The defense includes “Charlottesville was good Trump”— Nicolle Wallace (@NicolleDWallace) February 12, 2021
This is a huge win for Republicans.
“Washington’s most powerful trade group is having a political identity crisis.
Over the past month, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has taken a series of steps that have enraged its traditional Republican allies. It applauded much of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan to Covid relief bill; cheered Biden’s decision to rejoin the Paris climate agreement; backed the former leader of the liberal Center of American Progress, Neera Tanden, for Office of Management and Budget director; and expressed openness to raising the minimum wage, though not to $15 an hour. …
The Chamber’s willingness to work with Biden follows an often rocky relationship with Trump. It championed Trump’s tax cuts and deregulation, but recoiled at the president’s protectionist instincts and his castigation of tech companies. The Chamber also joined with the National Association of Manufacturers and other trade groups to sue the Trump administration over its executive orders on immigration and bashed Trump’s moves on drug pricing. …”
The Democrats are transforming into the old Republican Party.
They are becoming the party of White upper middle class professionals, globalists, neoliberal oligarchs, woke scolds, wealthy suburbanites, Woke Capital, Big Tech, Wall Street, etc. The Democratic Party as a whole is being gentrified by PMCs like Washington, DC which they want to become a state.
It is only a matter of time before all of these new Democrats start clamoring for the unpopular things they pushed for as Republicans like tax cuts, deregulation, free trade, entitlement reform, endless wars and so on while calling everyone else a “racist” who is still in the Republican Party. Max Boot who was one of the biggest chickenhawks who pushed for the Iraq War is writing for The Washington Post. Nicolle Wallace who was Jeb Bush’s press secretary is now a MSNBC television host like Joe Scarborough.
