Joshua Micah Marshall in the Boston Globe:
The fallacy of the ”get tough” approach is that it mistakes the symptom (cravenness) for the underlying malady (a lack of political creativity). Taking a stand for unpopular positions is often necessary. But it’s seldom a truly successful way of practicing politics. The key is framing debates and crafting messages so that one doesn’t find oneself in such an unfortunate position in the first place.
That’s true too. [02:38 PM]
