Adapted from RET’s remarks at TAS’s annual Robert L. Bartley dinner on October 23 in Washington, D.C.Twenty thirteen was a distressing year. The president handed the foreign policy of the United States over to the KGB. Who knows, perhaps next year he will hand over domestic policy to Monaco. Who knows? Nevertheless, 2012 was no blowout. We have firm control of the House and a good shot at the Senate next year. We have 54 percent of the state legislatures and 60 percent of the governors’ mansions. Finally, we are poised to take the White House in 2016 with appealing candidates ranging from New Jersey to Wisconsin, from Florida to Texas, from Kentucky to Louisiana, all of them smart, experienced, principled, articulate, and even telegenic.
