Transparent Tweeter Meter

Sean Spicer says our Tweeter-in-Chief has a “direct line to the American people.”

So, in an effort to tap that wire,  The Atlantic opened a Tweet Tracker. Cute, but I would have called it a Tweet Twacker. As you’d expect, its purpose is to track Trump’s Tweets.  The Tweet Tracker breaks down each presidential  tweet into “The Prompt,” “The Context,” and the “The Response.”

Republican Majority

The last Republican majority in the House and Senate was during the Bush administration. They were better known for pork barrel earmarks than governing.

 

Resist The Vote

What the people carrying “Resist” signs really don’t like are the Deplorables who voted for Trump.

An October Huffington Post headline read “Trump’s Refusal to Accept Election Results has Americans fuming.” And Hillary called Trump a “threat to Democracy” for refusing to say in advance he’d accept the results of the election.

But Trump won and now the shoe’s on the other foot. A Reason headline about protesters at Berkley says, “Thugs indulge their Weimar Dreams and Become the Totalitarians They Claim to Hate.”

Eviscerating ObamaCare

When President Obama met with party leaders in 2009 Eric Cantor pitched some ideas for the stimulus bill.  The president responded, “Elections have consequences and, at the end of the day, I won.” The 800 billion dollar stimulus went on to pass with three Republican votes. And ObamaCare rammed its way through Congress without any Republican support. At the time Democrats controlled the White House, Senate, and House.

Eviscerating ObamaCare

Now that the worm has turned Republicans are committed to eviscerating ObamaCare. But they’re divided over how to do the deed.

The program has never been popular with voters. A new Rasmussen survey finds that only 12% of voters want to keep it as it is. However 56% want the law improved piece by piece. Only 30% want to see the program immediately brought to room temperature.
