— From Peggy Noonan: “Something big has shifted. The standing of the administration has changed.
As always it comes down to trust. Do you trust the president’s answers when he’s pressed on an uncomfortable story? Do you trust his people to be sober and fair-minded as they go about their work? Do you trust the IRS and the Justice Department? You do not.

A president sets a mood, a tone. He establishes an atmosphere. If he is arrogant, arrogance spreads. If he is to too partisan, too disrespecting of political adversaries, that spreads too. Presidents always undo themselves and then blame it on the third guy in the last row in the sleepy agency across town.”

Yesterday the GOP announced the appointment of several new Regional Political Directors that will work in conjunction with new field and communications directors; In addition, the GOP plans to further empower state parties. For this to work, a lot of pieces have to fall into place. Leaders speak of ‘bottom-up’ initiatives, but so far it’s ‘top-down.’ Will local political activists embrace these new initiatives?
In the recent ‘Growth & Opportunity’ report, the GOP indirectly referred the Tea Party and other conservative groups as ‘Friends and Allies - Third Party Groups.’ Third party? Does anyone proof-read this stuff before it’s published?
