Obama, Trump, and the End of Washington’s Regular Order

  • The Heritage Foundation 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Reverberations from the 2016 Presidential election continue to rattle the national political stage. In Bet You Didn’t See That One Coming, former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich offers his analysis of the unexpected election of Donald J. Trump, the resultant earth-shattering changing of the guard in Washington, how it’s turned establishment politics on its head, and what it all means for the future of the nation.

The 24/7 media circus that follows President Trump distracts from the fundamental issue of what his election means for America going forward. Bet You Didn’t See That One Coming explains how Barack Obama’s progressive policies helped ignite the ultimate anti-Obama political warrior – and how a neophyte politician’s new blend of populism, nationalism, and traditional Republican policies is pulling a polarized country back toward the right.

Governor Robert L. Ehrlich is a graduate of Princeton University and Wake Forest University School of Law and is a former Governor of Maryland as well as a former United States Congressman and state legislator. He is also the author of Turn This Car Around,America: Hope for Change, and Turning Point, in addition to columns and opinion pieces that have appeared in America’s leading newspapers and periodicals, including The Washington Examiner,The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, The Washington Times, The Weekly Standard, and National Review. Currently, Governor Ehrlich is a partner at the firm of King & Spalding in Washington, D.C.
