Donald Trump pulled off an incredible upset by defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. But frustrated Democrats in Congress are doing everything in their power to stop him from keeping his promises to Americans.
They’ve certainly tried to do their share of that during his first four months in office. And now they’re already talking “impeachment.”
Robert Reich, the former U.S. Labor Secretary, claimed last week that Trump’s impeachment is a “real and growing possibility.”
Democratic Senator Mark Warner is vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee looking into alleged Russian interference in the election. He told friends he puts the odds against Trump completing a full term at 2-to-1.
Warner’s bias is obvious. Previously he said that the Kremlin paid an army of more than 1,000 people to create fake anti-Hillary Clinton news stories in key swing states. Maybe he could provide us with those 1,000 names next time he’s not busy.
Democrats Are Only Half the Problem
If it were only Democrats going after Trump, we might not have much to worry about.
That often happens in politics, and it’s usually less of a problem if your party has majorities in both houses. Like the Republicans currently do.
But so far that’s not working out too well.
If you recall, Republicans in Congress are the ones who kept the ObamaCare replacement bill from coming to a vote. More recently, they put together a spending bill so miserable that Democrats are celebrating over it.
How is Trump supposed to keep his promises to those who voted for him… when he doesn’t even have his own party’s support on key issues?
Telling It Like It Is
Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham nailed it recently when interviewed by Fox News.
“We do not have a Republican Party on Capitol Hill that can get its act together,” she said. “They can’t agree on basic points. They can’t agree to support the initiatives that were very popular last year… that Donald Trump campaigned on.
“Whether it’s the funding of the refugee program that is out of control, whether it’s the wall, whether it’s defunding Planned Parenthood at $500 million a year…
“This is demoralizing, disappointing, and I think they’re going to have hell to pay for this budget.”
Hey, Remember the Wall?
Here’s a great example of what she’s talking about. Why isn’t there any money in the budget for the promised wall along our southern border?
That was a huge part of what Trump campaigned on. That’s one of the reasons people voted for him. But it’s something Republicans can’t agree on, so it’s not included.
Let me ask you this. How often does one political party control the presidency, the Senate and the House at the same time? The answer is, not that often.
When you have that trifecta going for you, you need to take advantage of it. But the disunity in the Republican Party is ruining this golden opportunity.
Don’t Count on Republican Voters Next Time
And guess what? When Republican voters see that the stuff they were promised by their candidate isn’t happening, they’ll have much less incentive to go to the polls next time.
Democratic voters, on the other hand, will have plenty of incentive. And then those Republican congressional majorities could disappear.
We’ll all be shaking our heads, wondering how we let this incredible chance slip through our fingers.
So, here’s a message to Republicans in Congress: Get your heads out of your derrieres. Support your president. And help him accomplish the things that Republican voters want accomplished!
