Trump falsely bragged that he's done more than any other recent president in his first year in office, including signing bills into law.

Another lie.

Actually it's bull$h!+. 

If Trump claims something, anything, be certain he's lying or bull$h!++ing.

Let’s give credit where credit is due. He has played more golf in his first year than any other president, he has tweeted more than any other president, and he has lied more than any other president. I am sure he is number one in some other areas too.

Trump has spent a third of his first year in office golfing and vacationing at one of his properties, and then charged the American people for his golfing and eating his burgers and drinking his cokes.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw, and others... what do you think the bill is for a guy who said he'd hardly ever leave the White house because he'd be so busy?

Remember those folks who carped about how much it cost for Pres Obama and Michelle to travel for the US? I bet they're complaining everyday this guy is outside of DC. I mean not only is there the travel costs, but he's paying himself. President Double Dipper.

He gets paid by us to be president, we provide room and board and then he goes instead, not to Camp David to relax, which we also provide, but to his hotels. And then we pay that bill. TO HIM!!!

I'm sure the blokes that bought his golfing and Obama this and Obama that bombast are really mad now. Aren't they?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, the folks who criticized Obama for his vacas and golfing are completely silent over the fact that Trump has spent 1/3 of his first year as president on vacation and in his luxurious mansions and properties while billing the American people, you and I, for staying at his own resorts.

We knew he was a con artist and a scammer, but the folks who voted for him are besotted by his lies and bull$h!+.

You won't read a sentence about this on their blogs or news sites because they are unabashed hypocrites.

The good news is that the rest of the country is disgusted, and they will vote the Goopers out in the 2018 elections and Trump, if he isn't indicted and impreached and in the clinker, will be gelded by the Democrats in the Senate and House.

Besides quantity, quality also matters. The most important bill Obama signed brought health insurance to millions who had not had it before. The most important bill Trump signed dictates a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy, and will explode the national debt which Republicans once claimed to be so concerned about.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw... be still my heart. It does indeed look as if a wave is building.

If the Dems somehow take the Senate too, I'm sure when Schumer announces that we have to wait to approve any judges Trump nominates, all the Republicans, including McConnell will say he's an honorable man.

At least they would if they were being intellectually honest and consistent.

How 'bout it Skud... is that an honorable thing for Schumer to do should the Dems recapture the Senate? After all, it was the GOP who got that ball rolling.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Infidel753, the people who will be hurt the most by Trump's destruction of the ACA are the people who supported him in the poorest states.

Dave, all trump has to do to ensure the Dems take the House or the Senate is just continue to be his disgusting self. He keeps losing supporters every month. Wait till they lose what little social programs they have left to help them survive in Trump's "winning so much they're losing" world.

I hope they have the guts to block every judge, especially Supreme Court nominees. By their treatment of Merrick Garland, Senate Republicans forfeited any right to be treated honorably or fairly. If they held that seat vacant for eight months so Trump could fill it, we can hold one vacant for two years so Gillibrand (or whoever) can fill it.

be still my heart

And don't forget that 2018's map is vastly unfavorable to us, with few Republican-held seats up for election and most of those in very red states. Yet the coming wave still makes it plausible that we could scrape together a small majority there. 2020 will be far more favorable to us in the Senate, and it will be a Presidential election year as well. We could get a Democratic President and a huge Senate majority. Then we reverse their tax "reform", restore net neutrality, establish universal coverage, and otherwise wipe the effects of Republicanism from the face of the nation.

Know hope.

Dave Miller said...

Infidel... if all plays to the norms, the most vulnerable seat in 2020 is Jones in Alabama... he will no doubt lose.

As McConnell and other GOP leaders pointed out, there is no law requiring timeliness in seating new judges. I'm with you... NOT. ONE. JUDGE.

And if conservatives complain, bring on the quotes from McConnell and the rest of their leaders after what they did to a centrist like Garland.
