George Will: Unrestricted liberalism is best selling point for conservatism


george-will-foxPointing to newly elected New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Pulitzer Prize winning columnist and political commentator George Will thinks a resurgence of liberal ideas could be the best thing to happen for conservatives.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace asked Will if the election of de Blasio, a dyed-in-the-wool leftist, is a sign of a resurgence of liberalism, Newsbusters reported.

“Oh, there’s nothing better for American conservatism than periodic examples of untrammeled liberalism,” Will responded.

“Lyndon Johnson after 1964 had huge majorities in Congress, had his way,” Will continued. Republicans won five of the next six and seven of the next nine presidential elections. Let him have his way in New York City, and let people see what happens.”

Will pointed out that public sector unions are eager to negotiate with de Blasio in anticipation of receiving “anything they ask for.”

“I give him three years and people will be begging for a return to something else,” he concluded.

As for the notion that de Blasio represents a “resurgence of liberal ideas,” President Barack Obama must be thinking to himself: “What am I, chopped liver?”
