Trump exposes the GOP’s weakness more than its ignorance
Matt Bai July 19, 2016
To me Matt’s last line says it all about what’s behind the rise of the D’ump (contraction).
” To Wehner, Trump represents the struggle between two competing segments of the party, one enlightened and the other ignorant.
” To me, he represents the decline of parties altogether, and the growing window of opportunity for any protagonist who can hold our attention. “
Of course the Democratic Party would be way ahead if it’s central thrust were re-building high union density (ya know, making union busting a felony — in whatever states were amenable — if somebody would only raise the issue; haven’t heard a whisper from Berni or Warren).
