The Hinlicky Rule and the New York Times
March 15, 2017
American politics for whatever reason in the era of George W. Bush and Barrack Obama has become especially polarized. In that heated political environment that surrounds American politics it frustrates me to see usually thoughtful people descend into little more than partisan bickering. What Bush used to do with reckless abandon is now denounced as patently un-American when done by Obama. What Obama supporters used to scream loudly about when done by Bush is now either ignored or sometimes even praised when done by Obama. Politics brings out the worst in people as they put the logic of what they are saying aside and put the relationship they have with a politician into a primary position.
