What We Learned in Trump’s Cleveland - POLITICO Magazine: "For the last eight years, Republicans have behaved less like a conservative party than an anti-Obama party. They waged war against the president from his first week in office—not only over progressive priorities like subsidized health care, Wall Street reform, climate action, and tax hikes on the rich, but also over Common Core educational standards, infrastructure projects, small-business tax cuts, and other federal initiatives that Republicans traditionally supported.

There were 16 more conservative candidates in the primary, but he was the ultimate anti-Obama candidate, questioning not only the president’s policies, but his citizenship."
