I am beginning to believe that my liberal friends, of whom I am fortunate to have many, are collectively, absolutely clueless about what Donald Trump has done and is doing to them.
I have maintained a fascinated watch of The Donald since the earliest days of his campaign, when I warned fellow Republicans that he was a demagogue who knew exactly what he was up to and he needed to be taken seriously. I said much the same thing to dismissive Democrats and publicly predicted he would win in the last few weeks of the campaign.
Now were seeing the same dismissive attitude in what is passing for leadership in the Democratic party, while Trump is shoving through them like the proverbial crap through a goose.
I suspect the Trumpians couldnt believe their good fortunes in having a precedent for what is, in effect, the French system of governance by decree provided by Barack Obamas active use of executive orders at the end of his term. Theres no need to wait for a shy Republican Congress to pass Trumps initiatives; he simply decrees them and invites Congress to do something about it.
In doing the refugee freeze early on, he plays his strong hand to his supporters in the face of an absolutely predictable Democratic response. Result, much to the surprise of the traditional media: More than half the country approves, while the Democrats look as if they are doing nothing more than trying to vindicate themselves in the eyes of the country and proclaiming we all made some kind of mistake in electing Trump.
Theyre still looking at the last election. Good luck with that...

Since you are so positive on the article, define demagogue.
Trump; Hussein set the pace, signed laws that allow me, Trump, with multiple phones and many pens to kick your commie/socialist butt to the kerb.
Any random Democrat national leader. 😀
President Trump is bringing some spine and good old American testosterone to the GOP.
>>Since you are so positive on the article, define demagogue.
The author is no friend of Trump..or us...but it is a good analysis anyway. The problem for the Progressives (of both parties) is that they are watching this force of nature hit them like a tsunami and are just standing there saying, “it’s not real, it’s not real”.
Some Progs are trying to snap them out of it, but they are locked into their illusion of invincibility, that somehow they will cause him to resign because they are unhappy and breaking some windows.
I love these analyses. I just ignore the name-calling and read a truth that most Progs will never accept, so they just watch that tsunami and keep muttering, “this isn’t real”.
It is pretty good. The author seems to somehow be critical of Trump, but just keeps on saying how effective and smart he is.
1. Medicine of or having sclerosis.
2. becoming rigid and unresponsive; losing the ability to adapt. "sclerotic management"
Some of them are screaming at the tsunami, or at the sky, and trying to set fire to the ocean.
some of them are trying to explain and justify emptying of that ocean into a drinking cup, ie unfettered borders and wholescale welfare.
He is evincing that spine and testosterone but I am not convinced he can impart it to the Republican Party. Republicans still think that Democrats are the Natural Ruling Class and that Republicans only exist to help keep them from their flightiest fancies and they have ceased even doing that.
Leaders are generally divided into two types of personalities.....they are either politicians or warriors. President Trump is a warrior and the world better get used to it.
“Republicans still think that Democrats are the Natural Ruling Class”
That’s exactly right. The GOP legislators seem to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome or Battered Wife Syndrome. They have the power to escape the abusers but choose not to. Even worse, they assist the abusers.
>>Some of them are screaming at the tsunami, or at the sky, and trying to set fire to the ocean.
That’s all just stomping their feet as they say, “this isn’t real”.
This paragraph opening is quite a dichotomy.
That is pure poetry.
You are my tagline now.
It’s been that way since Nixon with a brief hiatus for the Gingrich phenomenon.
