QOTD: "If in 2017 the chief executive urges his supporters to “punish our enemies,” what will be the media reaction?

Will the Los Angeles Times object should the next president borrow $6 trillion in his first term? If we have four more years of zero interest, will that policy be deemed reckless and inflationary?

The predictable answer, of course, to all these questions is, again, “It depends.” If a liberal like Hillary Clinton wins, then the same exemptions will almost surely continue, even in the absence of the race card. But if a conservative should be elected, then the old hypocrisy will reappear and we will be treated to the damnation of a Christie, Paul, Rubio, or Cruz as “the worst president ever” or an “amiable dunce” or one of the other sorts of boilerplate disparagement accorded Reagan and the two Bushes." --Victor Davis Hanson

If Christie, Paul, Rubio or Cruz are our only options for 2017 I say bring Hillary on. Let Dems complete the destruction so we can get on with rebuilding.

Two of the above are ineligible, one is a RINO and the other is out in left field. Some choices. If Republicans can't do any better than that list of weaklings we deserve to lose again.
