If you relish in seeing your opposition in tears, frustrated, nothing going their way, upset to the point of depression, and you’re conservative, you’ve come to the right place! It seems that the past week has been about the worst week many Dems can remember.
It looked like it would be ok, with possibly four or five Republican Senators jumping ship and voting for witnesses in the impeachment trial. Alas…that didn’t come to fruition as only Susan Collins and Mitt (The Traitor) Romney waffled and the Democrats lost that vote 51-49. They immediately took to the microphones and cameras, declaring impeachment to be “a sham”. Of course they were right. It’s been a sham since the beginning!
Next up was the Iowa Caucuses. It was the Democrat’s turn to shine. They were going to whittle their dozen or so candidates still in the field down to maybe six or seven (including Steyer and Bloomberg). Alas…more misery as Iowa couldn’t get the votes counted. Well, that and the guy the mainstream Democrats hoped would do well finished a distant fourth and won’t be pulling any delegates out of that state. Frustration started to set in.
The very next day, the State of the Union speech took place. Donald J. Trump raised his game, giving one of the best speeches he’s ever given. He stayed on message, he never once mentioned impeachment, he even brought up several of his accomplishments that were actually strong Democrat programs that HE took credit for getting through Congress. In the end, the vision Americans will carry with them is a depressed Nancy Pelosi actually ripping up the State of the Union copy the president handed her at the beginning of the speech. It demonstrated absolutely no class in the Speaker. It showed the world how petty she was, and by association, how small the Democrats were. In the midst of the SOTU, Democrats learned that Iowa had only counted 62% of their votes in the last 24 hours and were still nowhere near declaring a winner.
Moving on to Wednesday, Democrats knew the obvious was coming. It was the day the Senate would vote on the articles of impeachment. Now, I don’t think there is a person in this country with an IQ over 50 that believed Donald Trump would be convicted on anything. And he wasn’t. In fact, Mitt (The Traitor) Romney was the only Senator to jump ship, showing he clearly doesn’t belong in the Republican party, and giving total justification that the correct person (and i HATE to say this) won the election in 2012. The “abuse of power” article went down to defeat 52-48 (needing 67 votes to pass). The “obstruction of Congress” article went down to defeat 53-47. As I said on a few other blog comments, Donald Trump and the free world cheered…Atlas Shrugged!
So, now Democrats everywhere are “depressed”. They haven’t had anything go their way this past week. They’ve shown what babies they can be when they don’t win, and it’s on display. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to be much better this week as they get back to normal in Washington, DC, and the presidential candidates try and winnow out a few votes from the folks in New Hampshire on Tuesday. The Democrats hope basically that Bernie Sanders doesn’t pull off a win, though early polls show him well ahead of Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren in third, and Pete Buttigieg in fourth. Then it’s on to Nevada and South Carolina.
A few more losses, and Democrats may well have to decide it’s not worth it to run anyone in for president this year. Oh my!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
