Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy gave a passionate speech about the way forward for the nation at the Board of Overseer’s winter meeting in Washington, DC. He argued that Americans are looking for strong leadership, which the Republican Party can provide as long as it focuses above all else on creating good policy based on conservative ideals. In Representative McCarthy’s view, the nation is set up for an important fight to determine its future, with circumstances reminiscent of the 1980 election. For the country to move forward in the same way that it did after 1980, the fight of 2012 must be fought and won decisively to reverse the harmful policies that have led the country to its present state. Any Republican leader who enters the fight must show that he or she understands the issues and needs of the average American and must emphasize the singular importance of good policy in determining the nation’s future. As a personal note to members of the audience, Representative McCarthy congratulated them on their support of the Hoover Institution, remarking that the synergy between Congress and Hoover has never been as high as it now is.
