A 'Blue Wave' of Moral Restoration (liberal world crumbling down all around them)
New York Times ^ | May 17, 2018 | Charlie Blow

Posted on 05/17/2018 12:00:27 PM PDT by ethom

President Donald Trump’s approval ratings are rising. The Democratic advantage on survey questions about party preference for control of Congress is vanishing. Liberal anxiety about the fate of the midterms — is rising.

For world leaders, Donald Trump is the representative of America, which remains the planet’s military and economic powerhouse, and in that way, for now, America is not only too big to fail, it is too big to forsake.

Other countries will do whatever it takes to have a successful relationship with the United States, whatever their version of “successful” means. In the case of Trump, many have realized that the best way to work with him is to flatter him, and the highest form of flattery is to make him feel that he’s winning and is respected.<

Stop hoping that Trump’s supporters will abandon him. They may never. Each voter must be governed by his or her own conscience. If they have chosen to follow the forsaken down his path of destruction, so be it. Focus instead on increasing the awareness, passion and turnout and on fighting apathy and burnout.

Work hard, message well and bring your passion — and a few neighbors and friends — to the polls in November.

The party of sexual perversion and racial hatred is now standing on its moral pedestal. Best of luck with that one.

re> If they have chosen to follow the forsaken down his path of destruction

If Trump is causing destruction it is everything Obama lacked. Good news economy booming, jobs are plentiful...bad news my landscaper can't find help this year.

The party of sexual pervesion and racial hatred in now standing on its moral pedestal. That pedestal is as solid as an Egyptien pyramid.
The serious problem is that the pedestal POINTY END in the one in the ground. Good luck with THAT.

“the truth is, no presidency is a complete failure”
I seem to recall the previous eight years before Trump as a complete failure.

Do Blow and the Democrats have any message - at all? Or is their only message that it is their divine right to rule over us and that we, these interlopers, must be conquered. Oh, and they hate Trump because he is one of “them”.

Everything these people think, do, and say, and I mean everything, revolves around their belief that they are morally superior and the rightful rulers of this planet. Anything less than that is an incomprehensible dissonance to them that they struggle to understand.

Hahaha….the despair is leaking out of this whiney piece and is puddling on the NYT floor.

Make sure your Right-thinking friends and loved ones join you at the polls in Nov. and resoundingly affirm Pres. Trump’s agenda. A Trump Wave will bring the Left to its knees and encourage the weak GOP politicians who still are not aboard the mighty Trump Train to a Great America.

This is actually a lame and tame column by Blow. He usually plays the race card, insults Trump, and denigrates America.

All in the first sentence.

Here he is now taking on an almost defeatist attitude.

Good. Very good.

When this fellow Blow from the NYSlimes says, referring to Trump's supporters, "....If they have chosen to follow the forsaken down his path of destruction, so be it....", is there any reason to read further?

Not for me.

Moral Restoration?

There is ZERO that is moral about the current Democrat party. it is the one of the most cynically, and proudly, amoral organizations currently in existence
