Recent conjecture is that the Republicans very well might hold together and fight off the demand for more witnesses and, if that transpires, the vote will be held and the President will surely be acquitted. Even if there are more questions allowed, it is almost an absolute certainty that President Trump will be acquitted, for with Republicans having fifty-three Senators and the Democrats only forty-six plus one Independent who caucuses with them, the possibility of a total of sixty-seven Senators voting for removal is not going to happen. So, why are the Democrats so hellbent on continuing this process, a process which had its birth right after Donald Trump came down the elevator in the Trump Tower in New York to announce his candidacy in 2015? Every possible negative action in any political playbook has been thrown at the President since that date and not only did he win the election in 2016 in a massive upset, but he is right now set to win again and the opposition just can't stand it.
Many Americans, myself included, didn't vote for Barack Obama, who preceded President Trump in the prior eight years, yet there was no push for his removal despite many highly questionable actions such as Fast and Furious, the Internal Revenue Service scandal, Benghazi and many more. We held our fire and vowed that a change would be made and when Donald Trump came on the stage, we recognized that he was the man to provide that change. What's more, he developed a list of campaign promises which he has kept front and center in his Presidency, yet those who want to remove him and destroy his name knew that as well as we did. But they just can't handle it and refuse to admit that he defeated Hillary Clinton. Sure, he has some significant personality faults as do all humans, but Americans who voted for him voted for him because of what he promised in his campaign and he is delivering. He's weathered a Special Counsel investigation which is now beginning to show many violations of law and now is about the be exonerated in an impeachment trial for removal. He has had a ninety-nine percent level of adverse press coverage by a media that feeds the animosity with gusto, yet when he holds a huge rally even in Blue New Jersey over one hundred and twenty thousand request tickets and then the large overflow crowd weathers the cold outside while hoping to catch a glimpse of him on the way in our out. No Democrat or other Republican could do that. Those in disagreement with him can cut him off of the TV or refuse to admit what is going on, but they just can't stop him and they can't stand it.
Do you remember when Nancy Pelosi was working hard to capture the mid-term House majority and pledged that her effort would be to do the people's business and not to spend all her time going after the President? Well, she was not being honest and the result has been her party goes into the election cycle with nothing positive to show for themselves except trying to destroy Trump. And they are losing badly. It won't be long before we find that out and therefore, for the good of the country and their own sanity, I hope they will choose to act in a way that will help America heal instead of adding to the animosity. America deserves better than that and I think if they do, the President will respond with grace. He began his Administration that way until it was made clear to him that the opposition had no such intention and what we've seen just began. Let's end it, put it to be and work for the nation.
And I'll close with one final comment. Do you remember after President Obama defeated John McCain, the President was holding a meeting with leaders of both parties, including McCain? The President asked for ideas and McCain offered one, to which Obama shook his head and said, "I won, you lost, John." The Democrats needs to finally acknowledge the fact that they lost and Donald Trump won. Chew on that one for awhile.
