Last night, I was reminded why I voted for Trump – he says all the right things.
He said all the right things during the campaign, and he said all the right things last night.
Of course…if you’re a Democrat, you’ll wholeheartedly disagree. And you’ll look quite silly doing so:
Democrats are so mad at Trump that they:
- Dress in black
- Wear colorful scarfs
- Look at their phones
- Cross their arms
- Sit on their hands
When the speech was over and they could get up and leave, what’d they do?
They sent out a Kennedy to tell us how things should be.
Here’s a family that:
- Rose to power through illegal liquor sales
- Had questionable stock market trades
- Engaged in voter fraud in the 1960 Election
- Had a president that cheated on his wife all the time
- Had an AG that cheated on his wife quite often
- Had a senator that drove a woman off a bridge while he was drunk, and then left her to die
Who the hell came up with the ‘great idea’ to have a Kennedy speak for common Democrats?
Personally, I don’t think Democrats speak for common people in this country anymore.
Trump does that. He did it last night.
Whether it was talking about the doubling of the child tax credit, giving me more take-home pay, or letting my kid have free healthcare for another 6 years…it was Trump that took the working issues of Democrats and made them his own.
Aside from that, both black unemployment and Hispanic unemployment are at the lowest levels in history. Fewer people are on food stamps than they have been in years.
Tons of companies – both large and small – are giving bonuses and pay raises. Some companies are even investing billions of dollars back into America. Apple just did this. Usually that money would go to Chinese plants and factories.
I guess if I was a Democrat, I’d be pissed off and scowling and sitting on my hands too.
For them, here’s a guy that came out of nowhere, said all the wrong things, and never should have won.
But he did win, and damn it all to hell…wouldn’t you know it? Dems were reminded of that last night. And they hated every minute of it and wanted us to know it.
Personally, when I go to work with coworkers that clearly hate their job and don’t want to be there, I wonder why they’re still working there. I’m sure my boss does, too.
What will the American people think of the Dems’ performance last night?
I think we’ll see quite clearly in November that they didn’t like it, and that they don’t feel the Dems can do anything for them.
Already, Dems sound like they’re going to dig in their heels on the border wall funding…which means no DACA.
And here’s Trump, saying that nearly 3 times the number of illegal immigrants can gain a path to citizenship than the Dems wanted.
This will clearly become the big issue over the coming weeks, especially as we get closer to the next possible government shutdown, which is set for next Thursday.
I’m not sure Democrats even know what their big issues are.
One thing we do know is that this year’s speech had some of the best guests in a long time. Whether it was a Coast Guard woman that saved a bunch of people, a firefighter that did the same, or a border agent that actually adopted a drug addict's kid, these were some amazing people.
We had the parents of two girls that were killed by illegal alien gang members; we had the parents of the poor guy that was beaten to a brain-damaged state by the North Koreans; we had a guy on crutches that escaped from that shithole of a country.
These were some memorable guests that elicited strong emotions from those in attendance and those at home. Putting a face on the issues.
And I didn’t see any guests that were angry with or sick of the president. I did see people that were proud he was highlighting their plights, and what their families had been through.
I even saw Democrats stop crying in their beer long enough to actually stand up and applaud some of them.
So what was bad about the speech?
Trump’s continual clapping began to grow annoying, and I noticed lots of Dems on social media lampooning him for this.
At the same time, I noticed that his clapping directed the rest of the chamber. Sometimes this meant clapping went on longer, sometimes it meant it wrapped up quickly.
I had to ask myself…where the hell’s this $1.5 trillion for infrastructure going to come from? Trump says he wants that from Congress, which I guess means we’ll just print up more money.
Why pay the bill now when we can have our great-grandkids do it for us? We sure as hell know that states don't have the money for it, not when they have to have balanced budgets.
I didn’t hear a lot on inflation, which I’ve noticed is rearing its ugly head when I go to buy groceries.
I didn’t hear much on our second war with Korea, which will surely begin in March, following the Winter Olympics.
I didn’t hear much on the fact that a president born on a lunar full moon eclipse was the first president to give a state of the union address during a full moon lunar eclipse.
It was clear the world was watching last night. Over 23 million watched, which is 19% more than last year…though about 10 million fewer than watched in 2009.
I watched the whole thing and enjoyed it.
Now we can sit back and watch the drive-by media bash the hell out of it; the conservative media talk-it-up.
Meanwhile, the strong Americans that Trump mentioned will continue to get up and go to work, ensuring this country works so those in the District of Criminals keep getting enough play money so they can bitch and moan and not do their jobs, blaming the other guy, while looking forward to their next extended – and taxpayer-funded – recess.
At least we’re doing our jobs, and this nation is strong because of it.
