I’ll say one thing about our efforts here on PeteHoekstra.com: I don’t think it’s just a coincidence that Pete is turning down the volume on his hawkishness since our efforts began.
Here he is on C-SPAN on Wednesday morning (1/13) essentially telling former Vice President Dick Cheney to “back off”.
This, following last week’s positive comments toward President Obama which I blogged about on Saturday 1/9.
It was less than 3 weeks ago where he went across the airwaves to hammer the President for “downplay(ing) the threat from terrorism…”, which is exactly what he’s now suggesting Cheney “back off” from doing!
Dare I say our efforts have contributed to making him aware of how badly his divisive style was playing?
