Nobody Wishes a President to Fail, Right?
Who would have suspected that even before the Obama – Trump transitional meeting the clock was already ticking as operatives worked feverishly to setup the president-elect over a Russian Collusion hoax operation involving an appointed and prolonged Special Prosecutor investigation that would find no wrong doing on part of the Trump campaign.
November 10, 2016, “I believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences, to now come together, work together to deal with the many challenges that we face,” Obama said, adding that he wanted Trump and his wife, Melania, the incoming first lady, to feel “welcome” as they make the transition.
“And most of all,” Obama continued, “I want to emphasize to you, Mr. President-elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed, because if you succeed, then the country succeeds.”
Isn’t that the way Americans are after a competitive contact sport to line up and shake hands, win or lose?
Well it used to be that way.
After the election of 2020 which was immediately called suspect it was expected that Trump would cede the election and offer a congratulatory hand to the chosen “victor”. So confident was the Biden camp that they erected a huge banner “Office of the President-Elect” almost immediately after the popular vote, but well before the Electoral College had even met or certified their ballots so there was and is no “Office of the President-Elect” even today.
During the Electoral College certification process on January 6th it became clear that something had to be done to detract the process. President Trump announced well in advance that he would be holding a rally in D.C. and MAGA supporters were told to walk down to the Capital so that their voices could be heard as they witnessed the certification process.
What actually happened was the so called insurrection of government initiated and orchestrated by President Trump where his unarmed supporters aimed at taking out the entire legislative body?
The only casualty on January 6th was MAGA supporter and USAF Veteran Ashli Babbitt, yet narrative and talking points are still being debated some 8 months later even after a little to non-reported FBI report shows no evidence Trump incited the violence that day.
However during the 4 years of the Trump presidency with every political victory was stripped away and turned into negative talking points and ridicule, two impeachments and constant harassment by political opponents in Congress and the media it is no wonder that Trump did not concede and there was no peaceful transition of power because the election was and is still being contested of apparent election and voter fraud which has not been settled.
What has not happened was the outgoing president setting up his predecessor for failure, like what had been done to him in 2016.
Nobody wants a president to fail, because then the nation would fail.
What I can’t figure out is why sitting members of government and even appointed cabinet officials have been so eager to advocate for the downfall of our nation? For a president to do a blanket reversal of his predecessor’s policies without weighing the consequences of his actions is unconscionable.
Constitutionally the president controls immigration, however not in violation of the Constitution or violating current immigration laws. To create an open border situation with Mexico, but maintain a closed border with Canada clearly has a nefarious purpose. To create chaos in Afghanistan by withdrawing US forces, then transporting “refugees” that may not all be refugees is also unconscionable.
To force American citizens into a closed society situation, mandate masks, social distancing and forced vaccinations is not what this country is all about. To threaten jobs, schools, medical facilities and medical professionals for not going along with forced vaccinations is unconstitutional and anti-American.
The failure of this president is the failure of America.
Who is to blame – Congress – Governors – President or Voters?
I’m sure there is enough blame to go around. We can’t go back and undo the past and it is ridiculous to even try.
What we can do is change the present so that the future is brighter for our children and their children. We American’s have a knack for that. One of the hardest lessons to learn is that when you find yourself down in a hole – stop digging!
I love what Patton said, “We herd sheep, drive cattle and lead men.”
The last part of his quote is to “Lead me, Follow me or Get out of My Way.”
Not one to mince words Patton was a firm believer of “Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.”
What America needs right now is a Patton-type leader who says what he means and means what he says, you know like what we had with #45?
But too many sissy-types got their feelings hurt. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
