There is an old saying that if you are digging a hole and it’s getting so deep it is difficult to get out, the best procedure is to stop digging.
Such an admonition might well be delivered to the Democratic Party and their compliant mainstream media. The reason for this is that by fixating on the Russian probe, both the Party and the Press have offered little or nothing in the way of constructive legislation for the American people.
This obsession coupled with their constant attacks on President Trump leaves them with not much to offer the voting public in 2018.
During the hectic 2016 Presidential Race, Trump was often questioned about whether or not he would accept the final result of the upcoming vote. His usual response was that he would decide later. Such a request was never made of Hillary Clinton, but as it turned out, neither Hillary, the rest of the Washington Democratic elite nor the disenchanted Democratic voters were willing to accept the final vote count. It has even gone so far as Hillary’s trained pit bull, her running mate Senator Kaine, who has stated that the word “treason” should be applied in the Russian interference matter when it comes to the President himself.
At the present time, the Republicans’ failed attempt to repeal and replace Obama Care has garnered almost as much air time and print as the Russian probe. The talking heads of the left-leaning media are practically chortling over this GOP debacle. Apparently most of them have forgotten the way Obama Care was passed, the horrendous roll-out, everybody including the President himself lying and the statement that the American public was too stupid to understand it.
As of this writing, it looks as if Congress is going to give up part and maybe all of its August recess in an attempt to solve the health care problem. It is interesting to note that Nevada’s Senator Dean Heller is one of the most critical votes on the eventual passage of this legislation.
Adding to the Republicans’ travails in getting a majority vote in the Senate is the fact that a key figure, Senator John McCain, has been recently diagnosed with severe brain cancer.
In assessing Trump’s first six months in office, it is true that while key legislation such as health care reform, tax reform and infrastructure have yet to be passed, it is also true that the general mood of the populace is reflected in the soaring Stock Market and in essence, Trump was sent to Washington to clean up the constant pettifogging and dawdling that has occupied much of the legislators’ time. As a man of action rather than empty words, Trump is an individual who lets his accomplishments speak for themselves. His many buildings, golf courses and other investments attest to his ability to get things done. His frustration over the ineptitude of professional politicians to achieve results in most matters that affect the welfare of the citizens is understandable.
