Rob Woodall’s Path for Bipartisanship Lost in Shuffle

First things first: yes he bungled his response to the Mueller Report on MSNBC.

However, Congressman Woodall did outline a path for bipartisanship in D.C. Part of that involves politicians (and the chattering class) divorcing themselves from the voters “who have a thirst for something.”

“There is still a wild majority of hard working men and women on both sides of the aisle who just want to get something done.”

So is Woodall, a guy on the way out, spineless, or does he really believe the… Read more »
