If you spend a few minutes watching the president perform for adoring crowds, you will see second rate television performer dying at the microphone but who doesn’t know it because he has picked a crowd designed to deliver applause.
The act could be excused if he were delivering his insults as part of a television entertainment. It cannot be excused when he has been handed the power to lead a great nation.
I live and worship with Republicans and I know them to be good and loving people. I hope they are listening to George Will and Steve Schmidt; they need to vote for Democrats at all levels of government until he is out of office and our legislative systems have been fairly apportioned. When we have accomplished those things I suppose they should continue to honor their fundamental values and go back to voting for Republicans. But first we must restore checks and balances in our government. This is a project that calls for statesmanship and citizenship of the highest order.
And, to my Republican friends who join us in this enterprise, stay committed to a two party system. Neither party does well without an effective and loyal opposition.
