Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is being lauded for his speech on Tuesday where he informed his colleagues that he would not seek re-election. He’s opting out because he has been tanking in the polls and knows he can’t emerge from the primary. Such is the fate of a Republican from Arizona who decides he wants to be pro-DACA. Flake has become a reflexive Trump-basher, so naturally the media loves him. He’s been hailed as a principled conservative who is being forced out of politics because Trump’s GOP has changed so much.
We’re equal opportunity here at PJ Media, so my opinion isn’t the only one on the site today.
I found the speech to be tedious, but then I’ve found everything that Flake has said or done for the last two years to be tedious.Laura Ingraham, whom I’m not always thrilled with, got to the heart of what was wrong with this much heralded, and mostly overrated speech.
