Lessons from shut­down

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Pres­i­dent Trump's de­feat at the hands of House Ma­jor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi serves two rather ob­vi­ous lessons that we seem­ingly have to learn over and over again.

First, the best way to de­feat a bully is to stand up to them, not give in to them as Pelosi ex­posed Trump for the weak, cow­ardly per­son he is.

Se­condly, too many of us moths were at­tracted to the flame and Trump be­came pres­i­dent. Frankly, Ted Cruz would have been many peo­ple's se­cond choice.

De­cent, hard-work­ing politi­cians, like for­mer gover­nors John Ka­sich and Jeb Bush never stood a chance. Next elec­tion, let's look a lit­tle closer into the horse’s mouth be­fore we hitch our wagon to him.
