Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Who is the sourest puss of all?

President Trump's State of the Union address has successfully turned a mirror on the Democratic Party. They appeared confused and angry as the president listed his first year accomplishments. In addition to a roaring economy he reaffirmed his pledge to secure our borders while showing a willingness to compromise on the illegal immigrants known as "Dreamers."  

The Democrats' disdain was on display as the president honored our veterans, showed pride in our flag and paid tribute to our national anthem. They refused to stand for the families whose children were murdered by the savage M-13 gang. They even refused to honor a 12 year old boy whose mission it was to place flags on the graves of veterans on Veterans Day. The Congressional Black Caucus wouldn't even acknowledge the lowest in history unemployment rate for African Americans. 

For eight years America survived a president who stood proudly over the demise of our republic. We were told the rotting of our nation's foundation was the new norm and the Democrats were the right party to manage this decline. Freedom loving Americans rejected this lie and did something about it. 

Donald Trump was elected to "Make America Great Again" and as his speech suggested, he's just getting started. Democrats fear a successful Trump presidency and their behavior at the SOTU address helps prove that. What Democrats understand, and what will become apparent to the American people, is that resistance is all they have to run on.
