Dana Milbank looks at Republicans’ early campaign tactics for this fall’s election and concludes that they intend to use ad hominem character assassination, lies, innuendo, falsified photos, and the like as their first choice of tactics (follow the link for his list of numerous examples).
He suggests that the Trumpling of the Republican Party is complete. A snippet (emphasis added):
No longer just the party of Donald Trump, Republicans sound like they are Donald Trump. And their strategy amounts to an extraordinary acknowledgment of failure: After two years of undivided control of Congress and the White House, and eight years of GOP legislative majorities, Republicans cannot come up with a single policy achievement – on taxes, health care, regulations or anything else – that they believe will resonate with voters.
