Tammy Bruce: Anti-Trump Agenda in Congress Laying Waste to the Party of Lincoln and Reagan
By Tammy Bruce, The Washington Times
Isn’t it time the president stage an intervention to save Congress from itself? As leader of the Republican Party, the president has every right, even a duty, to intervene when it becomes clear his own party leadership is not only obstructing the will of the people, but is doing damage to the country.
While congressional leadership positions are voted on by party members in Congress, the president can use his significant influence and weigh in both publicly and privately about his own party’s leadership, and whether it’s time for a change.
Considering what the public thinks about Congress, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s own plunging approval rating in Kentucky, the president’s arguments for new congressional leadership should not be a hard sell.
