Good times

I miss the days of President Obama being a lawless Socialist tyrant doing all of that "Executive Ordering" and "Healthcaring"! Oh, and Recess Appointments! And siccing the IRS on Tea Party groups!

Did I leave anything out?

I'm mad at both

the right-wing lies laid the track but the Democrats got spooked and were way too quick to push Franken out of the way and may have created standards that the right-wing can use over and over again to potentially get rid of other Democratic politicians that become a nuisance.

We seem to constantly go through a succession of "annointed saviors"

I don't blame us for being hungry for a (much) better President than what we have now in 2020 but we have to keep somewhat grounded in our expectations of any said Presidential candidate as:

A.) Nobody we elect President is going to solve all problems and meet all of our expectations even if they get a full 8 year term. Presidents can do a lot and who is in the WH is incredibly important to the future direction of our country but there ARE limitations to their power and what they can do, especially with an insane(ly) mobilized and intransigent opposition.

B.) We need to keep our eyes more on what is happening now and during the next stop in the road, which are the 2018 midterms, which will decide who will control Congress for the next two years of (presumably) of Donald Trump's Presidency.

Nobody has even seriously announced for 2020 but we will know- all in good time- who is running in 2020 and have an opportunity to thoroughly evaluate everybody. Right now, lets focus on taking one or both chambers of Congress or, at the very least, narrowing the "numerical window" Trump/GOP have to operate under legislatively.
