Post Election, What Now?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 8, 2018

         IN THE END THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY SEATS FOR REPUBLICANS TO DEFEND. SO WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

         IF DEMOCRATS ARE TO BE BELIEVED, THERE WILL BE INVESTIGATION AFTER INVESTIGATION INTO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TAX RECORDS, HIS FAMILY MEMBERS AND MAYBE EVEN WHAT HE HAS FOR BREAKFAST.

         THE LEFT WILL DEMAND IT. SO WILL THEIR MEDIA ALLIES, BOTH OF WHOM WILL VIEW THIS AS PAYBACK FOR TRUMP DESPISING THEM. 

         SO MUCH FOR CIVILITY. ONLY A FEW DAYS AGO DEMOCRATS AND THE MEDIA WERE BEMOANING THE LOSS OF CIVILITY AND WANTING REPUBLICANS TO REACH ACROSS THE AISLE AND COMPROMISE. DON’T LOOK FOR DEMOCRATS TO BE EITHER CIVIL OR COMPROMISING. THEY NEVER ARE WHEN THEY HOLD POWER. THEY USE POWER TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS. REPUBLICANS SOMETIMES JUST WANT TO BE LIKED.

         THIS PRESIDENT GAVE REPUBLICANS BACKBONE AND ACHIEVED MORE THAN ANY OTHER RECENT REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. LEGISLATIVE GRIDLOCK WILL BE THE NORM, THOUGH THE SENATE IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE CONFIRMING CONSERVATIVES JUDGES TO THE COURTS. IF YOU ARE A CONSERVATIVE TUESDAY WASN’T ALL BAD, BUT LOOK FOR THINGS TO GET A LOT WORSE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
