Power Line's Paul Mirengoff writes some things concerning the obsessions of former President Trump and Speaker Pelosi that I want to share with you. To me they tend to ring true.
Apparently, Trump wants more attention on the election. Pelosi wants more attention on January 6, 2021 and the period leading up to it.
Most Americans want more attention on the present and future, and most rational Republicans want more attention on Joe Biden’s presidency. But Trump can’t get past the 2020 election and Pelosi wants to divert attention from Biden.
My hunch is that both obsessions are losing propositions. Pelosi and her caucus won’t be able to avoid defeat in 2022 by harping on early January 2021. And if Trump seeks the GOP nomination in 2024, harping on the 2020 election, assuming he’s still doing so, will hinder his campaign.
Both Trump and Pelosi have made their points, Trump's that the election was somewhat hinky, and Pelosi's that folks shouldn't mob the capitol. Continuing to harp on these points makes the 'harpists' look bad, makes them boring.
Both should be focused on our national future, what we need and what should be done. Neither seems to want to do that, suggesting both are people of the past who need to step aside.
