by Brad Nelson • Dennis Prager, much like Jonah Goldberg, is undergoing a bit of a liberal transformation — or at least an Establishment Republican one.
Dennis was on the wrong side of the NSA thing. Terribly wrong. And now he’s basically blasted one of the few true conservatives in the Senate in an article at NRO that was otherwise pretty good (Feeling Good vs. Doing Good). But near the end of this article, he gets in a gratuitous shot at Cruz:
Republicans and conservatives achieved nothing — and did themselves substantial harm — when the House passed legislation that demanded the defunding of Obamacare as a condition of further funding the government and perhaps even raising the debt ceiling.
I have not read a convincing argument on behalf of these tactics. But I have read polls showing that the Republican party is held in lower esteem than at any time in its history.
And any Republican who dismisses such polls ought to recall that the polls, not wishful-thinking Republicans, were right in predicting that Obama would win reelection.
So now the man who constantly reminds us that “All wisdom starts with fear of God” would have us be driven by polls. I’m aghast but I guess no longer surprised. Would the last woman or man of conservative integrity please turn out the lights on your way out.
