    And Bannon is positively erudite compared to Trump. Frightening.

    I didn’t get far in this one. Shut it off after John Podhoretz said that Trump didn’t measure up to Bush because Trump does not yet have accomplishments like No Child Left Behind to his credit.

    John is just never going to get it, is he?

    As much as I don’t like Trump, I understand the desperation of voters turning to him when mainstream conservatism seems irrevocably sunk in this sort of thinking. I’d rather have a buffoonish Trump unable to do anything than a Jeb Bush “accomplishing” yet more Big Government expansion with his own No Child Left Behind – style programs.

    @jclimacus, as nevertrump as I am, that’s an excellent point! There’s a lot I appreciate about W’s character, but actual policy prescriptions were often pretty bad (apart from killing terrorists by the wagon-load). Now if only Congress would step into the vacuum and assume legislative powers.
