The morning news shows are filled with an incredible amount of handwringing about the mountain of crises facing the incoming Trump administration. Suggesting (stating really) that The Donald isn’t up to handling The Doom facing America. After hearing this for 24 hours, the question that came to my mind was why? If the Obama administration was so chockfull of experts, if it had all the “right” people”, if it did things they way they were “supposed” to be done, why are things such a mess?
Are they afraid Mr. Trump is going to involve us in 15 years of pointless war? Oh wait, that’s already been done. Are they afraid Trump will lose control of the southern border and flood the country with 30 million illegals? Oh wait, that’s already been done. Are they afraid Trump will import so many “refugees” that hate us we will experience an unending stream of “domestic” terrorism? Oh wait, that’s already been done. Are they afraid Mr. Trump will negotiate bad trade deals that only benefit the multinational corporation at the expense of the American worker? Oh wait, that’s already been done.
They make such a strong case that Mr. Trump isn’t up to handling the disasters facing America, but they don’t ask why. If the old way didn’t work (obviously), why are you so resistant to a new way? Once again demonstrating that if you don’t learn from history…
