I don't like losers. Donald Trump
Our President-elect just wrapped up an electric lengthy speech to an overflow exuberant crowd in Cincinnati. Chants of "Lock her up!" and "Build the wall!" and "Drain the swamp!" filled the arena.
Mr. Trump was an animated, energized powerhouse. A force. He reiterated his campaign promises vowing to get them done.
Some losers from campaign Clinton were a momentary distraction. Mr. Trump said maybe they'd not heard Hillary lost, chuckled, and moved on.
One thought comes to mind ...
Stand by, America. Change is a coming!
Unusual times we witness.
Think about it - a President who's not yet but carrying on as a President and a President who is but is still clueless and carrying on as such.
With the news of Carrier jobs staying put (for which President Obama mocked Mr. Trump) and other actions Mr. Trump is taking, for all intents and purposes it's President Trump. We just make it official on 20 January 2017.
What a strange script.
What must be going through President Obama's mind?
O'er the ramparts we watched ...
For eight years the making of a national and international mess - his legacy. An opportunity lost. Two actually. That makes for a two-time loser.
There's no need to recap the particulars - we live them.
Was it incompetence?
Was it deliberate?
It matters but not so much at the moment.
As Francis Scott Key saw - our flag is still there.
She is resilient.
Beautiful our star-spangled banner.
And now in America there's a strong sense of competency, accomplishment, and optimism in the air. It's overpowering the noise from skeptics, critics, and downright bums.
We know how President-elect Trump's Cabinet is shaping up.
An adult is surrounding himself with adults - all who understand complex problems and know how (for they've proven so) to go about fixing them. Fix them they will.
This evening President-elect Trump told the crowd General James Mattis, USMC (Retired) is his choice for Secretary of Defense.
Cheer they did.
Our enemies were just informed they have a new problem. A big problem.
The smell of fear fills their air.
Sleep peaceably, America.
