Learning is very important. Some never learn. I have been where you are,
I was like you in 1993 when Clinton took the WH with a Democrat congress, His agenda was gays in the military, a stimulus and Hillary-care, Rush gained his nation-wide fame in those days (the first) opposing him with his radio and TV show starting every day with ‘Day XXX America held hostage” a spoof of ABC Nightline during the Iranian Hostage crisis. It was truly a blast to listen to him in those days,
So the Democrats with all three branches in DC were brought down by Rush, a determined Republican minority and their own over-reaching. Dems lost the congress in a landslide in 1994 after 40 years of power. I stayed up that night till 3 am watching cable and News stations most in complete surprise, unlike 2010.
Those two years were the most exhilarating time to be a Republican.
But in 1995 they took control of the congress and ran into quick-sand Republican congress vs POTUS Clinton., The party was over, then came GWB.
I have seen this before and was not surprised.
This reminds me of what they call the “honeymoon period” in a marriage. The newness wears off and reality sets in.
