Jeff Lord is downright giddy now that Donald Trump has joined the GOP presidential race.
Jeff tells us it is "a fool's errand to underestimate Trump" because of his - wait for it - "Reaganesque optimism for his country."
I guess this means Jeff has given up on Ted Cruz. Three months ago, Jeff was placing the Reagan mantel on Cruz. But Cruz hasn't exactly set the world ablaze. So I guess Jeff is scrambling for another Reagan.
Trump might sing the praises of Reagan today, but when he was in office he sang a far different tune. In The Art of the Deal, Trump wrote this about The Gipper:
Ronald Reagan is another example. He is so smooth and so effective as a performer that he completely won over the American people. Only now, nearly seven years later, are people beginning to question whether there's anything beneath that smile.
