Monica Crowley: The Problem with GOP Is They Break Ranks Every Five Minutes

‘I have enormous respect for these senators but they have made careers of being contrarians’

CROWLEY: “That's exactly right. Look, to Geraldo’s point, I wish it were that easy where the President could invite senators McCain and Graham and all would be well, but we know what their track record — that’s likely not to be the case. I have enormous respect for these senators but they have made careers of being contrarian. They are notorious for breaking ranks with conservatives, aligning with moderates and even Democrats to support certain positions. We know that they are no fans of this president. And they are going to take every opportunity that they can to criticize his agenda and to criticize him. That is not going to change despite any kind of charm offensive. The problem is that the Democrats never break ranks, ever. The Republicans do it every 5 minutes.”
