So my short form reaction was tweeted out last night:
POTUS speech was a Bayeux tapestry of half truths, lies, cliches and cringe-inducing bathos.
The long form, well, listen to the four hour broadcast from Thursday via The Hughniverse. A very low point in our history, and one I’ll explore with Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn in hour three of today’s program, and with other guests as well.
My advice to the DC GOP is to stay focused on the agenda you would have otherwise pursued: Killing the Iran deal if it emerges from the shadows, reimposing sanctions on that rogue regime, rebuilding the Pentagon, pursuing immigration reform with a bill Title I of which is a long strong, double-sided fence with a road between the twoo side across at least half of the 2,000 mile U.S.-Mexico border, and Titles II through X contingent upon the completion of the fence, tackle tax reform, and block all judicial nominations. Of course if you can muster enough votes to send good stuff to the president do so, but 60 is a very high number.
The key development of last night: Hillary’s full-throated endorsement of the president’s lawless, unconstitutional action. Noted and certain to be as often referred to as her “what difference does it make” pratfall. James Webb has got to be looking a lot better to a lot of old-fashioned Democrats today who believe in the rule of law, a pro-uniuon party, and a speak softly/big stick military.
