It has been six months since Donald Trump was sworn in as President and the Left just still can’t accept that fact. I guess they think that if they deny it enough then magically someone will wave a wand and Hillary will become President. As I said in a previous column – get over it.

The reason I bring this up again is that liberals just don’t know how to act in the minority.  All of a sudden none of their ideas are being advanced and they don’t know how to do anything but attack Trump.  They seem to be afloat in a sea of hate and just don’t know how to get to the shore.
Now I am not naïve and I acknowledge that for the eight years of the Obama presidency the shoe was on the other foot and conservatives did everything we could to thwart him and his liberal agenda.  But, this just feels different because for the last six months I haven’t heard anything come from the Democrats that would even approach a plan for the nation.  They are in a full blown attack mode against Trump and nothing else.
What I really get a kick out of is the way the Democrats are attacking the Republicans on how they are approaching health insurance reform in the Senate.  Oh my goodness, they are howling because they aren’t involved.  Sound familiar? The Dems ignored Republicans 8 years ago and it was okay but now it’s not.
Not trying to belabor all these issues because I have talked about them in previous columns.  But, my point is that for the last six months we conservatives have not had to worry about the liberals marching their agenda right past any and everybody that didn’t agree with them – using legislative rules and sleights of hand and the all important intimidation and shaming approach.
Over the last 8 years prior to this, if we disagreed with the liberal agenda then we were ignored and if that didn’t work we were accused of racism (because the President was Black) or intolerance.  And don’t even think for a minute that we could get away with speaking our minds around liberal groups because it wasn’t allowed.
Now, I feel like we can actually say what we think and not be shouted down and threatened.  Of course they are still trying but they have lost their leader and his ability to use his office to push through their very liberal vision of America.

And, for the first time in 8 years we have a President that acts like he actually loves this country and isn’t apologizing for being the greatest nation on the planet.  In fact he is trying to hold the other countries accountable for their defense and for taking care of their own - instead of turning to us first to solve all their troubles.

Do I like some of Trump’s antics?  Not at all – especially his propensity to shoot his mouth off about 10 seconds before the logic part of his brain kicks in.  I wish that he would act more presidential and get the heck out of campaign mode.  But, the previous President pretty much stayed in campaign mode for his entire presidency.  

I think Obama was the consummate politician which Trump is not.  Obama did his damage behind the scenes while Trump is almost too transparent (if that can be a bad thing).  Obama just did things that we learned about after the fact when it was too late to do anything about it and Trump is just likely to tell you what he is going to do and then do it the next minute.

I said all along that, from my perspective, the most important issue in the election was the ability to move the Supreme Court back to the middle and even to the conservative side.  We need a Supreme Court that lives by the creed that “justice is blind” rather than try to re-engineer society through judicial activism.

And, in that sense, I believe that a Trump presidency is worth putting up with his quirks and shortcomings.  And, I guess it is also pretty fun to watch how the other side acts when they don’t get their way.  I think that the way someone acts when they aren’t in power shows volumes about their true character.  I will let you decide for yourselves if their actions are honorable or not.
