Fmr. Obama Speechwriter: If You Cave to ‘Hostage Taking, the Only Thing You’ll Get Is More Hostage Taking’
LITT: "Well, you know, you know, there’s an old Will Rogers quote, I belong to no organized political party. I am a Democrat. So in that sense, I’m always surprised when we manage to hold it together and stay organized. But I think in this case, we understand, that if you cave to this kind of hostage taking, the only thing you’re going to get is more hostage taking."
MELVIN: "You don’t reward bad behavior."
