Lots to think about in Bret Stephens’ article. Those of you familiar with Bret might realize that he’s a former Republican and now never-Trumper.
Here’s my favorite point:
**"While they’re at it, they might try to observe Rule No. 2: Stop predicting imminent disaster. The story of the Trump presidency so far isn’t catastrophe. It’s corrosion — of our political institutions, civic morals, global relationships and democratic values.
Democrats can make a successful run against the corrosion, just as George W. Bush did in a prosperous age with his promise to restore “honor and dignity” to the White House after the scandals of the Clinton years. But they’re not going to do it by repeatedly forecasting a stock market meltdown, worldwide depression, or global thermonuclear war — and then wondering why they aren’t believed."**
I personally haven’t heard as much of this imminent disaster prediction as Bret talks about. But I do think that running against the “corrosion” of Trump and being more about honor and dignity would help anyone who runs against Trump. I think that’s the best way to attack him.
