Opportunity or Cronyism?
Remember last year when progressives were declaring victory? My Foundry piece this week explains how conservatives pushed back, and won:
Last year, many in the consulting class warned America had turned a corner, and they urged conservatives to moderate their principles in pursuit of electoral victory.
After a year of policy defeats on guns, amnesty and cap-and-trade, President Obama’s former press secretary Robert Gibbs declared 2013 the “lost year for the president.” While our President may be lost and rudderless, the country is not without visionary leaders.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) did not bother responding to the President’s liberal laundry list; rather he put forth an unapologetically conservative and positive agenda that spoke to “those Americans who may feel they have been forgotten by both political parties.”
