Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Dem Congressman gets punked in debate by soldier opponent” edition

In NY-20,  Scott Murphy(D) tried lampooning his Republican opponent, retired Army Colonel Chris Gibson(R), over “sending jobs overseas”.  Murphy set his beartrap, then stumbled and fell into it himself:

Murphy also went after Gibson throughout the debate for leaving in place tax loopholes that send jobs overseas, referring to medical device manufacturer C.R. Bard’s choice to expand off-shore because taxes meant investing in upstate New York would cost 41 percent more in taxes.

“We need to make it a little harder to move jobs overseas,” Murphy said, echoing a point he has made in advertisements.

Gibson bristled at the charge. The retired Army colonel from Kinderhook moved from an attentive posture to an excited hunch, saying “now is not the time to raise taxes.” He has previously said he takes this charge personally, and to cheers from the crowd, proclaimed, “the only thing that I’ve shipped overseas in the last few years has been myself and my paratroopers to fight for this country.”

Ouch!  That’s gonna leave a mark, and hopefully, a noticeable one on November 3!
