Yeah, and looking back 2 years, I think we missed it.
I read that early in 2017, GOP Congress coulda gotten Wall funding by budget reconciliation. We had won it ALL! But they didn’t do it. And Trump signed budget after budget which not only didn’t fund his signature promise, but actively prohibited it.
Yes, great: standing firm now is the least he could do, the best he can do, and it’s also probably the last thing he has power to do. I support it. But it’s to little too late. He shoulda taken this stance in March 2017.
I wonder why he didn’t? I think probably, contrary to the Lefty portrayal of him as impetuous, headstrong, unwilling to accept counsel, he did defer to the advice of GOP Congress members like Ryan and McConnell. I think any citizen-president would. They’d been in DC a long time, he was a newcomer, and: they’re in his own party, for Chrissakes! Like all of us, he’d been hearing that they desperately wanted to repeal Obamacare and deal with illegal immigration. And besides, didn’t they owe him for getting the GOP all 3 branches of,our government? Wasnt it reasonable to lean toward feeling they were on the same side as Trump and his voters?
And what’s going to happen now, on Jan 3?
Does anybody doubt that Trump is going to be impeached? He will probably survive the trial in the Senate. But so what? There will be wave after wave of investigatory activity. We will be beaten into the clay by these steelshod Progs.
Of course I hope I’m wrong. But O Ratty, do you see any possible positive outcome Of this impasse for Trump and for us?
