The Corner

The one and only.

Time to Follow


Just finished watching the House Republicans leaders’ press conference on how they are backing the re-crafted bailout deal, made more palatable by their diligent efforts, and urging GOP members to vote yes. Kudos to them and in particular to Eric Cantor: he is so dang impressive. When you expect your political leaders to step up, and they do, you must reciprocate by following and supporting them — and if you do you’ll still be able to place your head on the pillow with a clear conscience. Conservatives should support them in backing the bailout plan. And then, when that is completed, roll up our sleeves and join Cantor & Co. as they work to craft and enact a broader strategy to improve America’s fiscal health.
