Medved: Democrat Delusions and Their Dire Prospects

As Democrats try to regroup from their disastrous performance in recent elections, they delude themselves on two crucial points:

•    First, they blame their losses on a uniquely unpopular presidential candidate, despite the fact that Hillary Clinton is hardly alone among recent Democratic nominees in her inability to connect with the public. In the last thirteen presidential contests, going back 48 years, Barack Obama is the only Democrat who reached 51 percent of the popular vote—and he did it twice.

•    And liberals also fool themselves if they think there’s another Obama waiting in the wings: The current Democratic bench is shockingly weak. Elizabeth Warren, Tim Kaine, Andrew Cuomo or even the aging Joe Biden hardly look like solid bets to revitalize a party.

Conservatives Increasingly See Hope and Opportunities with Trump

From the story:  Trump could come into office with around 117 judicial vacancies to fill, and unlike Obama in his first term, will need only 51 votes in the Senate to confirm his nominees. Democrats eliminated filibusters for most federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments in 2013. Now only a simple majority, rather than 60 votes, is required to advance a nominee (The Hill). Harry Reid inadvertently helped (Washington Times).    Meanwhile, conservatives continue to see hope in the Trump cabinet.  From John Fund:  …perhaps the biggest role is being played by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank that played a major role in Ronald Reagan’s transition in 1981. Back then, its 1,100-page book of policy analysis, Mandate for Leadership, offered specific recommendations on policy, budget, and administrative action for all Cabinet departments, as well as advice on agencies staffed by political appointees. Reagan gave a copy of the book to each member of his Cabinet at their first meeting. Heritage boasts the 60 percent of its recommendations became reality in some form during Reagan’s tenure (National Review).

Mohler: A Chance For Choice

There is no issue more laden with worldview significance than the issue of education—and the recent announcement of President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos to be the new Secretary of Education brings this to light.

On one side of the aisle, the New York Times bemoans the appointment, implying very directly that there should be an unimpeded flow of taxpayer money to the public schools where those monies should be spent and the schools should be run according to an elite of educators and especially according to the dictates of the teachers’ unions.

In contrast to what the New York Times sees as a great threat, The Wall Street Journal, sees a significant sign of promise—the promise of genuine reform.

DeVos is a long-time advocate of charter schools and vouchers and ought to make a big difference in her role as Secretary of Education.

We wish her well.
