Legislating by "statement" gets you headlines, but it's like having cotton candy for Thanksgiving dinner. Not only is this reflected in the previous three stories (and the very last one of today's Daily Wire), but I hear similar comments from an array of Republican friends, colleagues and acquaintances who continually say things like "the party has left me behind." It was striking how Chairman Reince Priebus 100-page assessment of the 2012 disaster last winter and its recommendations for recovery were largely dismissed by Hoosier GOP lawmakers and leaders. None of them wanted to discuss the report, a few told me they didn't read it, and few have altered policy and political stances. - Brian A. Howey
