Transcript for The Most Annoying Political Cliches
-- they can down the road the only poll that matters is on Election Day. The border must be secured first common sense solutions. Double down. My least favorite political cliche -- cake they can down the road. I've heard it so many times over and over that's because in during -- -- -- twelve campaign. Paul Ryan was -- comes speech and he would say over and over again. The absolute worst political cliche of all time is when a politician or campaign says the only poll that matters is on Election Day first of all of course as the only poll that matters but more importantly that is a sure fire way of telling -- campaign. Knows it's gonna lose but they can't admit it until Election Day. The border must be secured first the problem that of course is it often comes from people who just don't want immigration reform. And it's an easy excuse. Anytime someone has common sense solutions you can probably -- your ears because it's not going to be exactly what -- -- expecting it to me double down. Politicians who -- trying to commit to something use it. To try to make him seem like we're taking a big gamble on something that's gonna have a big reward and the politicians -- are using it to criticize other politicians. Make it seem like a bad thing so at the same time -- means everything and nothing.
