Skip to comments.Trump Starts Year Two In a Far Better Position Than Democrats Imagined
Posted on 02/22/2018 6:00:03 AM PST by MarvinStinson
Donald Trumps critics never imagined that more than a year into his presidency, his approval rating would be rising and just under 50%, the economy would be cranking up to a 4% growth rate, North Korea would have quieted down temporarily, U.S. oil production would be rising sharply and imports steadily declining, ISIS dispersed, over $6 trillion added to Dow-Jones Industrial stock values (despite Mondays slide), and the Clintons as well as Mr. Trumps official investigators facing far more serious legal questions than he is.
It was about a year ago that Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal suggested that the White House leaks could be Mr. Trumps Watergate. ABC commentator Nate Silver said his chances of impeachment were 25% to 50%. David Gergen said, We are moving into impeachment territory.
This is the level that the criminalization of political differences has reached: If the Democrats regain control of the House, even by a paper-thin margin, they will vote articles of impeachment no matter how spurious.
This telltale assumption that President Trump isnt legitimate, which really derives from the fact that he was a complete outsider to the political class and he attacked the Bushes and Clintons and President Obama in equal voice, is the tiny detritus of the original horror and disbelief and professed fear that he would plunge into foreign war while the country burst into flames and all social progress since FDRs time would be rolled back.
While the hatred of Mr. Trump in some circles has not much abated, the extent of alarm and hostility he originally generated as he had outspokenly denounced the biases and ignorance of the mainstream press and circumvented them by his domination of the social media and the talk-radio field) has declined.

They didn’t even think he’d START year 2 :)
They foam at the mouth and poop themselves when discussing Trump. It's a thing of beauty.
yes. the vitriol exposes them for who they really are and is turning a lot of younger folks to the right.
It is a sad thing when the hatred of Trump overrides all rational thought.
He changes times and seasons, deposes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.
GOD put PRESIDENT TRUMP in the Oval Office. MAGA.
It's a thing of beauty.”
My brother is one of those people suffering TDS. Here is a short exchange:
Brother: Obama is a diversion - Extreme party domination leads to despotism, and absolute power of an individual, and he turns this to his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty. The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."
Me: Obama, who committed many crimes, used federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies to spy on a presidential candidate, the President. Elect, and then the POTUS is a diversion. That dog don't hunt.
Brother: I will stick with George Washingtons warning about the evil that people like Trump can do to America.
Me: Obama and Hillary started the whole fake "Russia Collusion" nonsense, broke many law as well as committed sedition and now they're going to have to pay the price.
Me: Trump is more like George Washington been any president we've had in over 100 years but you can't even see it.
Me: George Washington made a lot of money in real estate
Brother: No, Ulysses Grant and Eisenhower were more like Washington. Trump is like Aaron Burr
Brother: excuse me Benedict Arnold
Me: Ulysses S Grant was a great military man but he was not a good businessman ever
Me: George Washington was primarily a businessman
Me: Eisenhower was in the military his whole life and never had a life outside of government service
Brother: All three Career officers. Washington built the country, Grant built the railroads, and Eisenhower built the Interstate, DARPA, NASA, and many other things, including Silicon Valley
Me: I have immense respect for all three of them and I did say in "in 100 years" not entire history of the United States
Me: Back in colonial times in both Europe and America all wealthy men served in the military, it was like the Elks club to them, especially in Virginia. Also in the 18th century troops were forbidden to shoot gentlemen
Brother: We deserve a lot better than Trump
Me: Well Trump is what you got and he's of shit lot better than Obama ever was
Me: Or Hillary would've ever been
Me: Hillary is a pants-shitting, seizure-suffering, murderous, grifter-granny
Brother: Traitor Trump likes a good spanking during his golden showers Have a good weekend
Me: Sure he does. At least he isn't into gay sex and spirit-cooking.
and yet we Trump supporters are not surprised in the least. we EXPECTED Trump to triumph and keep as many campaign promises as possible (subject of course to GOPe Congressional obstructionism) ...
They didn’t think he would start.
All of the media and Dem predictions of Trump failures have fallen flat. They could have been correct if they predicted the media and Dems failing instead.
