Bill Kristol to Whiny GOPers: “Suck It Up” And Embrace Opportunities As Opposition Party

reagan thumbs up

I got a sneak preview of Bill Kristol’s upcoming editorial for the Weekly Standard, and it’s exactly the bracing, challenging and inspiring message Republicans need to hear as they watch President Obama re-take the throne sworn in for his second term.

I got him to preview a bit of it for the Weekly Standard podcast (click here to listen), reminding Republicans that they’ve been in worse political spots in the past, and that Ronald Reagan used the out-of-power years of the late ’70s to prepare and build for what would become the “Reagan Revolution.”

It’s great stuff. Click, listen and then share it with a conservative friend who needs a boost.

And remember what Franklin said: “If we don’t hang together, we shall surely hang separately.”

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
