“You’re awake by the way. You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also, you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now. This is our election now. This is us. This is our country.” – Rachel Maddow’s reaction to Trump becoming President
When Barack Obama was elected, conservatives didn’t cry like the liberals you see in this HILARIOUS VIDEO. We didn’t need therapy. We didn’t start wailing that he was Hitler or demand safe spaces. Instead, we said, “That sucks. This guy is going to be terrible for the country.” By the way, we were right. He was. But still, we got up and we went to work. Then when the time came, we went to Tea Parties. We obeyed the law at those Tea Parties. We paid for our permits. We were polite to the police. We cleaned up behind ourselves. Then we organized and we took control of the House and the Senate along with the majority of state legislatures and governorships. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
The Michigan Republican Party under the leadership of Ronna Romney McDaniel has done what seemed the impossible by turning Michigan ‘red’ – from 1972 through 1988 the state voted exclusively Republican, before becoming part of the ‘blue wall’ that voted Democratic in six consecutive presidential elections from 1992 through 2012.
Donald Trump broke the “blue wall” by taking Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and now, Michigan! This is what Donald Trump’s electoral map looks like:
Has America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBIannouncement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?
We’ll find out soon enough.
It’s obvious the American political system is breaking down. It’s been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they’re properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.
Hillary Embraced All Things Obama To Win The Nomination, But Now She Is Stuck With His Lackluster Economy.
Ed Rogers in today’s Washington Post – A slew of bad economic headlines last week made it official: The Obama economy has failed.
As noted in the Wall Street Journal, “Even seven years after the recession ended . . .
In terms of average annual growth, the pace of this expansion has been by far the weakest of any since 1949.”
The economy has grown at an annual rate of only 2.1 percent since the recession ended in June 2009, compared with annual growth of 4.3 percent during the economic expansion from 1982 to 1990.
So what does this mean for Hillary Clinton? Let’s remember, economic circumstances produce political consequences. They are the issues that drive votes.
Gallup found that 60 percent of Americans think economic conditions in this country are “getting worse.”
The typical American might not be able to quote statistics about how if the labor force participation rate were the same today as it was when Obama took office, the unemployment rate would be 9.2 percent instead of 4.9 percent.
They can’t rattle off statistics about the decline in median household income under President Obama, but they can tell you firsthand about small businesses that have closed in their communities, friends who can’t find work, and their own financial struggles.
And nothing they hear from Clinton makes them believe things are going to get better.
Clinton was forced to embrace all things Obama to win the Democratic nomination, so she is stuck with his economy. I can’t imagine a worse scenario for a Democrat less than four months before any election, especially as economic growth remains so weak.
If the state of the economy controls the outcome of the election, Clinton could have a big problem on her hands.
The future of our nation is at stake. There is already one Supreme Court vacancy that will be filled by the next President. The world continues to become a more and more dangerous place thanks to the failed foreign policies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Our national economy continues to struggle. We need real change to fix the problems facing our nation.
