Tired of Winning Yet?

One of Trump’s campaign promises was that we were going to be winning so often  that we’d just get tired of winning. I’m curious about when that winning is going to start.

Trump’s incompetence — and that of the Republicans in general — has proven to be worse than I dreaded. Hard to believe I could have overestimated a man for whom I had — and have — zero respect.

The Republican unpreparedness for their two biggest goals — repealing Obamacare and reforming taxes — has been dumbfounding. How could they be so thoughtless beyond the mere shouting of their cliches? What excuse could they possibly have for being so careless with their responsibility to our nation and the world?

It is all very close to unbelievable. We knew all along Trump himself was incompetent. . . but the whole party??? Wow. Surely this must be some slapstick comedy and soon the director will yell Cut and life will get back to normal. Right?

If the incompetence weren’t so distractingly ugly, we’d be much more upset by the many, many signs of sheer corruption in the Trump White House. The nepotism and profiteering are both of such huge proportions that the nation seems to have been numbed. There could have been no excuse for anyone to be surprised by the total lack of character in Trump. He had been demonstrating his true nature for many years. The amazing thing is that the Republican leaders have done so little to resist the awful lowering of ethical standards in the White House.

Such shame they are bringing to America. . .
