She knows she’s in a pickle because of her voting record. Putting a few commercials on saying she’s bipartisan is a joke. She’s a tax and spend liberal who has directly let to the highest inflation in 40 years.

Just out of curiosity, how do you explain how the UK has higher inflation than the USA although governed by its Conservative Party for 20 years?

Other countries with right-led governments that have higher inflation rates than the US include India, Germany, Italy, Brasil, and Colombia.

My explanation is that what’s causing inflation is due much more to large global forces than domestic political policies.

And that voting for or against any political party in the US will not affect inflation in any significant way.

Liberals are responsible for inflation because the party elders of the conservatives say so. That’s all it takes.

Don’t expect an explanation, he is just doing as he is told and parroting what he heard his high priest say.

You are probably right.

Still, I am genuinely curious how people handle facts that, inescapably, conflict with their prevailing narratives. That's true for adherents of any narrative, political or otherwise.

And, at the least, it might put a tiny irritant in brains, like sand in an oyster.

That’s the thing about politics. If a factual explanation can’t fit on a bumper sticker, then it’s all liberal college elitist propaganda.
