Who Assigns the Democrats' Talking Points, Anyhow?

Dana Mathewson

From AT, via Tammy Bruce -- well, the beginning is from Tammy's contributor "Shifra:"

Pelosi & Schumer Send Identical ‘Shutdown’ Tweets

Chuckles and Nan obviously copied their tweets from the same Dem talking points.

But it would have been much more effective if they had included Tammy’s line: It’s ‘doom and gloom’ with the Shutdown, and we’re all scrambling for grubs and puddle water! 

Note from Tammy:

For politicians this remains a game, and the American people are an irritating side issue. For some reason, the shut down of the government is portrayed as the worst thing that could happen. Really? No one is working without pay, and there is a slight chance some may receive a delayed paycheck, but even that is unlikely.

The howling by politicians as though the shutdown is the end of the world is nonsense, but it is a reminder of how upset they "weren’t" when so many Americans remained out of work for years during the Obama debacle. Bottom line: politicians care only about themselves and the people who help them enjoy the daily party we provide for them with our tax-payer dollars.

I have long wondered about who writes the talking points that keep Democrats reading from the same script. That person – or more likely, persons – evidently issues instructions that the office holder branch and the journalist branch of the Democratic Party mimic in their public statements. But in order to appear slightly authentic, they are supposed to speak extemporaneously and make it appear that they all came up with the phrases-of-the-day spontaneously. This works for interviews with print and television journalists, but the rise of Twitter has introduced new danger of exposure. Now we have proof that the current ostensible leaders of the Democrats’ party are often just actors reading from scripts supplied to them by people hidden from public scrutiny. Christmas Eve saw the presumptive new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi issue a tweet that was identical, word-for-word, to one issued 23 minutes earlier by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer….

It's Christmas Eve and President @realDonaldTrump is plunging the country into chaos. The stock market is tanking and the President is waging a personal war on the Federal Reserve—after he just fired the Secretary of Defense.

And liberals will swear to your face that they are such original, subtle thinkers, and actually expect you to believe it.
