Marc Thiessen Sums Up the GOP Midterm Problem in Three Sentences
Conservative Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen said on FOX NEWS last night:
“I think it might have, or maybe it wouldn’t have,” he replied. “There’s a broader issue, which is, think about this. We had the worst inflation in four decades, the worst collapse in real wages in 40 years, the worst crime wave since the 1990s, the worst border crisis in U.S. History. We have Joe Biden, who is the least popular president since Harry Truman – since presidential polling happened – and there wasn’t a red wave.”
The former speechwriter for George W. Bush did not hold back.
“That is a searing indictment of the Republican Party,” he said. “That is a searing indictment of the message that we have been sending to the voters. They’ve looked at all of that, and looked at Republican alternative, and said no thanks. That is–the Republican party needs to do a really deep introspection look in the mirror right now because this is an absolute disaster for the Republican Party, and we need to turn back.”
