Michael Medved: Dem’s Gloom May Seal Their Doom

Opioid

The Democrats used to bill themselves as the party of unshakable optimism with jaunty, confident presidents like FDR or JFK, or the “Man from Hope” himself, Bill Clinton. But a new Pew Research study shows the party of “Happy Days Are Here Again” and “High Hopes” is now the party of “Eve of Destruction.”

The percentage of Democrats who say they feel “little or no confidence in the country’s future” nearly tripled in the past two years—from just 12 percent to 34 percent. Meanwhile, Republican spirits have soared—with 59 percent expressing “a lot of confidence” in America’s future—up 19 points since Trump’s election.

In politics, optimism generates energy and attracts votes while panic and negativity tend to repel the electorate. In every presidential race in the last 90 years, the more cheerful, positive, ebullient candidate has prevailed. That suggests the Democrats’ current gloom will only serve to seal their own doom.

Comey Firing Leads to Bad Week for Media

As they struggled to get several stories straight (Circa). An entertaining look at the Democratic flip-flops on Comey (Townhall).   From Bob Woodward on the Watergate comparisons: “This is not yet Watergate. Not a clear crime. On the Russian issue Senator Warner and others have said there are a thousand questions and they should be answered. But there’s no evidence that President Trump, at this point, was somehow involved in collusion here” (Mediaite). Another story notes “Associates of fired FBI Director James Comey believe that the former director’s first comments on his termination would likely come in an open session before Congress, ABC News has learned” (ABC News). From Byron York: …as the Russia-Trump controversy festers, there are signs of growing impatience with the secrecy. Some lawmakers — among them the Republican chairman and the Democratic ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee — are pushing the FBI and other agencies involved to let Congress know what they are doing. In particular, lawmakers want to see evidence — if there is any — to show why the investigation is focusing not just on Russian misdeeds — there’s no doubt there are plenty of those to investigate — but on Trump campaign figures, and possibly on the president himself (Washington Examiner). The problem with a special prosecutor (PJ Media). From Kimberly Strassel: The FBI head was so good at portraying himself as Washington’s last Boy Scout—the only person who ever did the right thing—that few noticed his repeated refusal to do the right thing. Mr. Comey might still have a job if, on any number of occasions, he’d acknowledged his own conflicts and stepped back (WSJ).

Hewitt: Media Hysteria Over Comey

U.S. Senate

President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey.

No, this isn’t comparable to Nixon’s infamous “Saturday Night Massacre” of Watergate fame. There are no tapes, no subpoenas for presidential documents, no resignations from the Justice Department, but instead recommendations from the Justice Department. In short, the overwrought media has toppled into hysteria again.

This is, simply, the rightful determination by the president that he no longer had confidence in James Comey, supplemented by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s recommendation that Director Comey should not have publicly discussed the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Agree or disagree with that decision by Comey not to prosecute Secretary Clinton, that kind of decision-making is not what the FBI does. Ever.

So President Trump on the advice of Rod Rosenstein and on his own gut decided it was time for James Comey to go.

Mark Davis: After Comey

Comey

Reactions to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey are falling along predictable lines. There’s a strain of conservative comments that this was overdue, even though his late October re-opening of the Hillary Clinton e-mail case may have contributed to Trump’s win in November.

That’s the recently expressed belief of Hillary herself, but now her political allies cry foul at Comey’s dismissal. Why: With the election over, the left had only one wish for Comey’s FBI—that he would one day emerge with evidence to prop up the currently empty suspicions about a Trump-Russia connection.

But Comey was damaged goods.

An FBI Director should avoid becoming the focus of every story about what the Bureau does and does not do. Comey’s inability to do that leads to the bottom line:

He had it coming.

What the nation needs now and what President Trump should provide quickly is a new director—someone with impeccable credentials—who can get on with the business of the Bureau.
