Fresh faces bring familiar GOP refrain: Dems are too extreme


BY JULIEGRACE BRUFKE AND MIKE LILLIS - 02/07/19 06:00 AM EST

House Republicans are amplifying an old but frequently reliable script as they fight to win back the lower chamber in 2020: Democrats, they contend, are simply too extreme to lead the country.

The argument is hardly new: GOP leaders and campaign operatives have, for decades, attacked Democrats for their liberal positions, particularly in the nearly 20 years that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has led the party.

But the arrival of an enormous new crop of Democratic freshmen — a group that features a handful of outspoken, liberal provocateurs — has only fueled the GOP’s appetite for branding the Democrats as out of touch with the voters they serve.

“The radical Democrats can’t help themselves,” reads a typical subject line in an email blasted out last month by the GOP’s campaign arm.

The Republicans’ messaging campaign encompasses a wide spectrum of policies being promoted by the insurgent liberal wing of the Democratic Party, including efforts to adopt a “Medicare for all” health care system, abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and hike tax rates on high-income earners.

1. They'd be calling St Ronnie an "out of touch liberal"

if he was governing today as he did in the 80s.

4. Limbaugh says this about every day.




Any time a Dem speaks above the din they are labeled extremist.
