None of this makes sense
Well, this just came across my Twitter.
President Barack Obama's popularity is the highest it's been since winning re-election in 2012. It's higher than Ronald Reagan's. It may climb higher than Bill Clinton's when he left office.
And yet on Tuesday, enough voters in enough states voted to elect Donald Trump as President of the United States.
One of these things is not like the other.
Yes, it will probably turn out that Hillary Clinton will win the popular vote by over 2 million votes. Imagine, if you will, if the roles were reversed: If Mrs. Clinton won the Electoral College, but Trump pulled in more raw votes. The College would be done away with in a heartbeat.
A country which approves of Pres. Obama's performance by double digits should not have elected a man like Trump. Yet, it did.
Are President Obama's approval numbers solely from blue states? Are they now inflated as those blue state voters realize the peril in which the Republic lies?
Pres. Obama saved the auto industry. He saved the banking industry. He prevented a second Great Depression. He brought the peace of mind of health coverage to 20 million people. He restored America's standing in the world. The list goes on. And none of it was good enough.
Now that the hangover is done, people are realizing what is about to happen. People realize that Donald Trump will be an unmitigated disaster. They realize that the last, best hope on Earth of which Abraham Lincoln spoke is on life support. And now, like unfaithful lovers, they're calling out for Pres. Obama. "Save us! Save us!"
But it's too late. The bell cannot be unrung. They made their beds, and will have to suffer the parasites in the sheets. As the Trump Administration rolls on for the next four years, they will cry by the rivers of Babylon, mourning all they have lost.
They have sown the wind. We will all reap the whirlwind.
