The more GOP presidents change, the more things stay the same

September 5, 2020 --

LPR recommends an op-ed column by David B Rivkin, Jr. and Lee A. Casey, in The Wall Street Journal, late last month, warning that mail-in voting may make "an orderly election possible." This is not the first time LPR has taken note of an insightful op-ed column by these authors.

Go to archives, the year 2007, then go to October, and you will find reference to an op-ed article by Messrs. Rivkin and Casey on the wisdom of the founders. (LPR, October 1, 2007. )

In this column, written  thirteen years ago, the authors encouraged President George W. Bush to resist an assault on his powers from congressional Democrats. 

(Of course, throughout the four years of, Godwilling, his first term in office, President Trump has been resisting assaults from Democrats on his very legitimacy as president, as well as on his powers.)
