Peter Doocy, son of giggling couch tumor Steve Doocy, proves that stupid is definitely hereditary.

Yet she completely ignores all questions regarding the negative impacts of illegal immigration and other negative issues with Biden's executive orders. So why praise her for one thing? Not to mention, she completely sidestepped the question. Instead of addressing those parts of the laws that are similar, she brings up parts that aren't even in the discussion of being similar except for one item regarding what type of identifications are accepted.

You should try to think critically a little more. Why didn't she acknowledge the actual similarities, of which there are some? All she did was bring up the positives and ignored the negatives. And all that does is ensure the people who can't think critically continue to blindly follow along. She's not wrong about the points she brought up. She's not wrong to say Colorado is more accepting of voters. But instead of own up to the problems that are similar she just ignores them. She's no different than the plethora of people who performed the same role for Trump.

Shame on FoxNews. They sent a stupid person who does not understand the facts or issues to a WH press conference and, predictably, made a fool of himself and the network. 'Stupid' may work at your own network exclusively on your home turf. It does not work when you wander out into general society.

Ha! I'll show this lady. I'll just not show up at these so-called press conferences, and that way she cannot answer my questions, giving me something to complain about with this alleged Biden Administration...

#5 What are you babbling about?

Doocy made a false statement in the form of a question and Psaki schooled him.
The new Georgia voting laws are not the same as Colorado laws, not similar either.
Dems would much prefer Georgia adopt Colorado voting laws. Would you, and if not why not?

So should you. Why are a bunch of republican states suddenly trying to make it harder to vote when there was no problem with voting?

This particular exchange had nothing to do with your whataboutism.

Think critically man. Topic on hand - she clearly didn't side step this. I mean that soft ball he lobbed to her could make a rank amateur look like a home run derby champ. She pointed out how much easier it was to vote in Colorado than Georgia which he described as "very similar" to Georgia. Of course there will be "similarities" - it's a freaking election in the USA. I mean did she have to go down to being 18, a state resident, etc? In fact she addressed major things Colorado's laws that make it easier to vote than Georgia (some of which were were changed recently in Georgia.) Voting day registration? I mean come on, will THAT happen in a Southern State? The 15 pieces of ID to prove who you are in Colorado to 6 in Georgia. Actually inviting 100% of eligible voters to vote by mail vs the limits Georgia is putting in place, etc. Not complaining when 94% of eligible voters voted by mail. She didn't call out the Georgia position on each of those or the other things - but did she really need to at this point? What about Colorado's voting laws has you concerned?

She also pointed out that Georgia's new restriction are built on a lie that Georgia's top elections official and others in the GOP have time and again addressed head on.

#5 - Hummer, doesn't being schooled here on a daily basis get old after awhile? Perhaps you should try reading something other than Reichwing propaganda sites and social medial.

It is a fact that CO is considered the best states in the country for ease of voter access and also considered one of the most secure election states in the country. In 2020, they had the second highest per capita voter participation in the nation, thanks largely to every registered voter getting a mail-in ballot three weeks before election day. High voter participation should be the the goal of every elected official in this country, but the GQP has for decades opposed free and fair elections, preferring instead to choose their voters and make it hard for groups who vote Democratic to vote. In the blue states voters face far fewer hurdles than they do in the red states. Dems want as many eligible voters as possible to participate in every election, because we know that people overwhelmingly like our policy prescriptions. The GQP wants to choose their voters, because they understand that their major policies of giving giant tax breaks to the 1% and big corporations, and white nationalist angst don't win many elections.

Like the Faux Spews audience, the GQP base is dying. They're old, and the GQP knows that their days as a national party are numbered, which is why they've decided that rather than re-work their policies to attract younger voters and voters of color, they'll take a dip in the autocracy mudpit is the next stage in their evolution.

You mean because she tells the truth?

Maybe she should just lie with every answer and then stop holding press conferences when she can't lie well enough, like trump's press secretary did. Is that how you become a "good" press secretary?

Rs have been very open saying that is the only way they can win elections. They know they can not win elections if every eligible voter is allowed to vote.

Colorado also mails voters a sample ballot a month or so before the election. It includes a detailed description of what any initiatives would do with pros and cons of each. So it's not only easy to vote, it's easy to be informed about the vote. I'm not sure which Rs fear more.

Actually, they fear both, pretty much equally.

#20 - We get a statewide Voters Guide in the mail that has all that information, but if it was laid out like the ballot that would make it easier to follow. No, Republicans don't like easy voting or the truth. The GQP schmuck running against Governor Inslee in 2020 didn't even bother to submit a bio for the voter's guide. That's probably because his greatest achievement was to spend the majority of his career as the Police Chief in a one-cop town on the mean streets of sleepy North-Central Washington.

So funny story, the guy took a leave of absence to run for governor, which means that his town had to contract with the local sheriff's office for police services. I guess they found it such a cost savings that after the election was over, his town council told him to find another job. He could have just applied with the county SO, but instead he and the rest of the state GQP pants ------- had a giant hissy fit, claimed that it wasn't fair and it was some kind of Democratic payback conspiracy. North-Central WA is very conservative, and I'm sure every member of the town council that invited the guy to take a hike voted for Dotard, but of course the GQP is the party of white victimhood.

Why can't you just ignore Humtake. From the tenor of his posts he sounds like he's working for one of Trump's boiler room operations. His only job is to keep the drum beat rolling.
