Our Failed Political Press
What is the [GQP’s] message and identity (outside of devotion to Trump and “owning the libs”)? Is it really a new working-class party (but one that still pursues big tax cuts for the wealthy)? Is it for limited government (even though it enacted unprecedented spending and deficits during the Trump Era?)
Where will its money come from? (Not only did Adelson pass away, but the Koch network is no longer fully aboard the GOP train. And the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has embraced Biden’s Covid-19 relief plan.)
What happens if Trump doesn’t run in 2024, which is always a possibility?
And here’s maybe the biggest question of all for the GOP: If it takes back control of the federal government — the House, Senate and the White House — how does it govern?
It’s one thing to win majorities in our polarized country, it’s another to know what you want to do with those majorities.
And he’ll have a full panel of GQP apparatchiks on Sunday who will all have talking points to address his questions (none of which, you will note, actually have tangible and actionable answers) and agree that the future looks sunny.
Meanwhile, nothing about the Democrats because they don’t exist in Upchuck’s world.
