Let Them Fight, Literally

Did you tune into the GOP fight club this week? You better believe I did. McCarthy is schoolyard bullying former allies in the hallways of Congress. And Markwayne Mullin tried to throw down during a Senate hearing. 

Embarrassing for them. Hilarious for everyone watching at home. 

Now, as much entertainment and sheer joy I’m getting from watching the clown caucus descend into violent mayhem, there’s an important takeaway that will impact the 2024 election. 

The GOP, with all its crazed infighting and pseudo-masculine posturing, continues to prove that they have no mandate and no desire to govern this country. None.

The majority of the voting public is smart. They know MAGA is just here to burn it all down. While GOP members of Congress auditioned for WWE and the fake presidential candidates sleepwalked through that boring and low-energy debate, President Biden showed the country what real leadership looks like. 

He stood next to President Xi and called him a dictator. He didn’t quote them like Trump. He stood up for American values. 

It wasn’t just words, it was action. 

Remember how the Dear Leader dealt with dictators? Romantic courtship, not leadership. Private hours-long talks with Putin and love letters to Kim Jong Un. All those murderous thugs had to do was compliment the man’s hair dye and they had his favor. 

Folks, this is the contrast we talk about time and time again here at The Lincoln Project. Voters want a leader who will stand up for the values that make our country great. Trump’s kowtowing and weak leadership on the world stage is an electoral weakness for him. It’s an advantage for us. 

He’s been out of the White House for three long and wonderful years, so it’s our job to remind voters of that fact. Trump and his gang of sycophants can play tough, but we all know that on the world stage, they’re completely morally bankrupt. 

The contrast is clear. President Biden continues to prove it every week of his presidency. We just need to deliver the message. And we need your help to do it. 

We’ve got a little over a month left in 2023, and I want to push hard to maximize the message over this final stretch. Can you pitch in to support that work?

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.
