I'm not talking Donald here. It's actually legacy-talking head William Kristol.
With the federal government in the midst of its first partial shutdown
in 17 years, Bill Kristol, the neoconservative pundit and founder of the
right-wing Weekly Standard, has a recommendation for the GOP: Do nothing.
Sure. Why not. Bill's not being affected. Just like his regular calls to invade here, there and everywhere. Doesn't affect him.
Well, Kristol gave the GOP pretty good advice on picking Sarah Palin (whom we have thankfully heard little about lately) so why not. And what about Donald on the shutdown?
This suggests that even if a public backlash develops against a shutdown
or potential government default, Republican members may be far more
insulated against those gales than their counterparts were during the
two shutdowns in the winter of 1995 and 1996. Today's GOP legislators,
for the same reason, also may be less sensitive to shifts in public
attitudes that could threaten their party's national image or standing
in more closely contested parts of the country.
Donald didn't write that. Ron Brownstein did. Don writes:
Republicans should stay firm.
I guess he's getting paid by the state of California. And no matter what Don thinks, Sasquatch is real.
