You keep changing the goal posts here. I didn't ask if you thought Moscow Mitch was effective in causing harm and injury to the already oppressed. I asked for an example of a message that he's promulgated.
And we can argue about the effectiveness Cruz but, quick, name a Senator from Colorado. Or Tennessee. Or the OTHER Senator from Texas, for that matter. You get my point, I'm sure.
I read what you said about Democratic leaders and my point is that political leaders of either party are rarely responsible for messaging that takes hold. We don't have bad messaging because our leaders aren't good at it...neither are the leaders on the other side. We have bad messaging because WE aren't good at it. McConnell and Cruz have what we don't....a base that's willing to grab hold of and repeat the same message over and over and over.
