They've got some long resumes
Says Hillary Clinton has "been in office and in government longer than anybody else running here tonight."
Misrepresenting how the system works
Say President George W. Bush " ‘borrowed’ $1.37 trillion of Social Security surplus revenue to pay for his tax cuts for the rich and his war in Iraq and never paid it back."
Economic record is good, but not perfect
"The economy, by every metric, is better than when I came into office."
Pot calling the kettle black
"Four times, I said, he (John McCain) is a hero, but you know ... people choose selective pieces."
Way more complex than that
Says Chris Christie "vetoed equal pay for women 3 times. He only let the bill pass once it became a damaging campaign issue."
Israel and Mexico have higher rates
"We have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on Earth."
The data doesn't exist
"Hundreds of thousands of (illegal immigrants are) going to state and federal penitentiaries."
Not what the polls say
The Supreme Court’s views "are radically out of step with public opinion" regarding its decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide.
More like 'upper class'
"The party in the White House" is responsible for "a massive tax increase on the middle class."
It happens, in some cases at higher rates
"This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency."
Spending has fallen, but it takes two to tango
The Democrats are "responsible" for "the swift, mindless drawdown of a military that was generations in the making."
Chevy runs in Japan, just not that deep
"When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Japan? It doesn’t exist, folks."
The comparison is strained
Says Bill Clinton "gave a speech in 1996 about Iraq having WMDs" and said "we needed a regime change," even though everyone blamed those things on George W. Bush.
More foggy than not
Says Hillary Clinton's "been very clear where she stands on trade."
1991 is not 2015
If Fox News' presidential debate rules had been in place during the 1992 election, "Bill Clinton wouldn't have been on the stage."
On Clinton, yes; Bush is less clear
"The CEO of Goldman Sachs let his employees know that he’d be just fine with either Bush or Clinton."
