Republicans really are the stupid party. They have learned nothing. Democrats are marching in the street every weekend, emboldened by every obstruction. Until Republicans fight back, it will only escalate.
The only way for the GOP to get back on track and start winning, which they should be doing because they control everything, is to humiliate and demoralize the Democrats.
Right now, every single time President Trump proposes something, Democrats resist it and send out a fundraising pitch to reward their resistance.
To stop this, the GOP must publicly make Democrats fold. The only way to do that is to shut down the government.
The President and Republicans must draw a line in the sand they know Democrats intend to cross. Then let the Democrats shut down the government.
The GOP must then make the Democrats fold. The President must use his bully pulpit to savage them. The GOP must hold firm. And they must keep the government closed until the Democrats cave.
That is the only way to dampen the enthusiasm and curb the incessant marching of “The Resistance.”
