to come clean. Trump was not my first choice (that was Carly Fiorina) or my second (Ted Cruz). But I have to give credit where credit is due—Trump has been very, very good. His cabinet picks have been astoundingly good. His SCOTUS pick is unbelievably good. He showed great wisdom in choosing Mike Pence as his V.P. He has done everything well as POTUS so far. Jobs are way, way up. Business is perking up rapidly. The stock market has rallied well into record territory. There really is not much but good news. I am not yet tired of winning yet, though. He makes me want to say, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” (but in a serious way)
And we should note that all the bad news stems from Obama. It is his legacy.
Yes, the foreign issues are a real concern, but they have been horrible (and made much worse) under Obama, so of course they are bad right now. We’ve had an incompetent clown running foreign relations for eight years.
Obamacare sucks, and it will be both painful and tricky to negotiate those particular waters. Danagerous. It was designed that way. So we need to cut Trump a little slack. Not a ton, but a little.
Obamacare is like a hook lodged in your arm–it is painful and you want it out, but the barb will tear tissue and cause more damage if you impulsively try to rip it out. The idea that you can remove the hook without pain and further injury is pure delusion. If you can, you push the hook through rather than tearing it out backward. That is both painful and counter-intuitive. It’s certainly not easy to avoid the impulse to just tear it out, though that may not be the wisest course.
And I’m not at all sure the others could have pulled it off as Trump is doing. I would be a small man indeed if I didn’t acknowledge that I was wrong. So I am willing to minimize my criticisms about Trump’s handling of Obamacare–he has been extremely competent in other areas and maybe I should just trust him. The long night of the Orc seems to be over and we are seeing the first of the lights bursting forth from the East.
