Petulance defines Democrats who have accomplished nothing on behalf of their constituents while focusing on the hoax impeachment
Watching President Donald Trump deliver his third State of the Union address to the nation Tuesday night, Americans would be hard pressed not to feel pride in his recitation of accomplishments and promises fulfilled on behalf of the people of the United States.
It was a splendid speech, delivered so brilliantly it caused applauding members of congress to stand and chant, “Four more years!”
President Trump interspersed his speech by introducing numerous citizens — ranging from a young girl receiving a scholarship to bypass her failing school to 100-year-old Tuskegee airman Col. Charles McGee, the great-grandfather of the 13-year-old boy beside him who aspires to go to the Air Force Academy, and a reunited military family — as the president related their inspirational stories.
He awarded a clearly surprised Rush Limbaugh, seated beside First Lady Melania Trump, the Presidential Medal of Freedom one day after the conservative talk radio icon announced he was diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer. The medal, presented by Mrs. Trump, is the nation’s highest civilian honor. Limbaugh, clearly moved, wiped away tears.
Viewing the speech, given the evening before Wednesday’s impeachment vote, it was clear why President Trump’s approval ratings are soaring. Markets are reaching new highs, jobs are plentiful, incomes are increasing and unemployment is at historic lows. But cranky Dems can’t handle the good news. Petulant House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who appeared to be chewing the inside of her cheek, as she flipped through pages, reached a new low in civility. She and Vice President Mike Pence were seated directly behind the president on the dais. At the conclusion of his speech, she stood and in an obviously rehearsed dramatic fit, tore up her copy of his speech. (brief video.)
A notable exception was Arizona Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, wearing a vivid purple dress, rather than joining her unified female Dems clad in suffragette white, symbolizing nothing but depicting their group think. Surprisingly, Sinema rose and applauded a key provision of President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, while the rest of her party sat in stony silence.
Earlier in the day, the much heralded Democrat Iowa caucus was a botched mess as the Dem tech geniuses couldn’t produce a timely result of which Socialist was leading, causing the Iowa party chair to refer to the debacle as “unacceptable.” These are the people who want to run our country.
