Best part of Trump speech

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth,” he declared. “Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.”

To paraphrase President Lincoln: “I like this man. He fights.”

UPDATE:  And another former president, Jefferson: “I hold that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical world.” Just so.

  1. The Left’s reaction to Trump:

    Almost tooo easy.

  2. Hahaha. Very funny. Thanks.

  3. Besides the left reaction to Trump, which is funny indeed, there are some things that bother me about your new POTUS. The first is that he seems to still think that he is in the elections campaign, behaving like a child re, for instance, the size of the crowds present. Not to mention his addiction to Twitter and similar quirks.

    I would say that he is still far from behaving presidential, and I am not sure he will ever be there. He seriously needs to grow up quite a bit…

    • Considering, as far as I know, you never saw a pol you cared for here, in Israel or anywhere else, and in Trump you are seeing a business tycoon and not a pol, I doubt you will ever find him to your liking. I expect he will continue to be the person of the campaign, warts and all, Twitter and all, and it remains to be seen whether he can get much done considering the whole D.C. establishment, most of the so-called “news” media and much of the ruling class is vehemently opposed to him. It’s a good thing he’s such a committed family man because otherwise he would be very lonely. If he ever starts “behaving presidential,” however, I will be as unhappy as you seem to be. We’ve had enough of those narcissistic clowns. Hope you like the U.S. embassy in J-lem. It should be there shortly.

  4. Snoop,
    I think he’ll surprise a lot of people on the governing thing, but I’m one of those who waits for proof, regardless of who you are.

  5. Unless the pols in Congress vote down a few of his better cabinet choices (secstate, energy, etc.) he should do very well in cutting back most of what Hussein did and possibly permanently monkey-wrenching large parts of our oppressive government. But, indeed, we should wait to see the proof of the pudding. I am savoring its aroma, however.

  6. The results will be the key. If his policies succeed in turning the economy and radical islam situation around, his support will grow and the stupids will decline. If not…

    I like the Z-man’s post today, though I could quibble with some of it. He posits that Trump’s election is the wake up call, the shot across the bows of the establishment Ds and Rs. If they take Trump down via their usual nefarious tactics, the next time will be, uh, interesting.
