My article yesterday explored this child-exploitation trend, and here's Todd Irons, former deputy communcations director at the Republican National Committee:
It seems whenever the Democrats are entering some tough sledding on their legislative priorities, they trot out the children. It does seem to smell of desperation.Kristen Soltis, a pollster for the Winston Group, told me that it won't matter in the end:
While Pelosi may want to use the visual of young people to increase support for the bill, in the end it will be the content of the bill - not the optics of press events - that Americans will hold Democrats responsible for.That's probably true. But it doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be called out as reprehensible in the meantime.
