgress thread from yesterday list the following eleven lies expected to be trotted out during tomorrow’s Republican 2016 Presidential Candidate debate:
“[Obamacare] has failed to accomplish its prime objective: Containing health care costs.” (Piyush “Bobby” Jindal)
“We need a president who will finally act to secure the border after decades of failed leadership in Washington, D.C.” (Rick Perry)
“Planned Parenthood is possibly selling the body parts of the babies it has aborted.” (Ted Cruz)
“The satellite data demonstrate that there has been no significant warming whatsoever for 17 years.” (Cruz, Trump, Scott Walker)
“Our biggest threat [in this country] is radical Islamic terrorism.” (Walker, Jindal)
“Obama’s plan should be called the Costly Power Plan because it will cost hard-working Americans jobs and raise their energy rates.” (Walker)
“[Common Core is] a scheme to drive education curriculum from Washington, D.C.” (Jindal, Cruz, Huckabee)
“This is not a good deal, but a recipe for disaster and the first fateful step toward a frenzied nuclear arms race in the Middle East.” (Ben Carson, Chris Christie)
“Instead of a safety net to cushion our occasional falls, they have built a spider web that traps people in perpetual dependence.” (JE Bush, Carson)
“It’s sad to see the Democrats take a horrific crime and try to use it as an excuse, not to go after people with serious mental illness or people who are repeat felons or criminals, but instead try to use it as an excuse to take away Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.” (Cruz, Perry)
“Instead of fighting over the minimum wage, why don’t we focus on solutions that help every American earn his or her maximum wage.” (Huckabee, Bush, Christie)
I expect that there will be a whole lot more bullshit, dog-whistle, chest-beating, wink-wink lines from this gaggle. What other talking-point lines do YOU expect to hear from each of them?
This is our daily Open Thread–have fun!
