Posted on 05/12/2018 5:38:57 PM PDT by Hojczyk
The Never Trumpers are retiring in dozens, led by Messrs. Ryan, Flake, Corker, and the ailing John McCain (who helped stoke up the Russian-collusion fraud and called Mr. Trumps Arizona supporters crazies). The president has risen fairly steadily in the polls to between 45% and 50%, and ahead of where President Obama was eight years ago, despite the most intensive press sandbag-job since that which overwhelmed Richard Nixon in 197374.
Support for the Mueller investigation is steadily declining. The presidents approval rating is more than twice that of Congress and almost thrice the presss. The White House Correspondents Dinner last week was a self-destructively embarrassing disgrace.
It is easy to find Donald Trump distasteful. Those who do, though, should not only recognize the emerging correlation of forces and the Presidents policy successes, but be aware also that before he was president, he accomplished more than any previous occupant of that office other than Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Grant, and Eisenhower. The longer his enemies try, in their snobbery and partisan spite, to criminalize policy differences, the more bone-crushing will be their defeat. They have sown, and they shall reap.

That's heady company right there.
Before we were Trump supporters we were hobbits.
I like to see Grant get some credit, as well as Trump.
What worries me is that if there is a steady drumbeat of accusing Trump of nonsense, it may be a setup for something for which there is contrived fake “proof.”
Mueller has to report something really wrong about Trump or people will say “You wasted those millions and work hours and all that time for nothing??”
Conrad Black really hits it out of the park.
Grant the Drunk?
And they dropped us like bad hobbits.
I’d add Theodore and Andrew Jackson to that list.
Good article by Conrad Black. Thanks for posting.
Those two became great AFTER they won the presidency, not before.
MAGA = The Scouring of the Shire.
John Adams’ name should be on the list as well, for his great contributions during the American Revolution. It was his idea to pick George Washington to head the Continental Army, and it’s possible that Washington is the only one who would have succeeded in that role. Adams did yeoman service in persuading the Continental Congress to vote for independence.
"In 1814 we took a little trip,
Along with Col. Jackson down the mighty Mississipp'..."
Yep, just like Trump the pussy-grabber.
And for us less erudite types, inspiration for installing a browser dictionary add-on!
