In Defense of Mike Pence

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 26,2023

            THE WASHINGTON POST – A SO-CALLED NEWSPAPER I HAVE TO READ – HAS CARRIED A COLUMN BY A DAVID BYLER, IDENTIFIED AS A POLITICAL  COLUMNIST AND DATA ANALYST.

            BYLER COMPARES POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR 2024 AND SAYS FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE SITS ALONE. THE BASE DOESN’T LIKE PENCE, HE SAYS, FOR NOT OVERTURNING THE ELECTION RESULTS THAT PUT JOE BIDEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.           

            THE BASE IS WRONG. PENCE DID HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AND HONORABLE DUTY AFTER CONSULTING EXPERTS AND PRAYING…A LOT.

            I HAVE KNOWN PENCE FOR DECADES. HE IS A SOLID CONSERVATIVE WHO BELIEVES IN THE POLICIES OF TRUMP BUT DOEN’T HAVE HIS BAGGAGE, HE IS A ONCE-MARRIED, SERIOUS CHRISTIAN AND FAMILY MAN. IF REPUBLICAN VOTERS DON’T LIKE PENCE, MAYBE THAT’S THEIR PROBLEM, NOT HIS.

            THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT, IT IS A DEFENSE OF A MAN WHO IS MY FRIEND AND WHO I KNOW. IF THE REPUBLICAN BASE DOESN’T LIKE HIM, THAT SAYS MORE ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY ARE WILLING TO SETTLE FOR THAN IT SAYS ABOUT MIKE PENCE. HE HAS SUCCEEDED AT ALL HE HAS DONE AND HAS NEVER BEEN ACCUSED OF PROFESSIONAL OR PERSONAL WRONGDOING. I’M CAL THOMAS.
