Sens. Tom Cotton and John Boozman finally warmed to saying Nazism is bad, but on the more relevant question of Donald Trump, they and most Arkansas Republican officeholders have been conspicuously silent. By contrast, see U.S. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee.

“The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order for him to be successful,” Corker said. He added, “[Trump] also recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.”

Status quo simply won’t get the job done, as far as Corker is concerned. There has to be a major course correction.

“We’re at a point where there needs to be radical changes at the White House — it has to happen,” Corker said. “[Trump] recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of our nation — what has made it great and what it is today. He’s got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that. Without those things happening, our nation is going to go through great peril.”
Tom? Tom?

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
