Since at least the 1980s (yes, the 1980s!), the accusation of racism has been the left’s only answer when the facts of their policy failures are brought to light. Here is Newt Gingrich:
As I watched the Democratic debates this week, something struck me that I believe will prove important in 2020: The candidates have nothing they can defend and nothing tangible to attack.
