The obvious lesson of Roy Moore’s election loss is that angry populism fueled by resentment of ‘elites’ is not the basis for a political movement.
Just like their House colleagues, it seems GOP senators are incapable of putting out a clean and principled bill. Every good idea they present is usually followed by a couple of bad ones.
Donald Trump might obliterate the GOP’s future prospects. Despite wishful thinking, Republican losses in Virginia yesterday do not prove that contention.
The amount of effort that went into this is huge. Everything went Democrats’ way in the 2017 election in Virginia.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’s backing establishment politicos because that’s how to keep ‘a governing majority.’ What good has that been?
You may have never heard of Robert Kagan or Max Boot, but they are hugely influential to the people you vote for.
Roy Moore’s victory in the Alabama special election and the Senate’s failed effort to repeal Obamacare point to a GOP whose voters are losing patience.
While this race may not have been much of a referendum on President Trump, there was a bit of a referendum on Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and what he represents to the Republican voter.
Former Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is back doing what she does best: another work of fiction.
This is the stage some of us have been waiting for: when Trump tacks back to the Left, makes nice with Democrats, and sells out his core supporters.
President Trump can come back and win a smashing victory again if he promotes his signature issues from last year, trade above all. He should also weaponize tax reform against his enemies.
No matter how red West Virginia may appear on a presidential map, any campaign against Joe Manchin will be a daunting task. Patrick Morrisey says he’s up to it.
Here’s a simpler, cleaner solution: Preserving the status quo on Medicaid expansion in exchange for full repeal of Obamacare’s insurance regulations at the federal level.
Anti-Trumpers still keep throwing conservatives under the bus to maintain the status quo, just as they’ve often done (remember the Tea Party).
‘This is a failure that is at the core of the Republican experience in the last several years and it depends on the fact that they chose to lie.’
If you believed that your political party embodied the ideas that helped make the lives of your fellow Americans better and freer, you might stick around to try and save it.
If you hate President Trump for his offenses against good government, have the decency to admit that Mike Pence is clearly much better.
An unwillingness to let go will lead to gridlock and inaction as the majority party is unable to resolve its internal disputes yet also unwilling to advance the legislative process.
Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s special election is a repeat lesson for Democrats. In 2014 they flooded Texas with outsider cash, but Wendy Davis lost in a landslide.
I’m fed up with the anti-anti-anti-Trumpers, so now I’m anti-anti-anti-anti-Trump. Welcome to the tangled web of stupid partisan bickering in 2017.
