The State of Our Union
By Kendra Miller – 2/8/2020
The Democrats were a rather glum-looking bunch during the State of the Union address last Tuesday evening.. They didn’t support the President’s endorsement of the First and Second Amendments. They weren’t happy that unemployment was down; that employment of minorities and younger Americans is up; that the number of illegal aliens crossing the borders has dropped for eight straight months; or that millions were off the rolls for food stamps.
“We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before,” shared the President.
“But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good,” but even this was rejected by the Democrats.
The theme of the speech was the great American comeback and it was interrupted by applause 129 times. The Democrats were unmoved by most of the speech, including President Trump’s recognition of several outstanding Americans and their contributions to the country. One has to wonder how the female Democrats found it impossible to support the fact that 72% of the new jobs created last year went to women.
The level of disrespect from the Speaker of the House to the entire Democratic delegation was unconscionable. It was apparent that the Democrats have forgotten that they were elected by their constituents and that their responsibility is to do what is in their constituents’ best interest. From pouty Pelosi, flipping through her papers, ripping the edges so she could make the grand gesture of tearing up the speech later, to the unsmiling House and Senate members, they all looked like it was beneath them to be in the House chamber for the State of the Union.
Following the President’s acquittal on the impeachment process the next day, Democrats are already planning how they can attempt to impeach him again. They are not about the people’s business; they are bent on a course of retribution…again. Perhaps it’s time to put some new representatives in the House and Senate who will actually do what is best for “we the people.”
As President Trump said in closing, “My fellow Americans, the best is yet to come.”
