Or we do hear this sort of language every Presidential election cycle:

"Let's give America the kind of comeback that New Hampshire has just given me"

"But always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change"

And nothing ever comes of it?

I suspect opebo will have something to say about this...

Yes.

We also always have a hopeful, outsider Democrat who's going to change the system, bring honesty and transparency to politics, get rid of corruption and ingratiate us to the entire world through his good deeds.

And he always loses.

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

Jimmy Carter was an 'outsider' Democrat. So was Bill Clinton. George W. Bush was an 'outsider' Republican when he won. Al Gore was the 'insider'. Therefore, Gore was obviously corrupt and unprincipled and Bush was obviously homey and pure. LOL.

How somebody who was a governor, the brother of a governor, the grandson of a senator and the son of a President managed to convince anyone that he was an outsider is one of the great mysteries of all time.

No more mysterious than the way he bamboozled voters into thinking he was a compassionate conservative who would work and play nice with Democrats.
