    Re: Republican Hypocracies

    I understand that, but both by economic definition and by the argument of the "Buy American" crowd it has to be true that reducing the supply of goods available increases the price.

    Re: Republican Hypocracies

    This is your thread, so I don't want to drag it too far off course. But I'm genuinely curious what rationale you have for the "buy American" strategy.

    1) Do you have evidence that she had the Cairo Intelligence points at the time of her statement? It is important because she couldn't...

    And? Is your defense of this that the Administration made a false claim at first? I'm not sure them attempting to say something they knew to be false is praiseworthy.

    If that claim was retracted, fair enough, but then your underlying claim of hypocrisy loses support because you used the assumption that she was correct as evidence of Republican Hypocrisy.

    You are correct, it doesn't mean it didn't happen, it just means that your argument based on the premise that it did is unfounded. That it is an emotional, not a rational belief, right?
