55. Oh, you lose points for the faked folksiness designed to lump (real) Democrats in with Tea Baggers.

 

Are you also saying that the Democrats in Congress who voted against it are Tea Baggers, too? Although, come to think of it, I do believe I read somewhere that Pelosi was figuring out who could safely vote yes without worrying about their ass, er, seat, and who needed to vote no in order to appease their constituents. I have the DINOs in Florida figured out.

I am curious, though - why are you so doggedly determined to talk up the TPP and to denigrate those who are "agin" it? It is going to be greased into law, and Obama is not running again, so any dissatisfaction with him is meaningless, unless we were going to all be asked to chip in for a library or parting gift or something. Why bother putting so much lipstick on a pig? The corporations don't have wittle feelings to hurt; they could care less. And I have been assured that there are so few anti-TPP people that we are no real threat. And hey, once the TPP is revealed in all of its awful and unchangeable majesty, won't we see how fantastically good it is going to be for actual people? People who are not corporations? Do we dissenters have that much influence? And, if this is so secret, who are you to be telling us that it is going to be just swell? Do you worry that we are unhappy? And why are people in Europe just as angry about the TTIP? Are they Tea Baggers, too? Wow!

Because, you know, I sincerely doubt you have changed a single mind, or even caused a second of doubt. There is no reason to take your word for it.
