Bush's 2004 strategist says 'people's hair would be on fire' if Bush, Obama had used the White House as a re-election prop

General August 29, 2020

Bush's 2004 strategist says 'people's hair would be on fire' if Bush, Obama had used the White House as a re-election propPresident Trump walked from the White House to a stage on the South Lawn to give his Republican National Convention acceptance speech Thursday night, turning "the People's House" into "a partisan prop like no politician has ever done before," Michael D. Shear writes at The New York Times.> This is the image people have in their heads when they write government ethics laws. pic.twitter.com/8ljWmw7pCK> > — Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolender) August 27, 2020"Previous presidents have sought to carefully navigate the propriety of mixing campaigning with governing," Shear noted, and while a few have announced their re-election campaigns from inside the White House, none has used it for such an "overtly political event," with "live crowds flanked by giant Jumbotrons on either side of the White House, serving as immense campaign billboards." If Barack Obama or George W. Bush had tried such a stunt during their re-election campaigns, "people's hair would be on fire," Bush's 2004 campaign chief strategist, Matthew Dowd, said on ABC News.> .@matthewjdowd: "I never thought I would see what I'm seeing tonight on the South Lawn. > > I can't imagine what would have happened if we had done that in 2004 or if Barack Obama had done that in 2012…people's hair would be on fire." https://t.co/AL3W4wottM RNC2020 pic.twitter.com/qy1yItFEzi> > — ABC News (@ABC) August 28, 2020"It's not only, I believe, unethical, misuse of government power," Dowd added. "It may be illegal, what's happening on the South Lawn, and a bad modeling of behavior in the midst of a COVID crisis."None of the Bushes participated in this year's RNC, nor did any Cheneys, Reagans, or McCains. Also, "several dozen former staffers from Sen. Mitt Romney's (R-Utah) presidential campaign, the George W. Bush administration, and the campaign and Senate staff of former Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) have signed on to an effort to elect Joe Biden," Politico reported Thursday. "For the Romney and McCain staffers, they're working to elect the same man they tried to defeat in 2012 and 2008, respectively." (Dowd was not among the Bush alumni who signed a pro-Biden letter.)But perhaps Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) had the most succinct, on-brand response to Trump's use of the White House as a campaign prop. > Get off our lawn.> > — Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) August 28, 2020More stories from theweek.com McConnell inexplicably claims that Democrats want to tell Americans 'how many hamburgers you can eat' 5 more scathingly funny cartoons about the Republican National Convention The X-Files is getting an animated comedy spinoff

    Hello SCARS, We adopted Nola, a Catahoula cross, in August 2015 when she was about 2 years old after her recent litter was adopted out.

    September 4, 2020 - I have nothing but kind words to say about the people who rescued me. They heard me screaming and saw I was being attacked and mauled by a big dog. They thought that I was dead until I twitched and started breathing. They knew who to call to save me
