Some ‘Big Ideas’ for the President Two Years In

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

Whether the president is able to win reelection remains a huge question. Satisfying his base is not enough. He needs to win votes from those who might not have warmed to him personally. Cut Corporate Welfare. Defend America. Stand up for the First Amendment and the values behind it. Separate immigration from citizenship. Challenge business, cutural, and political elites to get to know America. Make the Democrats fight him on his own ground. As the next presidential election comes into focus, politics is only going to grow even more bitter. The president needs to do more than simply repeat his old talking points. If he wants both to change America and get reelected, he needs to advance some grand new ideas.
