All presidents fail at something sooner or later, but I don’t remember a time when we were so determined to make it happen. Our expectations for fixing the problems dumped in Trump’s lap should be pretty low. There is a very long history of failed presidential leadership and unsolved problems before him. Instead of cutting Trump some slack, Americans want this president to fail at the very same problems his predecessors never successfully tackled and yes, North Korea is on that list.
What could President Trump’s payoff possibly be for getting rid of his attorney general? So far that question has no answer. An attorney general doesn’t have to be a president’s best friend, but the dirty work they do is a critical asset. This is one relationship that can’t be compromised. It has to work.
Like other things Trump, it’s not working.
I don’t recall Barack Obama making many speeches to the NRA. Maybe he did, but somehow I doubt it. He liked talking to the press and rubbing elbows with celebrities at White House bashes. Obama hung around people who helped him look good. It made sense. PR is important to a president.
People who adored Obama don’t like Donald Trump.
Too bad America’s left isn’t more militaristic. Missiles and uniforms would add some impact to this year’s May Day rallies. Russia is way ahead of our liberals on this one. How can you celebrate May Day without a show of force?
Strength in numbers sounds impressive, but when all you are doing is demonstrating with no power and nothing to back up your words the numbers only make things worse.
