The Lincoln Project

They make good ads, and I am happy to see pretty much anyone punching Trump at this point.

That said, I am bothered by their focus on Trump as the problem.

Trump is an acute symptom of much deeper problems that have been growing on the American right for decades. He needs to be voted out of office, to be sure, and I welcome help in that effort from the conservatives behind the Lincoln Project.

However, I hope that, past this November’s election, they will be taking a hard look at the decisions that led their movement and party to its current sorry state.
