When Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as national security adviser, Bill Kristol purred his satisfaction, "If it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state."
Amid the turmoil of the first month of the Trump administration, with courts blocking his temporary travel ban and his national security adviser resigning after 24 days, the solid partisan divisions in the electorate -- modestly changed in 2016 from what they'd been over the previous two decades -- remain in place.
In a whirling dervish White House press conference, President Trump manhandled the press, piledrived all the fake news and reminded the world why he tore through both political parties and got elected president in the first place.
At first blush, one might think that the Democrats have a decent chance of taking control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm. After all, midterms frequently break against the president’s party, which has lost an average of four seats in the 26 midterms conducted in the era of popular Senate elections (starting with the 1914 midterm).
The resignation of national security advisor Michael Flynn has the anti-Trump media declaring the new administration a "mess," in "turmoil" and thrown into "chaos."
Republicans promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act. But now they are hesitating.
Mike Flynn was right to quit. You don’t lie to the vice president of the United States and let him go out on national television and lie to the American people.
President Trump was right to accept his resignation. Or demand it, depending upon which version you choose to believe.
On the very day President Donald Trump's incentive-based tax and regulatory policies are put in place, former President Barack Obama's war on business will have officially come to an end. No longer will American companies be punished by uncompetitive rates of taxation and unnecessary rules and regulations.
To those who lived through that era that tore us apart in the '60s and '70s, it is starting to look like "deja vu all over again."
The Clash asked once, and now I am too: Should I stay or should I go?
