Washington -- In September, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich sat down with the Washington Times -- known amongst the cognoscenti as the "Good Times" --and made me wish he had never left the House of Representatives. Everything he said made perfect sense, including, I presume, an "Excuse me" or two when he sneezed. It is hay fever season after all. He began by saying that Republicans are facing an election season that they cannot afford "to blow." It is "a once-in-a-generation campaign opportunity to tag all congressional Democrats as 'big government socialists.'" And he pointed to their support for President Joe Biden's "$3.5 trillion social welfare spending package" and quickly added "$3 trillion in taxes."

 

"To have an issue of this size," he noted, "involving $3 1/2 trillion in spending and about $3 trillion in taxes, and to have every single Democrat having voted lockstep in favor of it, gives you a weight of argument unlike anything I've seen in recent years." Newt might have said not just in "recent years" but in his lifetime. The Democrats have given the Republicans a tremendous gift, and I cannot see how they will blow it. I doubt they will.

Just last week Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was in town, and he certainly did not blow it. He was here for an American Spectator Gala, and he sat down for an interview with the evening's master of ceremonies, incomparable Grover Norquist of tax cutting fame. The governor was in fighting trim. He is Chairman of the Republican Governors Association, and he said he thought the Republicans could win every race in 2022. His issues? Lower taxes, improved education for the young and school choice -- he mentioned Terry McAuliffe's recent education gaffe repeatedly. Being from Arizona, he is naturally for closed borders. He says Biden has made the border issue a federal issue, and he wants the issue back. After ticking off his desiderata for 2022, he said the Republicans have "the wind at their backs." Doubtless, Newt Gingrich is in agreement. For a certitude, Ducey had the gala audience with him.:snip:

Remember now we are talking about The Republican Party. As in The "Evil party and the Stupid Party I'm a member of the stupid party"?
