One response to “Professor Michael Dues on “Framing Arguments for Political Debates” at DGT

  1. Prof. Dues spoke of how to block false Republican frames & then throw (a punch back) in defense of core Democratic values. He gave several examples of arguments about size of government, conservative vs. regressive, family values, and common sense. Questions from the audience were about gun safety, conservative vs. moderate Republicans, the social media announcement by Hillary Clinton for President, who’s the best messenger, lack of logic & empathy by Republicans, the rising # of Independents, message of Ayn Rand, Democratic messages at the national level, and AZ state legislature rejecting federal laws & control. Former legislators Marion Pickens & Phil Lopes in attendance today.
