Anyone else noticing a pattern forming here?
Via Wichita Eagle:
Off the top of her head, Pat Lehman can’t remember exactly how many Democratic National Conventions she’s been to.
“I’m not sure, seven, probably eight, maybe,” she says with a laugh.
But Lehman, the dean of Kansas Democratic delegates, is dead serious about what she wants her party to accomplish at its gathering in Charlotte, N.C., starting Tuesday. […]
Lehman said Republicans, especially vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, are on track to “dismantle Medicare and Medicaid and every other social program, including education.”
She said education is the only route most Americans can use to improve their lives and “the thought of having our public education system basically devastated, I’m really worried about that.”
Lehman said her biggest concern about the election itself is voter-identification laws that Republicans have pushed through in a number of states, including Kansas.
She said the purpose is to suppress the vote, especially among Democratic-leaning constituencies such as elderly voters. And she scorned the Republicans’ contention that the laws are designed to combat voter fraud.
“It’s like Hitler said, if you’re going to tell a lie, tell a big lie, and if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you,” Lehman said.
