Bloomberg on the State of the Union
Letter here. I suspect the other side is experiencing what we have experienced under past Administrations -- forgotten, because "what are you going to do, vote for the other side the next time around?" You'll get a small favor now and then, if it's not unpopular to give it, but when it comes to anything major, "I know thee not, old man."
Somewhere in my files I have a copy of an internal memo written in the early days of the Jimmy Carter administration, where a staffer writes to her superiors that someone is going to have to tell Handgun Control Inc. [since renamed the Brady Campaign] that it cannot expect the administration to endorse registration, permits, or anything significant, and that message is going to have to come from someone above her pay grade.
