Last quote by Paul Waldman

As a candidate for the presidency, Donald Trump agreed with all his Republican colleagues that the Iran nuclear deal that the United States negotiated along with China, Russia, Great Britain, France and Germany was a disaster, a catastrophe, a calamity. But now, the Trump administration is taking the position that it might actually be working out fine.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Paul Waldman came from an article called Why Trump’s tax returns will keep causing Republicans headaches: “Some time in 2015, Donald Trump made a calculation. If he refused to release his tax returns to the public like every other presidential nominee and president in the past four decades, he’d get criticism from his opponents and the media, but that criticism would be more tolerable than allowing whatever was in those returns to become public. He could take the hit without fundamentally harming his chances of winning and eventually the issue would fade away.”.

Paul Waldman quotes

President Trump started off this morning as he often does, by settling in to watch the festival of nincompoopery that is “Fox & Friends.” On the show, he saw something that he believes vindicates the bizarre and false charge he made that Barack Obama was tapping his phones during the presidential campaign.feedback

I’m going to rip up those trade deals, ” Donald Trump promised when he was campaigning for president, and about no deal was he more emphatic than the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed by George H.W. Bush and ratified under Bill Clinton. “NAFTA has been a disaster for our country. NAFTA has to be totally gotten rid of, ” he said. “So, all of that will change with me and what I tell people is you’re going to have jobs.”.feedback

With the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act in tatters and President Trump’s approval ratings in the 30s, Democrats are feeling pretty good about their ability to limit the damage Republicans are able to do. But another unfolding story demonstrates that the dangers of unified GOP rule come from many different directions, and dramatic change can happen almost before you realize it.feedback

Is trying to cover for the Trump administration in the ever-widening Russia scandal, he’s doing an absolutely terrible job of it. In fact, Nunes is acting as though he’s trying to convince everyone he’s staging a coverup. In the latest development, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has canceled all the committee’s meetings for this week amid calls for him to recuse himself from the investigation - which have come from, among others, the ranking minority member on the committee, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.).feedback

There are many lessons to be learned from the failure of the GOP health-care effort. An important one is that being a businessman, even a successful one, does not prepare you for the complexities of governing, any more than being a successful software engineer means you could easily become a great carpenter.feedback

There’s a war breaking out in the House Intelligence Committee over the unfolding Russia scandal. And in a weird way, the evident desire of the chairman of that committee to protect President Trump may only be increasing Trump’s problems.feedback

Unlike most budget stories, the release of the Trump administration’s first budget proposal is dramatic - it’s got conflict, danger, suspense, and an uncertain outcome. It has also done liberals a great favor, for the very reason they’re so up in arms about it.feedback

When Republicans imagined having a president of their own and control of Congress, they thought it would be a nonstop string of legislative achievements and improvements to government, bringing an inspiring new era of efficiency and effectiveness that showed Americans what the GOP was really capable of.feedback

You'll notice that even though the GOP bill has the full support of the Trump White House, the conservatives are calling it 'Ryancare' as a way of tarring him with what they think will eventually be seen as a failure. They don't view themselves as people with specific practical goals who are willing to negotiate and perhaps compromise to reach those goals – that's for the corrupt insiders. Instead, they're heroic revolutionaries, rousing the rabble and terrifying the establishment.feedback

They need an enemy to rebel against, and for now, Paul Ryan is it.feedback

President Trump’s hilariously candid revelation that “nobody knew that health care could be so complicated” may be remembered as the most succinct summary of the Republicans’ dilemma as they try to fulfill their endlessly repeated promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. And now that things are about to get specific, what had been a dangerous situation for them is about to turn into a nightmare.feedback
