There was a time in our country that it didn't matter what the president spoke about, those in the party that opposed the president conducted themselves with dignity and demonstrated respect for the President. The democratic party is terribly disappointing.
Personally, I have a problem when the Democratic congress-people are giving the thumbs-down to the president on national TV and feel that they are somehow justified in doing so, when the president clearly articulated that he was seeking unity and cooperation and reaching across the aisle.
Watching Elizabeth Warren poo-pooing the president is utterly disgusting. Shameful even. It's also rude and unacceptable for the democrats to rush out of the building so quickly after the speech. The democrats are clearly taking a hard-line position, based solely on allegation that the President is a meglomaniac, a tyrant, a dictator and a racist. The democrats are claiming that they are worried about the country, because such a man as Donald Trump is in a position of so much power -- Get over it. The democrats lost the election just as they did in 2000! Life goes on -- lose with dignity!
The democrats claim that they are the guardians of democracy and that they are inclusive and forward-looking, even non-partisan. They claim to be the party of looking forward, not back. How so? The democratic response claims simply that the President's cabinet is just a group of billionaires who don't care about the common folk. From that they defend that social defiance is acceptable, because it somehow makes the president is horrible. Ha! As Ronald Reagan always said, "There you go again." I hated Reagan with a passion. I still feel that he was a horrible president and not my president, but the Democrats are committed to doing everything within their power to oppose the President without a tangible platform of their own. The claim is that he is a dangerous man who has declared war on immigrants.
What I hear is partisan bickering by the Democrats -- baseless claims that President Trump is eroding the credibility of our nation. I have seen fear-mongering and divisiveness the likes of which I never imagined that I would see in the USA. The Democratic response is that our representatives are out of control, because they (The Republicans) fail to understand that they work for us (the people). I don't feel that the nay-saying response by the Democrats has any solid ground. The speech was a positive speech and the President clearly reached across the aisle. The Democrats refuse to offer any specific policy proposals, but then they have the audacity to claim that the President's proposals are empty.
The bad behavior and stonewalling by liberals throughout the country is simply not acceptable. History may prove me wrong, but from my perspective the Democratic party is utterly out of touch with Americans and is inciting riots an division among people all across the country. I have observed friends and family members severing ties over politics and it saddens me. More troubling is that the Democratic party is the party inciting this divisiveness with rhetoric and propaganda beyond belief.
The actions of liberals, specifically the deliberate action to stoke the fires of fear is unacceptable. I was a registered Democrat for more than 25 years. I campaigned for Bill Clinton in 1992 and again in 1996, but the Democratic party has been so firmly planted in gridlock for so many years it's difficult to take the Democrats seriously.
I'm not hear to tout the virtues of the president. I simply would encourage people to give the man and his policies a chance. The Democrats have rejected President Trump out-of-pocket. I listened to the President's address objectively and I heard a man who was preaching inclusion and I hear liberals preaching only divisiveness. Shameful! Let's hear your comments on Thought-Rising.
