Peggy Noonan blasts today’s pathetic Republican Party. She’s not saying anything new. She just has a way with words, and her essay sums up the problems nicely.
These problems, however, have been apparent for years, and even Peggy has been late to the party. In Kansas in 2006, old Republicans bolted from the party and won seats as Democrats.
The Republicans deserve to get crushed in the fall. If that happens, it will be the best possible result for the party (and the country).
Obama slams McCain over Hamas comment
Obama is gearing up for the fall, as he goes after McCain regarding Hamas.
Obama said he was offended when McCain said last month, “It’s very clear who Hamas wants to be the next president.”
“I think it’s disappointing because John McCain always says, ‘Well, I’m not going to run that kind of politics,’ and then to engage in that kind of smear I think is unfortunate, particularly since my policy on Hamas has been no different than his,” Obama said.
“And so for him to toss out comments like that, I think, is an example of him losing his bearings as he pursues this nomination.”
“Losing his bearings.” I love that line.
