Personally, I think the thing to add is the observation that the White House sees the goal of the game – the outcome, the winning state – to be winning elections for the Republican Party. Is that what you want the purpose of your government to be? The acquisition and continuation of private power?
Personally, I want a government that considers itself to be “winning” by advancing the welfare of the American people, an outcome that is neither measurable by nor even related to elections.
